My Morning with Walt the Horseshoer

Walt the Horseshoer is our nomination for Man of the Year.

Basically, it was awesome. Screw journalism! I want to ride around with Walt and shoe horses, trim their hooves and bullshit with nice horse people.

...Maybe not. I got awful cold and I don't actually know much about horses. Walt knows a whole lot. He's like a horse podiatrist, manicurist and physical therapist are rolled into one jolly and knowledgeable package.

I do know that there are a lot of horses and horse owners in Central Oregon. I didn't know that in Bend, Sisters and Redmond there are enough horses to support more than three dozen mobile farriers (horseshoers) like Walt. 

Walt runs his own mobile horseshoeing service and spends his days visiting clients and taking care of their horses' hooves. Whether your horse needs new horseshoes or simply a hoof trim (clip, actually. See the videos below), Walt is your man.

We're profiling Walt the Horseshoer in next week's Culture section, check it out. In the mean time, watch the videos below to see in greater detail what it is that Walt does.
