Horseshoes are one of those symbols that has always held a significance in our family. Growing up in a family that raced quarter horses, elements of the equine life were all around us, and well, anyone who does any kind of racing (or competing in general) knows: you look for luck wherever you can find it!
“Daddy was always big on a lucky horseshoe,” Cheryl said. “Always always right-side-up to catch the luck! Hedy has a horseshoe ring that he gave her when I think she was 16 or so, and she still wears it to this day. It’s just kind of something that’s always symbolized our life; Texas, horses, luck. Taking risks and gambling on ourselves. We still do it every single day with Double D, if you think about it! We’re opening the Fort Worth store on a foundation of hard work, strong faith, and little bit of luck.”
So, naturally, when we come across a horseshoe-shaped anything, it stands out to us. And, as luck would have it (pun intended), right in the midst of our Wild Horses collection, we stumbled upon a handful of horseshoe-shaped vintage footstools!
