What is borium and what does it have to do with horses?

Borium is an artificially created substance - it's tungsten carbide granules embedded in a steel or brass rod.

Borium is added to horseshoes, either in the form of small studs or as a line around the front edge. It's used on horses that work on the road a lot to improve traction and reduce shoe wear.
