Good Luck at RBF
Merry Christmas from Red Bucket Farm! We received a pair of old, worn-out horse shoes as part of a white elephant gift exchange. I was reminded to hang them correctly, and so conducted a small amount of internet research. I learned that horse shoes are considered lucky in various parts of the world. Some traditions maintain that the shoes must be displayed with the u-shape facing up so that the luck will stay inside; others believe that the shoes should point down to allow the luck to flow out on the people passing by. Either way, we thought the shoes would make a fun addition to the sunshine shed on our little urban farm. Perhaps they'll bring good luck for the new year?
