Description : This horseshoe was worn by Newfoundland Ponies, whose hooves are generally much smaller than the hooves of other breeds of horses. Also, while the horseshoe has become rusty, some white and green paint can still be seen on it's surface. The metal has been raised at the front and back of the horseshoe, on the side that would be touching the horse's hoof, so that the horseshoe would stay in place. Six holes can also be seen on the horseshoe, so that nails could be used to keep the horseshoe on the horse's hoof.
Commentaires : Most of the horses used in the Bell Island Mines were large draft horses that were brought in from the farms of Nova Scotia. These horses weighed between 1000 to 1200 pounds and were capable of doing heavy work. Some areas of the mines were not big enough for these horses, however, so Newfoundland Ponies were used in those areas of the mine where the ceiling was too low to use the larger horses. Interestingly, many Newfoundland ponies were taken to Nova Scotia to work in the coal mines there, where the mines were too small the larger horses.
Fonctions : This horseshoe and others like it, were nailed to the hooves of the Newfoundland Ponies that were used to pull mine cars in the Bell Island mines.
