The completed horse shoe:
Yes that is indeed a geniune horse shoe from the farriers! This was a commission on behalf of a friend's friend. I must admit to toiling a little in sourcing the brand new, never used horse shoe! It's been a true labour of love creating this wedding token. However, I would have been delighted to receive something as real and genuine like this on my wedding day but we didn't have the crafters, tools and materials then as we have available nowadays!
