Hi folks,

I'm working on a project that requires a horseshoe object. I went to a farm
supply store to buy a horseshoe to study and there were two kinds available. One
was relatively plain and the other had an interesting heel. So I bought the more
interesting one, knowing it would be much more difficult to model. But the end
result was worth the extra work. I am reminded of why I love POV so much - there
were many difficulties to overcome and problems to solve. I did not know when I
started what exciting adventures in CSG awaited me.

This is the horseshoe I used as a reference:

I fully agree with your feelings about POV. I experience the same. 
Well-done modelling work btw. Now for a nice, worn look, and a bit of rust?

Thank you for the kind words! Alas, great textures have mostly eluded me.
Fortunately this object is intended for a scene (a bumper sticker, specifically)
in which all the objects share the same simple off-white color with default
texture settings. For this particular scene, I believe the saying "Less is more"
holds true. But if I had more talent in that area I agree that the horseshoe
would look better with an authentic rustic texture.

Or you could just model the barn to hang it on :)

Nice shoe.

In another life, I was told that horseshoes had to be hung up with the 
opening upwards, otherwise luck would stream away. How is that in the 
rest of the world? :-)

Yes, if you hang it the other way the luck will run out.
But then we are from the same part of the world.

Since you mentioned it, that does sound like fun! It reminds me of my youth
living on a farm with cows, pigs, and a pony...

Clean, and you're far past the point of diminishing returns, but wouldn't it be
fun to round the stars?

You are right, the stars should be rounded. Originally I thought they should
look like they were stamped after the shoe was removed from the mold but in
retrospect that was a poor decision and I will round the edges of the stars
after all. When I get some free time, that is...
