The story of this little boy is completely different from all the stories that we get to read or watch on social media because young boys who are part of the horse world usually aspire to be great future riders or showjumpers but the one in the video below would like to be a great farrier in the future. It is really great that a lot of these children have different passions within the horse world because it will be reflected in the future when there is going to be a need for horse people in different disciplines and jobs.
If there is a lack of people who would like to try a certain sport or discipline there is a huge probability that that discipline will go extinct. It is not always about liking to do it when it comes to all the economic factors that prevent you from following your passion and turning it into professions. Take mounted archery for instance.
It is such a great discipline who has been so popular centuries ago, maybe as popular as soccer today that might go extinct soon simply for the fact that there are not a lot of people interested in the discipline. Sometimes we don’t appreciate things enough until they are gone. If we are talking about farriers, if there will be no one interested in doing it it would be really bad because they are very essential on a horse’s physical health. Let’s hope it won’t be difficult to find farrier in the future.
When I see boys like the one in the video below who actually enjoy doing it I get a little more optimistic about the future because he is doing a great job and his role will be very essential in the future. That’s why farriers can’t be appreciated enough for their job because it is very difficult to understand the importance of it until you are a horse owner yourself an see the struggles with the horse hooves. Well, apparently the struggle for all horse owners within the same community had ended. Have a look and watch this amazing young boy put in work.
