Whatever Weds. Horseshoes

Copyright ©2020 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

When ever I spy horseshoes the song I found a Horseshoe pops into my head.

I first learned the song when I was in 5th grade.

I don’t know who wrote it but its earliest known date is 1927. Have you heard it before? It goes like this-

“I found a horseshoe, I found a horseshoe, I picked it and nailed it to the door. And it was rusty and full of nail holes. Good luck twill bring to you for evermore.”

Fun fact: I have an old rusty full of nail holes horseshoe hanging over my front door. I’ve had one hanging over my door since the early 80’s. But I’m not superstitious or anything like that. Okay, I am a bit.🤪

I hope these bring us all some good luck.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

  1. I hadn’t heard that song before. When I traveled throughout Scotland, many homes had horseshoes over their door. Anything for an extra bit of good luck!! 🙂 This is such a great capture, Deborah.

    1. I guess ranchers don’t worry too much about the luck spilling out in the shoeing area of the ranch. 😀 The barn doors had one hanging the right way up for luck though.

      The one hanging over my front door is ready to be filled with up with luck all year. I’ve had a horseshoe over my door since the 80’s.
      I’m glad you like the song and image, Denise! Happy Holiday week!

  2. Hi Deborah, I have never heard about this song. I just finished reading a post about Friday the 13th and luck. Maybe this is a sign I should find a horse and borrow it’s shoe. I always appreciate the good luck.🙂

    1. Oh my, I didn’t know it went back that far! I don’t remember why this song was chosen for our class to learn and sing. I don’t think it was for anything other than music time. Thanks for the link and information!

  3. I never heard of this song, Deborah, but I’m glad you shared it and the photo too. I’d say this is a good time for luck…and you can never have too much of it.

  4. I’ve seen a lot of old horseshoes, but I’ve never heard that song. Just remember that you have to have the horseshoe with the curved part down so the luck doesn’t fall/run out! 🙂


        1. It was one of the best school years I had. It was the first time I had a male teacher and he was so cool!
          We had a piano in our classroom but he couldn’t play it so the other 5th grade class would come to our room for music and that teacher would play the piano for our music time. I loved it! That’s when I started wanting to learn to play the piano.
