The forge is a clean place with places for the tools and a clay floor on which horses are shod. It has an iron roof. The floor is of square shape and very broad. There is only one fire in the forge. Coal is used in it and the fire is blown by a bellows. The bellows is the shape of an egg only flat. It is worked by a stick which is shoved up and down. The smyth uses an anvil, a hammer, a saw for cutting the horses feet, a pincers for pulling the nails out of the horses old shoes.
