Welcome everyone, today I'm speaking with Liz Longworth, CF. I first met Liz a few years ago in the Heartland during a blacksmithing course.

The pile of shoes…

If you nudge someone and ask who that character and the great hat is, they wi…
 
One of the fantastic things about attending something like the AFA convention or Summit is you can be chatting with somebody about farriery and not even realize that you were talking to a legend. That is what happened when I met Dave Showen. Later on, after our conversation, I asked Chris Gregory if that was who I suspected it was and he said yes. …

I wanted to start this episode off with a term we use in my practice. Unfortunately, we don't get to use it often, but it is always exciting when we do, let me explain.
