Kirk Knowlton Show Farrier

Kirk KnowltonIf you shake Kirk Knowlton’s hand you’ll know he has used a hammer a lot in his life. Talk about a firm grip! I met Kirk today in between jobs where he’s set up as a show farrier. You can find a good definition of what a farrier does on Wikipedia if you’re curious.

It sounds like Kirk has been busy here at the National Show. He is very passionate about what he does and that comes through when you talk to him. He says that having a lame horse come to him and go away sound is one of the things that gives him the most satisfaction in his job. Besides this show Kirk also works the World Show and ApHC trail rides.
