Farrier's box

This farrier's box has three compartments with a steel carrying handle. Farriers have historically cared for a horse's hooves. The farrier also applies horseshoes. He or she would carry this box full of equipment such as pincers, hammers and horseshoes to each of the horse's legs.

Dimensions: 12cm x 40.8cm x 19.6cm

Did you know?
Farriers must be certified to shoe horses. A Farrier is simply a blacksmith who specialises in the shoeing of horses.

When done correctly, the act of shoeing should cause the animal no pain, and often prevents too much wear and damage to the horse's hooves.
