History on the Hoof: Who Shod Dan Patch?

Who was the farrier for harness legend Dan Patch?

It doesn’t seem like a holiday, but there it was, noted on the calendar. “Dan Patch born this day, 1896.” I wondered, "How many people know who Dan Patch was?" And then I remembered that I've been meaning to write about his farrier.

Welcome to the story of the greatest horse you’ve probably never heard of.
