No furnaces today

Nor open fires, bee smokers or incendiary devices of any ilk. Total Fire Ban days declared in South Australia prohibit anything that may cause a fire, including the farrier's mobile forge.

So cold shoeing for the horses it is. Luckily the wonderful Mike is a highly skilled farrier, competition winner, president of the SA Master Farrier's Association and all round nice chap.

He has an impressive anvil. Jeremy was more impressed with the shady, cool, mobile farriery kit. Luckily the forge wasn't lit.
