Question: Is there a way to tell how old a horseshoe is?

What does it mean when you find an old horseshoe?

Today, they are found only in areas where there is still horseback riding. If you come upon a horseshoe, legend has it that you must spit on it after you pick it up and then hang the horseshoe over your door for good luck. Horseshoes hung over doorways were believed to keep the devil and evil witches away.

Where are you supposed to hang a horseshoe?

Hanging a horseshoe facing upwards in a U shape is said to keep evil out and bring good luck into your home. Conversely, hanging it upside down will have luck flowing out of your home. Whether you believe the legend or not, you have to admit, a lucky horseshoe hanging above a door makes for interesting home decor.

How do wild horses clean their hooves?

Wild horses maintain their hooves by running and walking long distances daily over abrasive terrain. This wears their hooves down naturally, at the same rate that they grow, preventing overgrowing, splitting, or cracking.

How should I wear my horseshoe ring?

A horseshoe ring refers to a ring you wear on your finger that features a horseshoe. The only thing you need to know about wearing this ring is to keep the horseshoe pointing upwards toward your knuckles for good luck; the other way will bring bad luck.
