recycle your old horseshoes to me

hi everyone. My name is Loola. I have been tinkering around with some art and sculptures using old horseshoes. I just have a really hard time keeping a stockpile of material. I know lots of horse owners and farriers just leave old shoes behind and would like to use them in my projects. I live in south florida and would pay shipping for your old shoes plus whatever you think is fair in price if not free. Or maybe you are a hop skip and jump away. Anyway thank you for reading this. I am in the middle of a project bench and am out of shoes. I still need to make the back rest and 2 arm rests. If I can figure out pics on here I will post a image. Thanks again, Loola

Truth is meaningless in the absence of understanding.

You know you can just go buy shoes, right? You don't have to wait until someone's throwing them out.

Tractor Supply has horse shoes. They're not expensive. Plus, they're new and not all rusty and beat up like the used shoes.

Yes - paying to have used shoes shipped to you would be VERY expensive. The box weight would add up in a hurry.

Speed was giving you one example. Check out farrier supply centers. Put an ad on craigslist, ask your local tack shop or feed store if you can place a bin . . .

Also, contact your local farriers. They might be willing to drop them off at your place when you are in the area.

Your bench is really cool.
