Horseshoe Making workshop, Esteli Nicaragua

After our stop at the leather workshop we made a quick detour to a horseshoe making workshop. In the back of a house, just after the kitchen, two men worked in a rhythm heating, pounding, and cooling the metal until it was ready. Once ready it was placed in a large canvas bag, already bursting with completed horse shoes, to be sent off to Masaya or Matagalpa, two big market towns. ( We also met a young boy very excited to show us his little bird and tell us all about how you know the gender-I love kids)
