In today's episode we talk to Cliff Carroll of Larkspur, Colorado. Cliff Carroll is well known today for his anvils and forges that he manufactures and sells at his shop in Larkspur. Cliff shod horses for many years in Canada, Florida and Colorado. He certified with the Journeyman’s Union on the race track in Florida where he shod race horses for many years. He worked on several high caliber horses, some of which even raced in high stakes races including the Kentucky Derby.

In 1981, he moved from Florida to Colorado to start his supply shop and began to manufacture tools. His 70 pound anvil is a big seller and popular with farriers for its light weight, wide face, narrow rounded heel, and turning cams on the side near the trunk of the anvil. He also sells a 125 pound anvil for heavier horseshoe shaping and a 35 pound anvil that is popular with leather workers and jewelers. He also sells forges, anvil stands and assorted other tools.
