  6. to whitebear and all i did not want to offend either i have personaly made a good living at this for a loooong time with a few forays into other ventures i wish hammerkid and anyone else all the best in this buisness and now to make everyone mad if it hadnt been for horseshoers who continued where would blacksmithing be today? isee alot of our blacksmiths kinda look down on horseshoers or adamntly claim they dont shoe horses but when you take a piece of steel and forge and properly apply it to a horses foot what are we but not alittle of both plus alittle vet knowledge doesent hurt !!!!
