    "hardfacing" on a horseshoe...never saw that before, but if ya don't have any new or replacement shoes, I guess it would work! Just about any rod would probably be a little harder than the original shoe steel, which is fairly soft (except for the Mexican shoes made from hard rebar).

    I think I've seen that picture somewhere before...noticed the guy wasn't holding a full size horse. Might be a bit tricky regardless of size if the critter spooks before they mask him/her.

    Wonder where they put the ground clamp?????? That conjures up your imagination!!

    I made a stand to raise the dogs water bowl. The hooks are for some dog tags I had made with their names on it. I made a couple more for their food dishes.

    Nice job guys. That is a heavy bird for sure . As for the water bowl, that might be the right height for those miniature horses.

    Played inside with a few snowmen. Used silverware knife handles for the ties. They are removable.

    This is a cowboy that made way back in Tech school. I used a nail for the pistol, Mig welded several beads of weld, and shaped it with a die grinder.

    Nice bottle holder. Those look like the Diamond Classic shoes like I get from TSC. They are nice to work with too. I wonder if a smaller pony shoe might be better for the glasses. Maybe not if you have big glasses.
