I send my contribution to this theme early as I shall be away visiting friends...


On the occasion of the commemoration of Escalade *) in Geneva it has always a lot of street activities. In 2011 two women blacksmith farriers manufactured horseshoes and sold them.

*) L'Escalade, or Fête de l'Escalade (from escalade, the act of scaling defensive walls) is an annual festival held in December in Geneva, Switzerland, celebrating the defeat of the surprise attack by troops sent by Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy during the night of 11–12 December 1602. The celebrations and other commemorative activities are usually held on 12 December or the closest weekend.

I have never seen lady farriers, not that I have seen more than a score of blacksmiths. Did they do any shoeing? Street fairs are always fun, and looks like nice weather for it.
