You might say Barkley Wike is an iron man. We first met over 10 years ago when I was getting back into horses. He was our farrier. Donna, my first trainer, used to say that Barkley was not only a great farrier but also an artist. After a long career shoeing horses, Barkley finally gave up getting banged up and kicked around by these large animals and started creating original ironworks for friends. Then he turned it into a business and launched B.W. Iron Design. Custom gates, stall doors, chandeliers, furniture, fire screens, pot racks, wine racks, shelves–you name it, he can probably design and build it with iron. If you like, trot on over to www.bwirondesigns.com see what all the fuss is about.
(Hey Barkley, for this nice plug, will you make us some halter hooks for the barn? Need about seven. 😉
