5th shoe of December

The horse shoe for today is pretty weird looking. But before we get to that, I am going to talk about how to hang your horse shoe for good luck. While working with Mike Carson in the blacksmith booth at many a fair we would get this question very often. What it comes down to is if you are Greedy or Generous.

Since today is Christmas eve I will talk about the greedy option. If you are feeling greedy and want to horde your luck, you would mount your horseshoe above a doorway with the opening pointing up "U". This way all of your luck is contained for you in the horseshoe.

Tomorrow I will talk about how to mount the horseshoe for all you generous people out there.

Now back to the shoe of the day, this is a horseshoe for a Stifled horse. This shoe will help in preventing the horse's leg from locking up.
