chosen the hoof shoes

The right sized shoes were chosen and heated in a gas burner.
The glowing iron is held with a plier against the lower site of the hoof-horn.
With a lot of smoke it singes regulary into the horn and closes tiny openings.
The glowing iron is dropped into a bucket of cold water to cool it down quickly.
