    Oxen Shoes

    Hello Forum,

    Iíve been detecting a site that was a colonial homestead, and I found these oxen shoes. Iíve found many horse shoes over the years but never oxen shoes. Thanks for looking!

    Those are a good sign you are at an old site. Deep ox shoes can sound pretty good. I would work that site hard.

    Cool! Definitely keep at that site. Last Ox shoe for me then produced an 1889 Seated dime.

    Oxen were like the bull dozers / tractor trailers of the olde days because the were strong, hearty and could deal with the east coast climate better than other animals. In the few years I've been detecting I've probably found 70 of these in various spots. It's always a sign of older farm activity. I've only found a handful of horseshoes which I would think I'd find more.

    Old Ox shoes like that can sound really good and are indicative of the fact that you are on an old site as others have stated. Keep working that site, there’s more good finds there!
