Iride, I was looking at the picture on your post trying to figure out what it is and it reminded me of an unforgettable experience. I was shoeing a horse at a boarding facility where there were outside pipe paddocks. There had been heavy rain the night before. I was trimming one horse when I noticed that someone had parked a car too close to a paddock and the horse inside was eating the paint off of the hood. Being the good Samaritan I was going to move the horse. Only it didn't want to be caught. It wheeled around and charged off driving with it's hind feet. About a wheel barrow load full of mud, manure and pee hit me right in the face. I didn't even have time to close my eyes. The woman holding the other horse just about fell on the ground laughing. It was definitely one of those moments when all I could do was join her. Some think being a farrier is a romantic job.
