my first horseshoe bench

I ran out of shoes. I started another thread asking if anyone had shoes that were used to help with my projects. I hope you like it. I still need to build the back rest and 2 arm rests.

Love the bench!
Have you asked your farrier, or local farriers, for old shoes?

I asked my farrier for any old shoes he's pulled, ended up with two buckets full. (free)
Of course some of them were pretty tweeked, but I was able to use most of them anyway....

I have asked my farrier and he has given me some. Its just not enough...lol. I have even called farriers in my area and have not had much luck. I was told shoes that are new are cheap, but a set of 4 wont get me far at all. In reallity I need hundreds to do the projects I am planning to do. Thank you for the comments.

That is amazing! I don't have any shoes to give to you unfortunately or I would! I just have 2 sets - one from each of our mares we have as keepsakes. Silly, I know but I'm a little odd :p

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

That bench is pretty cool...I love anything made from horseshoes!
I plan on making some horseshoe decorations for christmans presents this year..I also used them for decorations at my western wedding.

Sorry I don't have any extras to give you. Some were giving to me and I also got some pretty cheap at a horse auction ...they were in a lot of misc. Tack items.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

That's so cool! I wish I could just take all of the old horseshoes from my BO's barn and give them to you. They're all over on one wall just hanging on the 2x4s.
