In this picture, a farrier is working on a horse that is restrained in stocks.  The stocks provide a safe way to restrict the horse’s movement while a farrier or vet is working on the horse.  The horse has covered chains under its barrel and across its back to prevent it from laying down or rearing up and hurting itself or its handlers.  The inside surfaces of the stocks are padded so the horse does not hurt itself by leaning on or bumping into the sides.
