Giannis has been working as a farrier since 2002. In 2004, following a conversation with a vet about GAWF’s work he contacted the equine team and accompanied them on a couple of outreach visits so that his skills could be tested.
 
Following this he was offered the chance, through GAWF funding, to qualify as a farrier and thus became a member of the Equine Project where he remains up to now. Today he shares his time between being a professional farrier and a farrier for all the working equines all around Greece through GAWF’s project.
