Horseshoe Update

In my previous post, I noted I found an old horseshoe. Based in my research, it is a fullered draft horseshoe with heel calks and a toe grab.

This was a shoe for a working draft horse with features in it to add traction (heel calks and toe grab).

The grooves along each side are the fullers. This is an older shoe (modern forged shoes do not have this feature). Pretty cool!

I really need to get a metal detector and work around the barn!
