Corey worked for twenty years as a thoroughbred farm manager and recently made a career change, taking up welding.
One night he had a funny vision of making a horse out of old horseshoes, so he decided to give it a try.
"Ralph" is the fourth horse (pictured here) that Corey has made and he notes that there is just something about them that make people smile.
The body of the horse is formed from used horse shoes. The frame is made from used pipe and channel. The mane is steel cable, which Corey painstakingly unwinds. The harness is two old truck bumpers.
Corey uses his trusty Lincoln Electric AC-225 stick welder with AWS E6011 electrode and POWER MIG® 215XT wire feeder welder (current model is POWER MIG® 216) to weld each horse together.
