Adam came up to help build the forge. We used scrap metal and a truck brake drum found on the property.

Learning to bend metal

We learned how to bend metal today. My friend Butch, who is a ferrier, brought over his portable forge and taught us the basics. We forged horseshoes into circles and a square. This was lesson one, we'll be having a few more classes from him before we leave next month.
