I put this video I shot on Friday up, here on my blog, thinking there may be people around the world that might find this tool useful.. It's not related to my artwork, but thought you might find it interesting.
The Shoe-TRU™ magnetic toe clip, http://www.shoetru.com, allows you to keep the toe of the shoe in-line with the toe of the hoof until the first two nails are set. Then, simply push it forward and remove.
If you are using a natural balance shoe or just want to hold the shoe slightly back then place the toe-clip in the 10 o'clock position. This still stabilizes the shoe and you can see the extended toe at the same time.
A real asset when shoeing colts, un-mannered or sore-footed horses. or when you're just plain tired and don't want to settle for less than a shoe in perfect toe/heel alignment.
