How do you clean & preserve a horseshoe?
Hi Everyone! Maybe I'm not even on the right forum, and if not, perhaps someone would kindly point me in the right direction. My DH and I built our dream home on 21 acres of what used to border a farm. While building, the builder found an old horse shoe right where our home now sits. He says it's good luck. Now I know you're supposed to display these with the ends up (so the luck doesn't fall out) but I need to get it to "display quality" first. It's in pretty good shape but as you can imagine, rather rusty. Should I clean the rust off? Using what? Should I paint it so it doesn't rust again? Help! I'd love to preserve my little treasure.
