Cold shoeing

Does anyone know hold the cold shoeing technique is? Looking into the history of horses for history.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Premade horseshoes have been around since the late 13th-early 14th century.

Hot shoeing is actually newer than cold shoeing, having been established as an option for a more custom fit in the early 17th century.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

nail on horse shoes go back to before 400 bc, bronze shoes dated to that era have been found, also a few finds around 500 AD, around 900 AD written references start showing up, and supposedly by 1000ADD cast bronze shoes became common in europe.
Now Hoof boots have a different history and predate shoes quite a bit.
