I attended the winter clinic held at Anvil Brand Shoe Co in Lexington, Illinois this February. The clinicians for the weekend were farrier Cody Gregory and blacksmith Brian Brazeal. They put on an excellent clinic but it was hard not to be just as excited and perhaps even more awed by Tom Willoughby’s “Vulture Family”. Tom has been shoeing horses, creating music and phenomenal carvings and blacksmithing for years. He was gracious enough to give us a bit of detail on how he came to this idea. I have that video clip explanation on the FPD YouTube channel.
You should do whatever it takes to check out Tom’s Facebook to see much more of his exceptional talent. We’ll try to get our hands on more items to share with you.
