Even though a Western Blacksmith’s work was never done, downtimes sometimes called for a little creative departure from the norm. Blacksmiths thought up creative uses for horseshoes that were a bit different than just shoeing horses. From designing coat racks to building household decor, one use was creating mind challenging Horseshoe Puzzles. From Double Horseshoe puzzles, the idea for a Triple Horseshoe was formulated. These are fun to play with, and create a great piece of coffee table trivia.

If you know somebody that’s recently moved into a new home, it’s perfect timing, because summer is finally upon us. This means that by the time they are unpacked and ready to host a housewarming party, it’s sure to be sunny and clear weather. This is ideal for hosting an outdoor BBQ or potlatch style dinner.

If you’re looking for a fun and unique housewarming gift, consider buying them a horseshoe game set. Especially if they have children, this will be a fun and wholesome way for those kids to enjoy their summer vacation outside. And if the day does turn out to be sunny, the horseshoe game can be brought out immediately and used to entertain all the guests.

Don’t Get Bent Out of Shape over Damaged Horseshoe Stakes!

After several years of playing horseshoes, it’s very likely that your stakes have seen better days. After all, they have to withstand a lot of dings and nicks as well as frequent relocations. All of these activities can leave the stakes looking a bit bent out of shape, literally!

But you don’t have to buy an entirely new horseshoe set just because your stakes are looking a little haggard. Rather, just look into replacement horseshoe stakes. This way, you only have to spend a little bit of money rather than shelling out for an entirely new set. It also cuts down on unnecessary waste, since your horseshoes are likely still in good working order.
