Great idea, and I like the clouds in the background.

I'd have liked to have been able to see the horse's head/face and also all of the hind feet - I feel that where they are cut off/cropped is awkward. Having the head/neck with similar lighting to the rest of the image might have helped.

OR, based on the title, shot/cropped in MUCH closer on the hoof being worked so the emphasis is consistant with the title.

I am finding that my eye drifts, trying to find the focal point of the image - I'm drawn to each of the white socks

Beauty and story and the kind of black and white that sends me.

Like the idea – B&W also works well. Not so sure about the man’s pose and expression – he does not appear very much interested in “new shoes” for the horse.

a little more light would help to give contrast

beautiful horse. just to be picky, the flash in front seems unnatural.

Very nice. I really like the contrast between the light at the bottom and the dark ominous looking sky.

bet that farrier is hoping the lights don't spook the horse! 8

There's something about this that looks surreal. Maybe it's the fill lighting that does it and that dark cloudy sky. Lovely big horse. Looks like a Percheron cross.

An excellent shot, well done for going black and white with this one, brings an edgy moodiness to the whole shot. 10

Brilliant. A different take on the challenge. Top 10 I hope.

Too bad you couldn't have made the horse look towards the camera. Lighting seems a little underexposed.
