Tour Scotland Video Farrier Agricultural Show Perth Perthshire

Tour Scotland video of a farrier shoeing a horse on ancestry visit to the agricultural show in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. A farrier is a specialist in equine hoof care, including the trimming and balancing of horses' hooves and the placing of shoes on their hooves, if necessary. A farrier combines some blacksmith's skills, fabricating, adapting, and adjusting metal shoes, with some veterinarian's skills, knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the lower limb, to care for horses' feet.
