Farrier gets a month-long ban.

A FARRIER was banned for working for a month by watchdogs after his son was allowed to work on a horse.

Simon Heslop, 52, of Ebchester, County Durham, has been suspended from the profession by its regulatory body after he let his son William, 20, take a horse's shoes off.

The farrier, of St Ebba's Way, said he knew he had done wrong but criticised the decision to deprive him of work for a month. He said: "There is at least a dozen unregulated farriers in my area, in the Newcastle area. There are unregistered farriers caught and they have been fined less than what our registration fee is of pounds 150-a-year.

"But it is one of those things, you cannot cry over spilt milk, you have just to take it on the chin." Mr Heslop had never previously been disciplined by the Farriers' Registration Council.
