Horseshoes have long been considered lucky. They were originally made of iron, a material which was believed to ward off evil spirits.
Opinion is divided as to which way up the horseshoe ought to be nailed. Some say the ends should point up, so that the horseshoe catches the luck; others say they should point down, so that the luck is poured upon those entering the home.
