"American Farriers Journal: Adhesive Hoof-Care Solutions to Benefit the Senior Horse" (0.75 CE)
Posted: June 4, 2020
AFJ Executive Editor Jeremy McGovern interviews Steve Muir CJF NZCEF DipWCF APF, a resident farrier at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Muir will focus on successes and shortcomings he has experienced while working with older horses.
The Hoof of the Horse Episode 35: Rodney King in North Canterbury, New Zealand (.5 CE)Released: May 22, 2020Rodney King is from the South Island of New Zealand, where he began teaching himself farriery. Within 10 years or so he was working at the biggest equine hospital in the world. I felt that that alone was worth interviewing Rodney to hear about. We also discussed how taking the AWCF exam can change your perspective towards horseshoeing, the tangibility of credentials as a farrier, and where it can impact and benefit your business. Rodney gave us insights into working in an equine hospital environment, his thoughts on the causes of the increasingly common problem of Suspensory Ligament Desmitis in sport horses, the importance of diagnosis when treating horses, and much more interesting and useful information.
Episode 34: Greg Murray in Barossa Valley, Australia (.5 CE)
Released: May 5, 2020How can getting out of your comfort zone help to broaden your horizons in farriery? Greg Murray has some great advice for farriers looking to travel with their work and experience more of the world, as well as sharing some of the challenges that you might face while doing so. We also learn about when he had 1 apprentice and 600 horses to shoe; the experience of working as a farrier on 5 continents; the horse racing industry in Hong Kong and South Korea, and much more. *Apologies for the ambient noise on some parts of the interview, this was last summer in Australia before audio equipment upgrades!
