 Swamp Shoes 

I saw the photo of the marsh shoes in the August 2013 issue of Farm Collector. I have two sets of what they call “swamp” shoes that I bought in 1961 in Portage, Wis. All I know about them is they used them on the horses’ front hooves in the swamps of Ohio. How old do you think they are?
