In this week's episode, we chat with farrier Ray Legel.
Ray Legel shod horses in Iowa and Texas for a few decades until a bad back ultimately limited his work to consultations.
Today, he spends most of his time in horseshoeing mentoring young farriers.
In this episode, he talks about his career, his published stories and insight on shoeing reining horses.
Following the interview, we've featured an excerpt from his book, "Tails of a Horseshoer." If you'd like to hear more of Ray's stories, more information can be found here.
The American Farriers Journal podcast is brought to you by Kawell.
Kawell began as a university project geared towards innovation, problem solving, and maintenance services for the veterinary industry. Over the last few years we have worked with specialized companies and professionals in order to develop the theoretical and technical basis needed to design and manufacture a therapeutic product for the care of horses and prevention of disease.
