Why Elio Garni?

In the Middle Ages, blacksmiths and shoeing smiths were frequent healers of horses. Saint Eligius was their patron – a bishop and adviser to the kings of Franks in the 7th century, he was helped by a miracle in shoeing a troubled horse. Through this he became a patron of the healing activity of blacksmiths, which, to some extent, applies to veterinary activities.
