I want to polish and mount one of my daughter's horse shoes (or rather daughter's horse's shoes?)for her wedding later this year but cannot decide which way up to mount it.
My farrier insists it should be open end down, same as horse brasses are hung on the leather straps, which allows the luck within to enter the room. Most other people I have asked say open end up to keep the luck from falling out, which makes sense too.
Am tending to go with farrier and horse brass people as being based on centuries of horsey knowledge, but scared to get to wrong and bring bad luck to my daughter and her fiance!
Not really that superstitious BUT........?
All input welcomed!
Thanks, and good luck to all, Angie
