Blacksmith Mini Pioneer Horseshoe

$ 2.95



This 2″ iron horseshoe is a fun collectible for any age. The pioneers made their own horseshoes by using iron, steel, and fire. They would heat up the metal and then with a hammer bend it until it was perfect. The horseshoe was used to protect the feet of the horses and cattle while working. The pioneer children would often collect the horseshoes that had fallen off the horses and cattle and then would use them for games and activities.

The Nauvoo Blacksmith shop makes beautiful mini horseshoes for children that visit the blacksmith shop.  These mini shoes are made from iron and are a wonderful keepsake reminding youngsters of the days of old Nauvoo. Your order will come with one horseshoe.


President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.

"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."

The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
