Razer horseshoes are made from tempered tool steel, which allows them to flex with the horse’s foot, allowing natural, barefoot movement and function.
They cannot be heated, but are easily shaped cold on an anvil or stall jack. Overshaping (bring the heels in too much and then have to pull them back out), will weaken the shoes and increase the chance of them breaking at the first nail hole when your horse overreaches or catches himself on something. If you are careful and deliberate with shaping, however, you shouldn’t have any issues.
