    Shoes in them selves could be considered a "mod".

    I bet my farrier probably could fit a cold shoe really well but in his words, "I really don't like pounding on cold steel and propane is cheap". He hot shoes everything and gets a great fit out of the shoes, and out of the 5 farriers that come out to our boarding stable to shoe horses, is the only farrier that has never had a client's horse lose a shoe.
    Not loseing shoes may have more to do w/ trim and nailing than "hot fitting". That said, there are farriers that can't trim a foot to save their @ss but can burn a foot to make the shoe fit.

    Would you have me believe there are no platers (race track shoers) that are also good if not great farriers?
