What does it take to put new shoes on a 1900-pound workhorse? Find out when farrier Charles Napravnik pays a visit to the barn. After firing up the forge and crafting a new pair of shoes for a team of Belgian horses, the smithy will trim their feet and nail on the new shoes. Throughout the day, visitors can help blacksmith Daniel Lapidow by turning the crank of the forge blower as he makes harness hooks, gate hinges, and other hardware needed on the farm. Initialed horseshoes and other hand-made items will be available for purchase.
