MIDDLEBURY - The Vermont Farriers Association recently held their annual spring clinic at the Eddy Farm in Middlebury. Both Pethick, owner of Bedminster Forge in New Jersey and a certified journeyman farrier was the clinician. Farriers performed videotaped horse evaluations and shod horses throughout the day. The event was attended by 42 farriers, horse owners and interested people from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York. According to organizer Diane Saunders, one person even flew up in a private plane to land a Middlebury Airport just to attend the event.
