Surgical Horseshoe https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/post-medieval-to-modern/horseshoes/surgical-horseshoe-14527.html Sun, 03 Aug 2008 00:00:00 GMT Horseshoes Surgical Horseshoe  
Description: A surgical horseshoe for treating laminitis (inflammation of the laminated tissue that attaches the hoof to the foot). It is oval with three raised sections for hoof support, and the right and left-hand sides have three and four visible nail holes, respectively. The large size suggests it was for a shire type horse. Note Blacksmiths also used to "fire weld" used long horseshoes into this shape for use in the game of quoits! The UKDFD is grateful to Doug Bradbury for help with the identification and dating of this shoe.

Description: A 'tongue' type horseshoe of circa 1700-1815. It has eight well defined square countersunk nail holes, two with nails in situ. The calkins are tapered and turned under, and there is no evidence of fullering (as often found on later shoes). It is probably a riding shoe of the early 18th century.
