For the past few months, we have been asking the equine community worldwide to share their stories, pictures and videos with us for the 16th Annual National Farriers Week celebration this year from July 6 to 12. We received many submissions over the past several months, and here you will find just a handful of farrier photos and tributes sent to us during that time.
At American Farriers Journal, we want to extend our sincerest gratitude to farriers everywhere for all you do. From our personal experiences with you, to those we read about, you are truly a remarkable group of professionals.

They are available at www.americanfarriers.com/ff/2014spotlight.
Once again, thank you from all of us at American Farriers Journal!
