16th Annual National Farriers Week — July 6-12, 2014
By Michelle Drewek, American Farriers Journal
Farriers work hard year-round to provide quality hoof care for horses worldwide. To honor their dedication and service, American Farriers Journal created National Farriers Week. Although we hope appreciation is shown all year long, we’re encouraging everyone to acknowledge farriers' hard work from July 6-12, 2014.
In its third annual Farrier Spotlight, through July 1st American Farriers Journal asked horse owners, riders, trainers, grooms, veterinarians and others in the equine community to submit photos, videos and stories about their farriers.
Farriers making a difference in the industry were also asked to tell about a mentor who has been meaningful in their career, or to share a unique story of how they helped improve a horse’s life.
These stories, photos and videos will be featured during National Farriers Week on Facebook, Twitter and at the journal’s website AmericanFarriers.com.
American Farriers Journal also posted a certificate for National Farriers Week that horse owners can download and personalize for their farriers. It can be downloaded at www.americanfarriers.com/ff/2014NFW.
