Every 6-8 weeks, a gem-of-an-individual, Beate Anderson, comes through our front gate, compassionately donating her time and expertis to provide hoof care for the eight horses at HartSong Ranch. We owe a heap of gratitude to this amazing woman who gives so much of herself to ensure comfort and health in the lives(and feet) of some very special horses.
A personal note about Beate;
For those of you that have never seen a farrier at work, let me tell you, it’s back-breaking, highly skilled, hard labor. It can also be very dangerous. Probably not much taller than 5’6″ and maybe just a smidge over 110 pounds, Beate is by far, the strongest, leanest, most-in-shape woman I’ve ever known. She hoists, squats, lifts, and supports…files, nips, picks and digs…contorts, comforts and concentrates, all while wedged near or under the frame of a 1200 pound horse, that may or may not, be in an agreeable mood. It’s fascinating to watch her work. Strength, compassion, patience and an excellent work ethic, all rolled up into one. She is what makes women “mighty”.
