I love the pile of old horse shoes...today's discards would be an ugly  pile of old tyres.

I wanted to share this family photo of Robert Wilson with the community. Location: Roxburgh, Central Otago, New Zealand.. Date: 1910.

Wonderful picture, thanks for sharing Mary.

We have a tire shop like you described in our town... blah :(  It even smells of rubber blocks away.

Where I live was once a family horse-farm at least a hundred years ago.  I still have 2 metal shoes that I believe are from some of my gggrandfather's horses :)
