Farriers in the field

The Shetland ponies are back to work and the farriers are in the field.  The farriers are the people who look after the ponies’ feet.  They are highly skilled.  It takes 5 years to learn how to become a farrier.

At Shetland Pony Club the farriers come every seven weeks to trim the ponies’ hooves to keep them in good shape.

Do the ponies mind?  Do they run towards or away from the farriers?
