That’s a different world. Interesting to see.
different all right,its like living in the last century,Im amazed we dont get around in a horse and cart.Life is very simple and thats what I like about living out here.
I visited Bullo River station a while ago. It’s great to see this sort of thing in real life.
Thanks,Im glad I was just taking the photo and not doing the shoeing.
Horseshoeing is sort of a lost art. And, finding a good blacksmith and farrier is not easy.
Yes they have to shoe out here as there is some very rocky country, had a guy here the other day and he has invented plastic shoes, they out last the metal shoes and are very light and you can bend them to shape, I was amazed that plastic can be that strong. He came up with the idea with his wife’s cutting up board.
see ya Callie
Fascinating series of photos … and reading your comments about plastic shoes is interesting. I wonder what the traditional folks say about them?
I thought the plastic shoes were a joke but now I think how light they would be, he has only just started marketing them.And yes I think the traditional guys arent impressed.
