    This has got to be the most bizarre . . .

    This has got to be the most bizarre horse shoe I've ever seen. And I've found two like this on different farms/CW battlefields. What purpose could this possibly serve?

    Horse shoe made into a boot puller? Hook the hook end over a bar and put the heel in the U section.

    There is also leash, hat, key holders/hook/rack made similar, they are usually smaller than an actual shoe.

    So the horses could climb ladders. Those hooks grab the rungs.

    On a more serious note. I wonder if those could be mantle hangers. We used something marginally similar to hang Christmas stockings. Was the other one you found exactly the same?

    Instead of "bite the bullet"... it was "bite the horseshoe".... while I go get this saw with the big teeth for your leg.

    Wonder if it is a type of strike-a-light. Depending on how big it is the top part could be a handle(?).

    I like the mantle hanger and coat hook suggestions, especially since there are no holes in it like Kreskol said.

    creskol makes a great point. No nail holes. Not a horse shoe.

    Maybe a broken andiron.

    Without additional pictures or a size reference, it's hard to say...

    DCMatt - I should indeed have put something for size reference. It's def horseshoe size (see the second one I found on a different farm somewhat similar with my hand for size) and the second is shaped more like a mule shoe. You can't see the nail holes because I didn't clean them out and about half have the stubs of nails still sticking out of the holes (though very short). I've had horses all my life and I keep three horses for a farrier right now. He is stumped by these two shoes but agrees that they are or were at one time attached to a hoof. See the different shoe I found Tuesday below. (and I stress, found on a different farm and not an exact match.
