on one side of the boot
This lawn boot would have been put on a pony or donkey's hoof to protect lawns when horse-drawn grass mowers or rollers were used.
It has a thick leather sole with a metal ridge, the upper part is attached by copper rivets.
There is a strap around the top of the boot which would have wrapped around the pastern, originally there would also have been a strap behind the heel.
This was a working tool and there is an old repair
