More accurately, I’m wondering about who first thought it’d be a good idea to bend a piece of metal and nail it to a horse’s foot.  Who would be mad enough to try nailing anything to another living creature’s foot?

The thought was triggered by listening to a farrier, who was recently kicked by a horse.   Apparently, it’s not a great idea to shoe a horse when it’s windy.
