New Horseshoe Eliminates the Need for Nails

Written by 

A horse’s hooves can suffer damage, especially if they haven’t been toughened up by walking long distances every day. To remedy this, caretakers have traditionally used horseshoes. Unfortunately, these shoes are attached by hammering a nail directly into the horse’s hoof.

A new Kickstarter campaign reveals a more humane way to keep a horse safe. Megasus Horserunners clip onto the horse’s hoof using the company’s patented Mega-Lock Fastener. Not only does the experience eliminate the nail, it is more comfortable for the horse, since it is designed to absorb shock and mimic the animal’s natural movements.

The company exceeded its funding goal, but shipping was delayed from the original December 2016 estimate. In a recent newsletter, Megasus assured backers that the horseshoes were in production and estimated that the first group of shipments would go out at the end of March.

Prices for the horseshoes range from $210 to $285 USD, depending on the options selected. You can pre-order them on the Megasus website, with shipping promised for Spring 2018. However, with so many Kickstarter orders to fill, it might be worthwhile to wait a few weeks after shipping begins to place your order.
