Farrier Anvils Flying High

The aftermath of the Monetta Anvil Shoot, anvils fallen from the sky.

Farrier Product Distribution sponsored clinician Dave Farley, APF CF for the annual Monetta Farrier Supply Spring Fling. This event was held at Monetta’s shop in South Carolina and was attended by 90-100 farriers from the southeast region.

One of the highlights of the annual event is orchestrated by Jack Schwartz, CJF – and creates quite a ruckus. The day of the clinic Jack shot three anvils off, with two of the three reaching exceptional heights. Not recommended that you try this at home. Local law enforcement came by later checking to see if someone had been firing a cannon- must have thought the Yankees were coming.

    Great comment! For those who might not know, the AAEP is the American Association of Equine Practitioners the oroanizatign of veterinarians who primarily service the equine world. This paper, admittedly intended not the horse owner but the equine vet, contains one of the rare admissions about the lack of proper education when it comes to the equine digit.The trick in all of this is to get the typical horse vet to acknowledge that they really don’t have the knowledge necessary to properly diagnose and treat hoof problems. This is a perpetual battle for every hoof care professional, because owners naturally want to believe the person society tells us has the training: the vet. But as I keep trying to point out, that’s simply not logical.Steve
