I have fond memories as a young teenager of Peter shoeing my ponies. Peter was always happy,always whistling while he worked and was liked and respected by many people. Peter must have been very proud of Jared following in his footsteps as a farrier and doing the same amazing job.My deepest sympathy to you Lynley and all your family, your Dad will be so missed by you all. Treasured memories of him will last forever. X Viv Harcourt
