      I've ordered something vaguely similar - wooden, not so cool and mobile (I wish!) shoeing stocks.
      Will see how it goes!
      great as draftie can have ahard time holding those feet up for as long as it takes to shoe - that's a LOT of weight! and one can do other stuff as well once theyre in the stock.
      Or you can get a tilt table - they're led into a shute which when turns htem on their side. One guyd does the front, someone else does the rear, all pretty quick.
      the problem is tha ta lot of drafties get neglected because they can't hold their feet up

            OK, I don't know anything about shoeing, other than when my horse needs it. Can someone tell me the benefit of letting the horse's hoof catch fire from a shoe that is too hot. That's what it looks like in this video. I have watched my horses a bazillion times getting shod (including my current draft X), and have never seen such a thing. The contraption that he shoes the horse on is nice tho.

              We hot shod all our horses but we didn't burn them like that.
              We did burn just enough to mark where there may be a high spot and as they thought to burn shut the tubules in the hoof bottom to keep bacteria from entering there where we just had trimmed.
              I too was wondering about the flames, not a good idea to be catching anything on fire, but I guess they know what they were doing.

              We didn't use stocks, we had a hoof holder and a farrier, that is who was working on the hoof as presented and held by the leg holder.

                Thanks Bluey, I wish I could get my farrier that contraption for when he shoes Ty. Looks very helpful for a big heavy kid.

                  Yeah, I also thought that he held the hot shoe on the hoof too long.

                  I definitely think that when horses get this large (and some larger!) one would need some aids or a device such as this. It's a lot of weight and big hoof!

                    That was something to watch. It takes a very well mannered horse to put them in something like that.

                    My farrier hot shoes my foundered horse. She leaves the shoe on quite awhile to cauterize the whiteline. The smoke has really rolled off my horse's hooves but I never honestly thought the hoof could be caught on fire during the process ---- until I watched this video ---- ho-leee mo-leee that was an eye popper. Bless that Draft for not flinching

                      Portable stocks.



                      So glad the BIG Shire-X gelding I trim is such a good boy. He leaves his hoof in the Hoof Jack Cradle and I grind away with my 4-inch Makita. Granted, those big hooves eat about 1 pad per hoof, but he's done in short order.

                      He holds himself up just fine...no stocks.

                      That was the same with my late 17.3 Percheron. I convinced her she was perfectly capable of balancing on three legs, thank you very much.
