I think it gave around a 20 signal on the Equinox and it was found in a stubble field recently.
I think it's possibly copper/copper alloy and to me it looks fairly modern, but I don't know what it is. Could it be from, perhaps some farming machinery?
Thanks for any info.

These days they buy ‘blanks’ and just hammer them to the correct shape for the individual horse. I believe they still learn how to make them, more or less, from scratch as part of their training.
Only a guess though. I remember seeing it done a long time ago but didn’t take too much notice. Just one of the many bits of useless info tucked away at the back of the filing cabinet.
Although, looking at it again, it could have been part of something that had moving bits that caused the depression.??
