19th shoe but for the ox

And for our last shoe of the series, I give you the Forged Oxen Shoe. You would have two of these for each foot (one per claw). Bringing the total amount to 8 shoes per ox. Traditionally the ox would be put in a body harness and lifted off of the ground before the blacksmith/farrier would start shoeing.
