Liberty Hammers

Liberty nailing hammers 
Are currently available in  the 9 oz  weight.  We will soon have them available in three other weight sizes; 6, 7, 8 oz.

The hammers are nicely balanced with a "Weight forward" design that makes the hammer feel heavier than the head weight indicates.  Liberty hammers all have a small magnet built into the handle end for easy pick up of dropped nails.



Shoeing for the Triple Crown

With Nyquist’s win in the Kentucky Derby horse lovers are again thinking Triple Crown.  American Pharoah completed this most difficult feat last year to become the first Triple Crown Champion since Affirmed (1978).

Hoof care for these champions falls to the top Thoroughbred Racehorse horseshoers in the world.  In this video, farrier Steve Norman shoes Gemologist on the morning of the 2012 Kentucky Derby.  The pressure of shoeing a horse with 5 career wins in 7 races and earnings of $794,855 can be daunting.  Steve is confident, careful and relaxed in this video.
