  • Description: Classic pattern farrier's box with the lower section for shoeing tools and an upper tray for nails and small implements. The tools include two patterns of shoeing hammers for driving in the nails once the shoe is fitted, an iron working hammer for shaping the shoe to fit the horse's hoof, a hoof knife (T.J. Pope's patent of June 24, 1884), a farrier's rasp (file) used for smoothing and evening a hoof after trimming (modified by the addition of a brass handle probably taken from a Hames finial), hoof nippers for removing hoof growth, and nippers for removing old hoof nails. The open box 131/2" High x 18" long. A really nice set.
