Never heard of aluminum horseshoes, but then I am not a horseman. I will inquire of a horsewoman of my acquaintance.

When they completed the Washington Monument in 1884, the very tip of the obelisk was 100 ounces of aluminum, then more costly than gold because of the elaborate chemical refining process of the day. Not going to be any aluminum horseshoes in the 1880s.
