Our farrier is a tiny mite of a thing. She isn’t likely much more than 5 foot nothing and probably weighs more than she looks because she’s pure muscle with NO fat anywhere. (I could hate her for that if she weren’t so nice.) But she looks to weigh about 100 lbs — sopping wet and wearing boots. She calls herself Coyote Farrier Service if you’re in the Mundare area and looking for a good farrier. Her name is Melisa. So, here’s Melisa building shoes for The Boyos. These will be regular iron shoes with borium on both toe and heels, with a pad between the sole of the foot and the shoe, and “that green goop that stops stones from getting in and thrush from starting” (only this stuff wasn’t green).
