The horseshoe, when nailed above a doorway with it’s points facing up, has long been considered a symbol of luck. I’ve been told that the shoe resembles a sort of catcher that collects the luck as it falls out of the sky. It seems as though these old oil drums have been collecting horseshoes for quite some time and if one horseshoe can collect some luck then imagine what a drum full of horseshoes can do! I stumbled upon these “Lucky Drums” while exploring the grounds at one of my sister’s rodeos this past summer. I wish I could have taken one home with me!
