Need Help Identifiying Regiment, Please

I purchased this photograph from an antiques fair yesterday. Can anybody identify the soldier's rank and regiment from his uniform and cap badge? Am I right in thinking he might have been a farrier? Many thanks.

His cap badge is the Royal Engineers.

He also seems to have a horseshoe above his sergeant stripes (and grenade) that would seem to confirm that he was a Farrier Sergeant.

The spurs also strongly suggest that he works with horses!

Thanks, Steve. I appreciate your prompt reply. I had a feeling that he might have been a farrier but didn't connect that with the Royal Engineers.
