Friends at Work: How Many Guys Does It Take to Shoe a Horse?

Some things are the same the world over. People hear that tap-tap-tap of the farrier's hammer and it's like a call to meeting, no matter where you are.

In this case, "we" are in Punjab, one of the four states of Pakistan.

Here's the worldwide formula: One guy has to own a horse. It takes two (at least ) to do the work. And two to stand around giving a running commentary.

Meanwhile, in the capital city of Islamabad, the Olympic torch was passing a horsedrawn wagon. Perhaps the runners were exhausted...and maybe this fellow in the cart was on his way there!

Note: “Friends At Work” is a regular feature of the Hoof Blog. When newspapers and web sites alert us to features on our hard-working readers and farflung friends, I sometimes can figure out how to link to the story and share the photo with blog readers. Preference is given to people who aren’t normally in the news…and the more exotic the locale, the better! Scroll down the blog to read more "Friends at Work" posts from all over the world. You could be next!
