From Gnik_LJN :

This short's timing was almost as sharp as any MGM cartoon of the same time. The horse shoe fights got absolutely crazy and even though this short recycled "Shoein' Hosses", gags seem fresh in this short. This was an amazing upgrade from the short it recycled from, quite unusual seeing how people tend to think "Famous Studios + recycled short plotline = PAINFUL CARTOON".
