So. A farrier came out today to shoe the horses. This moron managed to get one shoe on Duchess a calm horse. She didn't buck, she didn't rear up, she danced aroung, mainly because this guy was focused on her feet instead of calming her a bit. He threw up his hands and said "I can't help you". So I walked up to her, talked to her softly for about 10 seconds, reached down and picked up her foot. No dancing, no pushing. I have to think this guy is just a moron. One shoe. Great.
