The World Championship Blacksmith's Competition

On Friday, we spent a couple of hours cheering on our good friend, Steve Walthall, at the World Championship Blacksmith's competition in rainy Ashland, Virginia, at the State Fairgrounds. The Fair had been cancelled due to the weather, but the semi truck w/ the forges was moved into a huge livestock barn.  We watched Steve and the others have 1 hour to forge 2 horseshoes based on a design they were given.  And, then, we watched the farriers have 12 minutes to make a shoe based on a 10 second look at a foot.  It was very impressive!
