TROU­BLE AFOOT

EQUUS - - Hands On -

This past sum­mer, I kept my vis­it­ing non-horsey nephew busy with a me­tal de­tec­tor. I said I’d pay him 50 cents for ev­ery piece of me­tal he found in the pas­ture and around the barn. The $8 I ended up spend­ing was worth it as he found two old horse­shoes and mul­ti­ple nails and con­struc­tion screws that could have ended up lodged in my horse’s hooves.— Michelle Hart­ley, Winns­boro, South Carolina
