    Re: Horse shoe nails and fine forging

    Mick, has Bob ever shown you his piece of the sheath of corn with the field mice? He is a real craftsman and a good bloke to boot, does he still have his old Rolls Royce?

    Re: Horse shoe nails and fine forging

    Feralmetal, you have just reminded me with the corn and field mice. I picked up a few of Bobb's pieces from a show years ago and had them at home for a while. Its taken ages to find these photos, bad as they are but you get an idea of the mans talent,

    The horse stands about 7-8" tall, unfortunately what you can't see is the farrier is reaching up to take a nail that he is holding between his teeth. The rope that is tying up the horse is made from steel and notice the tiny pair of tongs laying on top of the shoe just in front of him.




    This is a door knocker with mice, a bird, a butterfly, ears of corn and corn poppies. About 12 - 14" tall.
