The Circus Farrier

Check out this detail from an old photo for sale on eBay this week. It's from a collection of photos of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus in the late 1930s or early 1940s. The credit is given to a photographer in Chicago.

The entire image includes a performer perched on the horse's back while he's being trimmed!

The starting price puts this photo out of the reach of blog writers but if someone wants a nice piece of history, click here to place a bid. The auction ends on March 12. Hoofcare and Lameness would love to publish this image!
