For me, this has been a year of firsts.
Yes, we’re back. We moved from one web host to another. With any luck, you’ll never notice, except, of course, I blabbed.
A heartfelt “thank you” to Denise Alicea of Moons Stardust Designs who did a lot of the digital heavy lifting.
Anyway, I bet you’re wondering:
“What’s going on in the photo?”
Outside under a big yellow tent at the Massachusetts Equine Affaire trade show was a World Championship Blacksmiths competition.
Farriers from all over the US competed. The rules and whatnot are explained in the video below. Generally, everyone competing has an hour to make a specific kind of horseshoe.
I was in a sassy mood when I shot this video at the Massachusetts Equine Affaire.
I needed to be stoked up because the equine trade show is always the same weekend as the New England Crime Bake. I planned to attend both in successive days. Good thing Massachusetts is a small state.
As I proved in a previous post, the two events aren’t totally separate for me. And, in this post, I’ll show you that, if you’re writing a book related to horses, Equine Affaire, makes for a great place to greet the readers and booksellers.
