George Fitzgerald - Horse Farrier

I met George as he was working on horses in a barn near my where my parents live in North Salem NY. He said he'd been doing it for over 50 years now since he was just 16 years old. He spoke of working his way across the United States and later across Europe as a horseshoer. It's a beautiful skilled profession I'd never given much thought to until I met George.
