As quoted by David: “I tracked Jimmy down in Hertfordshire where he still works in an original forge with bellow and a real fire. To complete the painting, Jimmy also found Harry the horse who lived nearby. All the time Jimmy was working, his labours were keenly observed by his two Jack Russell terriers who were actually behaving themselves for once. Again, featuring a more romantic age when horses were shod in a forge with the bellows and the roaring hot flames of the fire. I sketched it in what was then a working forge near Bishop’s Stortford in Essex which I fear has now closed down. What a pity because these are shining examples to show to children of how things used to operate – perhaps more slowly but also often more efficiently.’
