Shoeing Clydesdale Horses


This afternoon I am reporting on a trip to Glasgow Green, Scotland to watch farriers at work on Clydesdale horses which I believe to be owned by Glasgow Council. Quite an unusual experience for city folk to observe.

Nice animals. I believe they originated as heavy horses to carry the weight of medieval knights with heavy armour.
