Thirty years as a travelling farrier have taught Frank Morris a lot, and his highly entertaining A Farrier's Tales tell us about some of the lessons he has learned. Clearly, if you're looking after horses' feet for a living, it helps if you like horses and Shetland ponies, and donkeys and cows and a comatose Aberdeen Angus bull and a slippery mule, and even a very muddy old English sheepdog! But most of all it helps if you can get on with the owners of the horses that need shoeing. Some of them know about farming, some of them know about horses, and some of them - as Frank discovers - know now about owt. Being a Yorkshireman, he says his piece, asks for a cup of tea and gets on with the job. Luckily, he also has a fine sense of humour, and these stories form a brilliant and often comic record of his life 'at the sharp end' of caring for animals.
