Fitting horseshoes at arabbers' stable in Baltimore | PHOTOS
Farrier Sean Losee of Mount Airy uses the "hot shoe" method to fit horseshoes, traveling to stables with a truck outfitted with a gas forge, 100-lb. anvil, grinding wheel, and the tools and supplies of the trade. He volunteered his time to shoe two arabber's horses at the Carlton Street Stables in West Baltimore. The stables, used by arabbers since 1912, date back to the 19th century and are a designated Baltimore City Landmark.
