    I closed up the shoes on one and she liked it. One cross I used mule shoes. As you can see they are more of a "U" shape. They're handy for the self balancing wine bottle holders I make.

    Since we have horses....I use up the worn shoes on occasion. These shelve brackets have been popular.

    Is $10 for four shoes a good deal? Thatís what they are at tractor supply near me. Looking to try to make some things to sell for a small profit.

    If you want new shoes for metal art, go to a feed store or farrier supply. My feed store sells them by the pound and it averages out to about $2.25 per shoe. TSC and big box stores ask a lot more for their shoes.

    Old shoes from farriers work just fine, but be aware that often the toes, and sometimes the sides, are worn down to a sharp edge and might not either look good for your work or be a hazard on some projects. And...the old shoes usually need to be cleaned of rust, mud and horse sh!t. I use both old and new, depending on the purpose. With new shoes, you get to pick your size...old shoes you get what the farrier has, but usually free as John T says.

    My local Tractor Supply isn't too bad in pricing on Diamond Shoes. Is there a farrier supplier near you ? Centuar Forge is where I buy all my shoes. They have a first time buyer special, get 10% off first order.

    https://www.centaurforge.com
    Looking through their online catalog isn't the same as seeing in person. The style, thickness, size, and shape available are amazing.
    Reccyled shoes have their place in artwork as do New Clean Shoes. Front and hind shores are different. Getting shoes from a farrier is nice. Remember they need to be cleaned and getting more than a matched pair can be tough. Not the best for some artwork.
    New shoes still need to be cleaned, but,
    You can buy the exact same ones for your projects. It is really nice working with matching shoes. Your projects will look cleaner. I did and do lots of horseshoe artwork. If you need assistance just ask.
    Diamond and St.Croix are best for artwork in my opinion .
    I rarely use anything larger than a number 2.
    Different shoes for different projects.
