A hoof trimmer with a wooden handle and a metal blade that was used by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. On the left side of the handle has writing engraved of "Hoof Trimmer No. 171" and a possible written logo design beside the other name, although it is rather difficult to indicate what it is and what it says. On the bottom of the blade on the right reads "Erik Frost - Mora Sweden". The company Ecko Forge was first found in 1889 by Edward Katzinger, in which the "Ecko" name was shortened to the actual company name of the Edward Katzinger Company. However, Ecko Forge was demolished from its independence in September 1965 and became a division of another large corporation, which was the American Home Products. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.
