Lawn Boot

The Lawn boots were made of leather and used when the horses pulled the lawn mowers. Of course indents caused by the iron shoes would have ruined the lawn and so these boots were available to put on the ponies feet and protect the lawn. There is an example of a horse drawn own mower in an online museum dedicated to Lawn Mowers.
