Blacksmith in Kashgar

Keeping your horse on the road presents as many issues in Kashgar as we might have getting our cars repaired. Roadside blacksmiths are abundant, no doubt as they were in the West over 100 years ago. I had not come across this type of strange apparatus before, but I can see the logic of it; the horse did not appear unduly fretful, so I assume horses are used to it.
