PATTEN-SHOE. A horseshoe so called, under which is soldered a sort of half ball of iron, hollow within: it is designed for hip-shot horses, and put upon a sound foot, to the end that the horse not being able to stand upon that foot without pain, may be constrained to support himself upon the lame foot, and so hinder the sinews from shrinking, and the haunches from drying up.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
