I had to share this picture. Today, my hubby and I went to visit a friend that lives on a small farm. They raise mini pigs and had a litter born on January 27th. I love piggies! (I don't eat pork...haven't had a bite of it since the movie "Babe" came out). This was my first time holding a baby pig! Loved it!

When I was in horseshoeing school I was not the best at the iron work. The instructor took pity on me and told me that what really made successful farriers was their horse handling ability. So true. I eventually got so I could make passable calks, clips, square toes and bar shoes but I was never one of those farriers who made a shoe from bar stock that looked like it came out of a machine. Mine looked like they came out of a forge. However, I could shoe horses other farriers couldn't without much trouble. I had many of the same customers for 25 years because they appreciated the way that I handled their horses and I always did a conscientious job. My shoes fit and didn't come off. My nails were straight and the clinches smooth. I came to feel like I have a gift with animals that is from God. I used to hunt. I gave it up. I felt like to kill a defenseless animal would be a violation of my gift. Its the same way with veterinarians. Some have a special way with animals and others don't. You have to give all equine vets credit though. Every day they put themselves in positions where they could be maimed or killed.
