In some areas, there are more horses now than there were 100 years ago; so if you love horses and heating iron, start a mobile blacksmith business.
The trade of blacksmithing had almost died out.
Now, there is a strong demand especially for those who come to your stable with a portable forge towed behind a pick-up truck.
It’s hot, dirty work heating the iron over the forge and beating them into shape.
It takes strength to shoe a horse.
There are books on the subject, but again the best way to learn is from a blacksmith.
This trade is for men and women who like to work outdoors with their hands.
it helps a lot if you love horses.
