A "farrier" is a shoer of horses or one who works with iron, a blacksmith. Larry Murray "The Ironman" does more than shoe horses, as he takes the old discarded horseshoes and recycles them into beautiful works of art.

He also incorporates horseshoe nails, hoof rasps and whatever he might find around his shop into unique creations and sculptures. At four hooves per horse and 10-15 horses per day, Larry can keep himself plenty busy fitting, shoeing and creating.
