Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

New shoes!

What's a gal to do when she needs new shoes?  Well, for our mare Abby, she whistles up her farrier, and gets a pair carefully custom made.

This is an interesting experience for our guests, many have never watched a farrier at work.  The forge was a fascination.  And two little girls went home clutching the old shoes, all scrubbed clean and ready to be decorated and hung up for luck.

  1. I've never seen anything like this myself, and it's been awhile since I've heard the term farrier.
