Nails are an essential part of shoeing a horse and are how a shoe is able to be held onto the horse’s hoof. Horseshoe nails have a sharp tip which allows the nail to be hammered through the horseshoe and into the hoof easily. When nails come loose in a horse hoof or come out, this can cause the shoe to shift or come off which can therefore lead to injury/discomfort for the horses. Checking a horse's shoes daily to ensure they are still securely nailed on, is an important daily activity that should be carried out.
Nails are traditionally made out of steel but more recently copper shoes have been increasingly popular for their antibacterial properties. Antibacterial nails help to prevent fungal and bacterial infections in the hoof and can also promote hoof growth. Although copper nails are not suitable for all horses they can provide some great benefits to other horses.
