The Decorative Concho with Barbed Shanks for Horse Hoof is a decorative medallion for a horses hoof that can be applied easily without the aid of a farrier.
Inventor Dexter Ross Fawcett, a farrier from Vanderhoof, BC has created a decorative medallion for a horses hoof that can be easily applied.
Concho style medallions are a common sight on show horses across the world. These medallions come in a wide variety of styles, and can even include decorative elements such as stones, jewels, shell work, and other eye-catching materials. They work to emphasize the moving parts of the horse. However, incorrect application can lead to hoof damage, infection, or other problems. This requirement means that these medallions are out of reach for the typical horse owner. Inventor Fawcett has created a means by which Concho style medallions can be easily applied to a horses hoof.
This clever new invention has a novel appearance. It will not cause injury. It utilizes rearward facing barbs that are driven into a horses hoof. The base structure is pliable and conforms to the curved surface of each individual hoof. It simply sets into position and a user gently taps with a mallet to apply. The use of the Decorative Concho with Barbed Shanks for Horse Hoof allows for the display of a decorative medallion on a horses hoof, in a manner which is quick, easy, and effective.
