Forge & Farrier, For Farriers

Richard Ellis DipWCF (Hons)

Richard 'Iceman' Ellis DipWCF (Hons)

After bravely battling such a cruel and indiscriminate disease, Richard sadly passed away yesterday surrounded by his family.

Any farrier who has had the privilege of working with him, watching him, been taught by him or been judged by him will be mourning his loss as a friend, a peer and an exceptionally talented man.

On a personal note we would like to thank Richard for his support, encouragement and advice - he was the first person we spoke to when the idea for Forge & Farrier came about.

Rest in Peace Richard, a true gentleman, we will miss you.


Please note (18.12.12) -

The funeral for Richard Ellis will be held at the end of the week and will be for close family only.
A memorial service for all those wishing to pay their respects will be held in the New Year. We will post details as soon as they are confirmed.
Thank you for your understanding and for respecting the family's wishes at this very difficult time.
