Yesterday, I had the privilege to ride along with my son who is a professional farrier. Zach is considered to be one of the best farriers in the Shenandoah Valley. No brag, just fact. 

The first barn we visited in Rockbridge County (VA) happened to be owned by a retired military veteran and his wife. They are both Civil War reenactors with a Virginia unit. The horse shown in the first image is in the process of being hot shod by my son. That horse is one of two that this couple owns that will be participating in the 2016 Battle of Cedar Creek reenactment this October 15th and 16th.
