I Forge Iron

My first forgings. Horse shoe hoof picks.

Recommended Posts

<a href=02082009198.jpg'>So after around 8 months of creeping up on it I have finally made something. Stole the design off Mike Turner and forged these up from memory of his pics (pun intended). Got a ways to go to match the finish and execution shown by Mr Turner. Took 2 heats to cut and another 5 or 6 to forge the picks.

Comments and critiques are most welcome, and I promise not to get sooky over criticisms. Edited by Mick

They look good Mick. Is there any "rule" for hoof picks? Obviously they have to taper to a point somewhere along the line and be comfortable enough to use for picking foreign objects from a horse's hoof:rolleyes: Do they have or need a sharp edge or just a pointed hook? I have a few shoes lying around but I'm not much of a horse expert.
