Draft (work) horses like Clydes and Percherons will have feet close to the size of a dinner plate. And if they are really working, logging, plowing etc, will often have very aggressive spikes or ‘corks’, either fixed or threaded into the shoe.

Sometimes horses will only have front shoes, in case they kick out at other horses. Without the shoes on the rear they’ll do less damage.

Matt, if you want it shiny, polish it then clear coar it right away, before it can oxidize again.

Nice work, and a nice tribute.
