Bill Epps was the next demonstrator. Bill is a former farier from Texas.
Horse sculpture from a horse shoe. Bill didn't like this one so after the demonstration he made a couple more for the auction. Bill says he used to make these from the shoes he took off horses and make extra money while shoeing. This says a lot about why Bill got out of the farrier business. He wanted to do more than make shoes!
Tongs by Bill Epps. Bill demonstrated his method for making tongs. He uses a simplified method of his own that is pretty fast. Bill is good but I have yet to see someone make tongs as fast and without compromise as Peter Ross of Williamsburg, VA.
