PAD.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 757,475, dated April 19, 1904.

Application filed September 1, 1903.

To all whom it may concern.-

Beit known that I, ELMER E. LEMON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Millersburg, in the county of Holmes and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hoof-Pads; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full,clear,and exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, in which Figure 1 is a view showing the bottom of a horses foot and illustrating my improved pad on line 00 m, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a detached view of the pad proper, showing the top or upper side thereof.

The present invention has relation to hoofpads; and it consists in the novel construction hereinafter described,and particularly pointed out in the claim.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the draw- 1ngs.

In the accompanying drawings, 1 represents the pad proper, which pad is formed of sheet metal and of a thickness sufficient to protect the sole of the foot and at the same time form a support for the sole for the purpose hereinafter described.

The pad 1 is provided with the V-shaped opening 2, which opening is located so that the frog of the foot is exposed, as illustrated For the purpose of properly protecting the frog upon its sides the pad 1 is provided with the upward-curved flanges 3, which upwardcurved flanges are shaped to properly fit the surfaces against which they come in contact.

The pad 1 is held in proper position upon the foot by means of the shoe 4, which shoe overlaps the bottom of the pad a suflicient distance to properly clamp or bind the pad 1 between the top of the shoe 4 and the hoof or sole of the foot- The pad 1 is formed of such a size that it will not extend over the nail-holes 5, formed in the shoe 4:, nor will the nails 6 pass through the pad 1, this feature being clearly illustrated It will be understood that by my peculiar Serial No. 171,537. (No model.)

arrangement the pad is not secured to the sole of the foot by means of nails passing through said pad; but of course the nails which hold the shoe securely to the hoof will at the same time bind or clamp the pad, and thereby securely hold the pad 1.

It will be understood that a sufficient amount of air will be permitted to find its way between the sole of the foot and the pad to prevent any decay of the sole and at the same time not interfere with the circulation of the life-carrying liquids to the frog and to the sole.

The pad 1 formed as shown covers the surface of the sole, and a metal surface is exposed, thereby preventing gravel or any foreign substance from finding its way between the sole" and the pad, owing to the fact that said pad is provided with the curved portions 3, which curved portions are located against the frog in such a manner that the frog will close the space between the curved flanges and said frog.

Another advantageis that it prevents what is known as drop-sole, and at the same time snow-balls or clogs will not gather or adhere to the foot.

The pad can be worn for some time without injury, thereby saving the necessity of frequently removing the shoe.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

As an improved article of manufacture, a hoof-pad formed of a single piece of sheet metal, and provided with a V-shaped opening extending slightly beyond the frog, the edges of said V-shaped opening provided with upturned flanges, said flanges curved to fit the adjacent surface of the frog, the pad formed of a size adapted to be clamped at its edges between the hoof and shoe, and located entirely within the line of the shoe-attaching nails, substantially as specified.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.

ELMER E. LEMON.
