I met Renan Modesto on a trip to South America for my photography book The Farrier, in March 2020. Renan is a vet turned farrier, working in Brazil, whose mentor Kako Moraes is an old friend of mine. I saw him shoeing with Kako while I was there, and he also was an interpreter for a lecture I gave.

We talked about his journey to becoming a farrier in Brazil, farriery schools in the USA, foot mapping, laminitics, and lots more. Renan can be seen shoeing in some of the photos in my new book The Farrier, in my chapter focused on Kako, where he is working at a Quarter Horse farm and Saõ Paulo Riding Club.
