In honor of National Farrier's Week 2018, "If horses were people" is back with an episode inspired by Danvers Child, Certified Journeyman Farrier! In the second episode tackling horses and their farriers, Sarah and Sara demonstrate what happens with horses with 'clover slobbers,' and when trimming time coincides with turnout and feeding time.
