Lucky enough to have a horse.
Awareness of the outside world. It goes over the nose.
Most of the 2020 shoeing routine remains as it was. Money left on a stool. Horse left in crossties. Assistant holds horse. [Shoeing at a Social Distance]
I have added a mask to wear when I am in that half of the barn. To switch horses. To scoop poop.
Do I think there is a high probability of contagion from a few minutes of arm’s length proximity in a well-ventilated, semi-outside space? Nope.
Do I want to risk the faintest chance of transmitting the disease to my blackmith’s elderly & ailing parent? Nope.
Stay safe. Stay sane.

Well done! And well said! Stay safe and well!
Sounds like a well oiled protocol! My farrier does mine without me there thankfully and just charges my credit card when he’s done lol
Thank you. Thank you.
Blacksmith will not go fetch horses. I must be there. Since “there” is 100 yards away, not a problem.
