The horse shoe may be a good luck charm, but it takes skill to keep a horse in good shoes. Hoof health is essential to both horse and rider, and farrier Ernie Gaouette of Middleboro sees to it that his shoes fit like a glove. Here he looks over a horseshoe he crafted for a mare at Briggs Stable in Hanover. Gaouette fits each shoe to each hoof by hand.
