The horse snowshoe we have is for the left rear foot. Mr. Pingelo designed and made these shoes for the horses he drove from Beaver to Wiseman, to haul freight for the miners. The horses got used to the shoes rather quickly. He drove double-ended sleds called (double-enders), and wagons in the summertime. He was a natural mechanic. People with boat motors in need of repair brought them to Mr. Pingelo to repair. He came from the coast and settled in Beaver. He was a good story teller. The three holes in the showshoe were to fit over the horse shoe nails in the horse's shoe. Mr. Pingelo is now deceased." Ethnology;
