More Sanding of Horseshoes & Ankles

Back from a six-day business trip, I had a chance to do a little work on the shoulders and curved ankles.

I picked up where I left off, and started sanding the horseshoes, beginning with 150-grit sand paper, to knock down the high spots.

That was followed by a round of sanding with 400-grit sand paper, which is my finish-sanding step.

The edges on the horseshoes are very smooth, I think they are done. The front faces may need a bit of work still, due to the alignment dowels. We'll see. As for the curved ankles, I'll spray some primer on them and see how they look.

Don't forget to ask Matthew about digging out those dowels. I have "buttons" in my paint on my shoulders. They didn't go away even though I covered them with evercoat and 492 cans of primer !

Right you are Russell. I think you or someone mentioned drilling a hole larger than 1/2" and then feather filling/sanding.
