Horse Shoes have been used for years in furniture, shelving, hooks and general decor. Horse Shoes are recyclable and reusable, so don’t throw them in the trash! Farriers and blacksmiths and scrap dealers will take them back or even pay money!

- In 2007 about 2,087,000 Household owned a horse.
- Approximately 9.2 Million horses in the USA.
- Number of unwanted horses = 6-19 Million.
- If the USA has to care for tens of thousands of unwanted horses a year, it won’t be long before the public will be forced to foot the bill for a half-million horse herd at $2,400 a horse per year.
- Polls show that more of the 80% of the American People are opposed to horse slaughter, but each week more than 1,400 horses are still being slaughtered to be served as a delicacy in upscale restaurants overseas
- As of February of 2007, the BLM estimated that there were 28,500 wild horses and burros on lands that they managed. It is likely that there are fewer than 25,000 horses and fewer than 5000 burros left on 34 million acres of public land managed by the BLM.
