Sun, wind, rain, snow. The weather can play havoc with your skin. And the last thing you want to think about when you are under a 17’2 hunter is raw, chapped, and cracked hands.
As a farrier, you are passionate about the care and well-being of horses. Your job is physically challenging and often mentally demanding, but the sight of a happy and freshly shoed horse is the reward for a job well done.
However, this work is also demanding on your hands, extremes of heat, friction from tools, and being subjected to dirt and grime, your skin can look in desperate need of some care and attention of its own. Many farriers suffer from dry, sore chapped, cracked, and brittle skin. Exposure to the harsh winter elements only exacerbates this problem, left untreated it can become painful and even lead to an increased risk of infection.
Protective gloves may help but are often impracticable and the additional need for regular washing as you travel from client to client can damage your hand’s natural, protective layer.
Remember, you live by your hands!
