Students and Apprentices can first learn the shoeing sequence and look for ways to help such as handing tools and nails to the Farrier (teacher) at the appropriate time. Think about what will be needed next and challenge yourself to supply it when needed. As the routine is repeated setting up the work area and cleaning up at the end of the job. Gradually a student or apprentice learns the sequence and eventually through repetition and practice learns different aspects of being a Farrier.

I have been very happy every time I have brought horses to Butlers. Whether the students work on my horses or the instructor
s, they are very profession al. I have brought everything in from young col...ts for first trims to our good ranch horses and have never had a complaint. I have a mare with navicular that has flourished under their care.
My original intentions
when I went to school was to have the ability to shoe and keep my horses shod and sound, but after a few classes I was infatuated with everything about the foot and forge work! ...Butlers teach in a way that make sense and break it down so you get an extremely clear understand ing of the mechanics of how everything works together to make a horse sound and happy! Only thing I regret is not going sooner. Thanks to Dr, Butler, Jake and Pete.
The best farrier school in the world!!!

A quick review of the anatomy of the horse’s lower leg. In this video we use our Essential Anatomy model to illustrate different bones, tendons and ligaments. Model comes with a stand, DVD, and study guide. For more information go to www.dougbutler.com under study aids.
Continued from last week's blog where we we talked about getting horses to stand still for shoeing: How do you train horses to stand? What should owners expect?
