Traditionally, used horseshoes are believed to be full of luck, and depending on your point of view can be hung upwards to keep the luck in, or pointing downwards to let the luck drip out. I am happy to paint your personalised ‘shoe either way! Every horseshoe comes from the horse via the farrier and are scrubbed, cleaned, de-nailed, holes cleaned, sanded, painted with 2 coats of undercoat, and 2 coats of top coat before I add the miniature decoration. Once decorated all my ‘shoes are finished with a coat of clear external varnish. Prices start at £15 for up to three words, £20 for up to 7 words. Please remember space is limited and small and although I am happy to consider all requests sometimes your wording might not fit. Postage is an additional £3 or free collection when I am trading from Pea Green
This summer there I have been busy painting wedding horseshoes. They make a lovely and unusual gift for the couple. Wedding horseshoes have been painted with a cream background. I now complete the wording with gold paint, highlighted with white.
House name horseshoe
You don’t have to own a boat to have a horseshoe. Regular visitors to Welford commissioned me to paint a sunny shoe for their Sunbeam cottage.
