Marcel Veart-Smith is now an CFP ASF - Certified Farrier Practitioner, Advanced Skills Farrier.
Marcel would like to thank everyone that has stood by him as friend / farrier. He is definitely one talented farrier and blacksmith! In South Africa this last month 23 people sat the exam 23 people failed. 16 people sat the exam in Australia, only 4 passed the first time. All the other farriers were Australian's.
Marcel has now been asked to be a co-examiner in Australia invited to Chris Gregory's (http://heartlandhorseshoeing.com/) place in America to co-examin to learn to become an examiner, they enjoyed Marcel's enthusiasm and energy (although did ask what his tape worm was as he eats like a horse and doesn't ever gain any weight).
There is much to be said for constantly improving yourself and getting further education in your career and he certainly has and is doing that. He is now going through with an examiner to start doing research and thesis in the aim of doing the AWCF - Associateship of the Worshipful Company of Farriers http://www.wcf.org.uk/
