FRIENDLY FEMALE FARRIER FIXES FEET (DONKEY)

Farmer Mary’s donkeys, MABEL and CLAIRE, had a visit from their farrier today. 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.
