Very nice pics indeed! But it's not completely 'lost art', god bless. One of my best friends in USA (for one year the 'kind-of-a-father' for one of my daughters) shoes horses in Lambertville NJ. That business has changed a lot during last twenty years, but he still has and uses (and is training) all the old-fashioned skills of a blacksmith. And what decided his younger son? To be blacksmith, right!
