Letters Patent No. 89,096, dated Apr/l 20, 1869.
IMPROVEMENT IN HORSE-SHOES.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and mak-lng part of-the name.
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, J. H. TYLER, of Martin, in the county of Halifax, and State of North Carolina,`have invented new and useful Improvements in Horse-Shoes;
' and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and .exact descliption of the same, reference being:r had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
This invention consists in an improved construction of horse-shoes, of that class which is attached to the foot of the animal by means of a band'passing from the rear end of the shoe around the front of the hoof.
The details of construction will be fully described hereinafter.
Figure 1 represents a front view, and
Figure 2, a side elevation of my improved horseshoe.
In the drawings- A represents the shoe proper, which `is provided with.
the toe-piece a, and side ears b b.
' The toe-piece a, extends upward and rearward at an angle adapted to fit the hoof, and is provided with -the projection a', in which are holes, as shown.
The ears b, upon each side of the shoe, are curved slightly toward each other at b', in order to clasp the hoof. y
They are also provided with depressions, whose depth corresponds with the thickness ofthe band C', the ends of which latter are riveted thereon, as shown. By-this construction, a comparatively smooth surface is made.
The band O is bent in the centre in such manner as to forma socket, c, which slides over the projection a.' upon the toe-piece a.
The socket is provided with a hole, corresponding with the holes in the projection. f
d represents a pin, the end of which' is cleiltand'gy which is intended for the purpose of securing the band in any desired position, by passing through the hole in the socket andthe proper hole in the projection.
From this description, the means of using my shoe will be readily understood. y
The band C having been thrown up, the shoe is slipped on the hoof. The band is then firmly depressed, and sccnredin placeby means of the'pin.
I am well aware that `horseshoes similar to mine have already been patented. I therefore do not desire to make any broad claimfor this device. I simply wish to cover the peculiar construction, which I vbelieve is much simpler, and better adapted for the purpose than any in use.
Having thus fully described my invention,
What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-` The band C, with socket c, in combination with projection a/ of the toe-piece c, when secured substantially as described, and arranged in connection with a horseshoe of the described construction, as set forth'.
This specification, signed and witnessed this 17th day of August, 1868.
J L H. TYLER.
