    Default German horse shoes...for big horses

    Here's a few snaps of something a little different. These are some German horse shoes brought over to the Island during the German occupation. The Germans relied heavily on horse drawn equipment and to pull it they used a lot of the large Flemish horses...hense the size of the shoes. You might notice the £1 coin I have put in to help with the scale so you can appreciate that these were BIG horses indeed. I guess the threaded holes were to screw in a sort of stud in icy/snowy areas to give added grip. Whats interesting is that even these were maker marked and dated.
    All the best from Jersey,

    They are known as draft horses in the US.
    Belgians, Clydsdales. There are many different breeds. The Amish folks ( a religious group ) use them a lot. They don't drive cars or tractors or use electricity.
    Draft horses are huge.
