About

About Dr. P.J. Esterline's Hoof Magic

I started building my shop when I was just a teen. I bought my first cross peen hammer (a blacksmith forging hammer for you non-tool people), that I still use and love to this day. It has had many different handles but is the same hammer I bought for $13.00 over 40 years ago. I slowly collected tools, from auctions, flea markets, yard sales, you name it! I was always looking for tools!! I have TONS of them now! My first anvil is still in use as well. It is over 200 years old and was handmade. I bought this from a close friend named Erie Sauder of Sauder furniture fame. He was an avid historian and I owe much of my knowledge to Erie. He gave me books, allowed me to use his blacksmith shop at Sauder Village and introduced me to my blacksmithing mentor.

The forging process is not an easy one nor is it for the faint of heart. The working temperature of the steel is 1500 degrees F! Just get too close to that and you can get a nasty burn without even touching it! At that temperature the steel is in a plastic like state and can be shaped into virtually any shape imaginable! In order to personalize the horseshoes I use special letter dies that can withstand not only the temperature but also the powerful blow from the hammer. Once it is embedded into the steel, there is no way to erase it! It is there forever! I try real hard not to make spelling mistakes! You need a steady hand! Each one is a little different, each one has laid upon my antique anvil and has been struck by my hand with my original hammer. Your shoe is born from history and will make a history of its own just for you!
