Blacksmithing

Blacksmithing

A man shoes a Clydesdale (right), while other men tend forges and work at anvils, around 1908. Horsepower was to the fore in farming until the 1930s when tractors became widespread. Horses needed horseshoes, so blacksmiths and farriers (who shod horses) were essential on large estates, which could have up to 100 working horses.
