Re: [RC] Tevis, Eastern Horses - Truman Prevatt

It probably depends on the AL alloy used. I would think AL would work also. It is difficult to get AL shoes to spark. I remember the OD my first year. The old start was over Skyline Drive. The climb was up a old rocky - a lot of flint rock - trail in the dark. You got to the top and crossed Skyline Drive about sun up. I remember seeing sparks fly everywhere going up that trail in the dark. A very dry forest bed, a dry leaf and a little breeze could have caused a fire.

I have no idea. Our neighbor just told me the story. It's softer than steel, so maybe it holds up as well as aluminum. Although I would think aluminum is softer, but I don't know for sure.

    Boy I've seen this on the trail on also with the Orange County
    Mounted Patrol when they are on the streets. How do the copper
    shoes hold up?
