had a lame one today.
Nice job David.
How lame was it?
Just on the nod. Failed a vetting in the week, vet said it could be in the neck It was sound after this.
That's the difference between a farrier and a shoe-hanger .
Encounter a problem and create a solution, on the spot from what you have in the van.
Nice to see you are familiar with G Bars, Tom
Thank you Garry.
This was out hunting,decent horse and was taken straight to the vets !!!! Here I am riding it last year, I wasn't on it when he went lame.
Shoe made today .....
lovely looking shoe, David - immaculate nail hole spacing.
Will you fit without clips or clip it when you fit?
Garry it is clipped at the toe, I fitted it this morning and then made the plate this afternoon , will nail it on Friday. When the foot is unwrapped then they don't want it on the floor, so dressing off and shoe on.
Sorry, didn't see the punch mark in front of the screw hole at the toe.
It would be nice to see pics of it fitted if you can get them
Better get Alex to nail it on then
you can clench up then
No Chris I can't.
he needs a pay rise then so he can buy a new bike
Fitted the shoe today
Nice looking job David. What are we seeing in the last one, with the vet wrap? Thanks.
Rick I just put that on to stop it treading it off.
Wow!!! Is that a square nail? They haven't made those since 1800??? something or other? I can't believe its been in there that long
