Can I use my own horse’s shoes?

Yes indeed you can use your own horse’s shoes. Just select the option from the drop down menu. There is a small charge for using your own shoes as this covers us unpacking, booking in your shoes, labelling them, bagging them individually and dropping you an email to let you know they have arrived safely.

Likewise, if you do not have your own shoes to use, we can use some of our own used stock of shoes. If you would like to give us detail of the horse or pony whose horsehair braid we are setting within the shoes, such as their breed and height, we can do our best to select shoes that reflect that.

 

How much horsehair do I need?

Generally for a two braids, one either side of the heart we need a 40cm length of tail hair about a pencil width thickness. If you would like to have both sides of each heart braided please double the required amount of hair.

 

My horseshoes are rusty, does this matter?

Not at all! We heat and clean every shoe by hand first, before forging. This process alone removes rust. Your shoes will then be hand forged into a heart shape. nothing is cut away, one whole shoe makes one whole heart.

 

Can I use hair and shoes from more than one horse?

Most definitely you can. The Linked Pair of Hearts in the image with both sides of each heart braided are from two different ponies. They also use tail hair from each different pony too.

Please make sure, if you are sending shoes and/or hair from more than one horse you label each clearly as to whose shoe and hair is whose.
