Paint Your Horseshoes

I learned this tip from reading an article about Dean McLauglin a long time ago. Whenever things were not going well he would paint his horseshoes. It accomplished two things. When a horseshoe is panted it gives it a different feel which might help you get out of the slump, but more importantly it will allow you to follow your horseshoe in the air and possibly determine what is going wrong. I will add one other benefit for painting your horseshoes the paint acts like a shock absorber when hitting the stake. You will have less bounce-offs and your horseshoes will most likely last longer if always kept with a nice layer of paint on them. (spray can no, brush yes) Oh and if you live in town the neighbors might appreciate the reduced noise from your painted pair of horseshoes.
