OF BUFFALO, NEW' YORK.
COMPOSITION HORSESHOE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 717,614, dated January 6, 1903.
Application tiled July 1 9 l 9 OO.
To blt w/tom/ it may concern,.-
Beit known that I, GEORGE JAMES PEA- COCK, of Bualo, county of Erie, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvementin Composition Horseshoes, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, ,forming part of this specification, in which-q Y Figure l is a bottom plan view of my improved shoe. Fig. 2 is a side elevation, partly broken away; and Fig. 3 is a top plan view.
My invention relates to thatclass of horseshoes which are formed, at least in part, of a composition, such as a combination of rubber or analogous material, with a fabric, and is designed to strengthen and ,improve such shoes by providing an improved metal toe# piece, which is secured-in the composition by providing a bar connecting the heel portions of the shoe and by using a separate toe-clip, which is secured to the shoe after it is formed.
In the drawings, 2 represents the toe portion and 3 3 the heel portions of the composition shoe, which is preferably formed in accordance with my copending application, Serial No. 4,345, iiled February 7, 1900, for composition horseshoes, layers of heavy duck or other fabric being used,with layers of ground canvas and rubber between each ply. The shoe is shown with a top layer of canvas 4', which is next to the hoof, and with a central layer 5 in the intermediate part of the shoe, the remainder of the shoe being formed of composition, such as above described.
In forming the shoe into shape by heavy pressure I mold into the shoe a toe-iron 6, which is provided with one or more inwardlyprojecting lugs 7, which are of dovetail shape and hold the toe-iron firmly in place. This iron may be made of dierent lengths, and its legs may be much shorter than those shown.
, These legs S are provided with nail-holes 13,
which extend through the recessed sides of the shoe, and as the toe-iron is made of malleable metal where the longer legs are used the shoe may be bent to fit the hoof and will remain in the shape to which it is bent. The toe-iron is of considerably less thickness than Serial No. 24,157. (No model.)
that of the shoe, so that there is a layer of 'the composition forming a cushion for the hoof.
After the shoe has been formed and pressed to shape with the toe-iron pressed into it and then vulcanized the toe-clip 9 is secured to the shoe by driving theinwardly-projecting tongues or pins 10 l0 into the inner part of the toe portion. This part of the shoe is preferably molded with a recess, of the same thickness as the clip, so that the clip when in place will be flush with the top face of the shoe, and the clip may be further secured by a nail or screw driven through a hole 11 in its body.
For certain purposes, especially for a winter shoe, I preferably provide the molded cross-bar 12, which connects the heel portions and is flush with the bottom face of the shoe, being thinner than the shoe-body and preferably of about one-half its thickness, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 2. This bar will prevent slipping on wet or icy pavements and allows expansion and contraction of the hoof, while preventing it from spreading. The bar being lowered below the top face of the shoe gives thedesired frog-pressure without exerting too strong a force.
` The shoe is provided with molded recesses 13', which extend upwardly for a portion of its thickness and register with the holes in the toe-iron throughout the lengthV of this iron. These molded recesses direct the nails and make easy the application of the shoe to the hoof. A
The advantages of my improved shoe will be apparent to those skilled in the art, since the shoe does not give the extreme frog-pressure of an iron shoe, can be bent to t the hoof, and will remain in place after being fitted. The keys or lugs 7 of the toe-iron hold it firmly in place, and the hoof is cushioned above this iron; The clip is simple and may be easily attached and holds the shoe in place, preventing it from being. forced back on the hoof. The bar at the heel serves to prevent slipping, and where this is used the shoe can be shortened or narrowed at the heel by rasping, there being no metal in the rear of the nails. i

3. A removable toe-clip for composition horseshoes having prongs arranged to be driven into the material of the shoe; substantially as described.
1i. A composition horseshoe having a metal toe-iron secured thereto by lugs Which projeet inwardly beyond the iron, and are embedded in the Composition of the shoe, said toe-iron having outer recessed portions With exposed nail-holes leading into the composition portion of the shoe; substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
