A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Farrier Collection - The dictionary says: ".. to shoe horses; one who shoes horses; blacksmith; sometimes one who treats the diseases of horses." Tradesmen say, "Take care of your tools and they will take care of you." Throughout history the horse has been a very important tool. So it is only logical that horse owners have taken great pains to make sure that this indispensable tool is well cared for. It seems farriers are suffic-iently skilled in blacksmithing to forge horseshoes, and sufficiently skilled in medicine to know the best ways to treat and care for horses' hooves. The origin of the name "Farrier"? One theory is that Norman invaders of England, during the time of William the Conqueror, brought with them a "master of all the kingdom's horses," whose name was Henry de Farrariis. Another theory is that a French town near Paris called Ferrieres, known for its iron mines and craftsmen, was the source of the term "ferrer" for the shoeing and caring of horses' hooves. Regardless of how the term evolved, it is apparent that the skilled farrier is viewed today with special distinction and almost reverence. This is almost certainly a combination of the portance of the craft and the fact the horse is considered such a valuable living breathing treasure by those horse addicted individuals. Farriers!
