CaliforniaOkie Posted August 15, 2016 Share Posted August 15, 2016 (edited) Sorry if I'm asking a question that's already been answered. I am literally starting today. On my last trip to California, I talked my dads ferrier out of some horseshoes his apprentice had messed up on the cheap. I have an old fire pit I converted into a forge by lining with firebrick and adding a blower. I have hardwood for fuel. I want to know if I will be able to straighten one of the horseshoes with my cheap little setup, or am I just spinning my wheels? Should I see if I can get coal instead of using hardwood? Is horseshoe iron a decent material to practice on? Thanks for any advice, and sorry once again if I'm covering old ground. Edited August 15, 2016 by CaliforniaOkie Spelling.
