To most people the farrier is just the guy (or gal) who appears every few weeks in a battered pick-up, wrestles a few horses while nailing shoes on their hooves, and then disappears. But if you ever manage to get one of 'em talking, you'll hear some of the wildest, strangest, funniest stories on earth. It's a unique profession, and it creates some unique circumstances.

The stories in this section are arranged in alphabetical order, by title. To read one, select the title. Have fun!

Oh yeah, before we forget. If you have a humorous story or joke that you'd like to submit, please do so by following the instructions on the "submissions" page. Thanks.
