Nail pullers are specialised tools used by farriers and horse owners to remove horseshoe nails from a horse’s hoof. They are designed to grip the nail and pull it out of the hoof without causing damage or injury to the hoof wall or the horse’s leg.
Using a nail puller requires skill and care as removing a nail improperly can cause damage to the hoof and potentially injure the horse. It is important to choose the right type of nail puller for the job and to work slowly and carefully when removing nails from the hoof. If you’re not experienced with using a nail puller, it’s best to work with a professional farrier or veterinarian who can help guide you through the process.
A shoe puller is a tool used by farriers to remove horseshoes from a horse’s hooves. It is designed to fit around the horseshoe, providing leverage to remove the shoe without causing damage to the hoof.
The shoe puller consists of two long handles with a hinge in the middle. The end of each handle is shaped like a half circle, with a rounded edge that fits snugly around the outside of the horseshoe. The farrier places the rounded edge of the shoe puller around the edge of the shoe, then applies pressure to the handles to open the hinge and grip the shoe. With a twisting motion, the shoe puller is used to loosen the nails holding the shoe in place and then pull the shoe off the hoof.
Shoe pullers come in various sizes and styles, depending on the size and type of horse being worked on, and the type of horseshoe being removed. They are an essential tool in the farrier’s toolkit, allowing for safe and effective removal of horseshoes without causing discomfort or injury to the horse.
