These horseshoes have been worn by show-winning Icelandic horses bred by a top breeding farm in Hella (sounds like 'Hetla'). This is in the southern part of the country.
The farm is run by Ásta Olafsdottir and she takes great pride in caring for the 70 horses under her ownership.
At Hidden People, we felt that the used horse shoes were far too special to ignore and we therefore arranged with Ásta for a local blacksmith to create something really unique and special from them. He therefore cleaned the shoes, applied extreme heat and skillfully hammered them into linked heart shapes. They were then finished with a polish and Ásta made the hanging rope from horse hair.
These are extremely unique and special gifts and a lot of craftsmanship has gone into them.
They come with a picture of the horses from Ásta's farm that contributed to their making!
