Apparently you missed the pun LIGB. The guy that won , his name is Joseph... hence "Average Joe" Do I need to explain the reference about the "bucks" too? Bash

              According to a publication called the "Farrier Guide" the average (full time) Farrier salary is $92,623 per year.  And Farrier's who shoe racehorses make over $200,000 per year.  Seems I'm in the wrong occupation.  Unhappy

              The cost of nails, shoes, tools, and fuel(and usually a truck pulling a trailer), the amount of actual profit really isn't that great. Then insurance and the toll it takes on your body being hunched over and occasionally getting kicked, bitten, or holding a horses foot between your legs- while it thrashes about. If you're lucky, their legs even covered in mud!

              In the rain, snow and sleet, or pouring sweat in the heat. 

              Some of my best friends are farriers. Poor suckers! hahaha

              I do make sure my horses don't give them much trouble though. Except one that is a hat sniffer and neck licker... it's comical and creepy.

               

              Congrats to this winner ! I know he works hard and deserves to travel with his wife! I bet his back will so enjoy the time off!
