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?

For all your farrier needs, GET BNT!
