Myself and a friend were digging holes and we can across this awesomely huge old horseshoe. Because it was near the surface of the earth we know it was very recently deposited here - the cans and trash around the rusted steel relic were from the 1970s. There is no evidence of burning on site - but lots of ash has been dumped here. I postulated that the horseshoe found here was bent by a bulldozer which compacted the site in the early 1970s. My friend told me otherwise - he said it was burnt and twisted by fire and this was probably from a glue factory that is still making white glue from animal skeletons today. He did not say which brand. I do not believe him. If that were true and the word got out, I don't think people would buy that brand of glue! I just love horses and it hurts me to think that their lifeless bodies could be reduced to such 'industrial components' after they leave this earth. Please tell me that horses are not still being used to make glue?
