32. Horseshoe Nail. Horseshoe nails are flat on one side & beveled on the other, when shoeing a horse the beveled side of the nail would be driven in whilst facing the Hoof, the flat side faces away from the Hoof, the reason for this is when driving the nail the bevel forces the nail out through the side of the hoof for clenching over, if it were the other way around the nail would enter the horse’s foot and cripple it. THE SHOEING OF ANIMALS SHOULD ALWAYS BE LEFT TO THE PROFESSIONALS.
