IIT-Kanpur develops new horseshoe

Thursday - August 22, 2019 10:04 am , Category : SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Kanpur, Aug 22 (IANS) The IIT-Kanpur has developed a new type of horseshoe that will have a longer life and save the horses from the excruciating pain they have to undergo while changing them.
The horseshoe that the animal wears gets roughed out within a week, but the owners continue with it for months which adds to the animal's discomfort.
The new horseshoe is supposed to last, at least, for a month.
Rita Singh, convener, Rural Technology Action Group, IIT, said an iron rod -- that is used in house building -- is used to make the horseshoe which has less carbon and thus comes off easily. "In fact, this horseshoe will automatically fall off after a specified period of time," she said.
