I am interested in becoming a farrier, focusing on barefoot work. Unfortunately in my area, being an aporentice is unlikely. As of right now, I am.reading as many books and watching as many videos as I can. I know this won't get me the experience I need, but its a start until I move in a few months.
Someone mentioned to me that there is a model I can buy online. It is a fake horse hoof that has similar textures to a real hoof. It can be trimmed with farrier tools as easily as a real hoof. From my google searches, I can't find what he was talking about.
Have any of you ever heard of that? I think it would be a great way to start. I wouldn't have to worry about harming a horse, and it is good practice until I move and can become an apprentice farrier :P
