Hello,

I called it hoof shoe because I'm thinking it was made for a donkey? That is what I was told also.
3 X4 inches is all it measures,

Guido.

small mule shoe. as for the 6 nail holes, if a horse has decent feet and the farrier is a decent farrier 6 nails are enough. keg shoes come with 8 and that allows nails to be placed where you need them or where good wall is available. when I made handmades I seldom punched more than 6 cause I could place the holes where I wanted them. anyway, it's a neat shoe

I would guess that it is a donkey or small mule shoe. Many of them would not have had as many nails either. The hard area of a donkey or small mule is not as large as a small horse would be.

GUIDO I do not know where you are located but I have seen donkeys shod where they where used in rocky areas in mining.

Hello JD Seller,

Donkeys in the old country where best of burden, and they were always used in all kinds of terrains, that is why the were fitted with shoes,

Guido.

That is a small mule shoe. The unusual thing is it has six nail holes. Some farriers only put in six nails in riding horse shoes to keep down hoof wear although the shoe may have eight holes. I wish JD Seller was here.

Back when My uncle worked his donkey he put shoes on it. It only stood just over 4 ft. high and that shoe is about the right size.

It was probably a mule shoe,I don't think many donkeys were ever shod or used much for heavy work like mules were.

Hello Mike Groom,

I thought that mules were as big as horse as far as hoof size? The size of the shoe is only 3 in across and 4 in. the other way. But I'm no expert hence the question,

Guido.
