Somebody should tell this farrier fella that using a rasp like that when burning on is dangerous and there's a possibility the rasp could slip and he will burn himself. It happened to me once. At least.

Hot Shoeing Photograph

Here's a photo for Friday. I love how the photographer Antonia Steeg has captured the hot scale coming off the shoe as it's being shaped. I'm shaping a Kerckhaert Classic horseshoe with a Jim Blurton turning hammer on an O'Dwyer 40kg anvil.
