Horseshoe ideas?

At our barn, we have a LOT of old horseshoes. During summer camp, the BO had some of us take the nails out of them. She used them as an arts and craft project for the summer camp kids. They'd paint and decorate the shoes, then use it as a picture frame of them riding during the camp.

What other things can you do with old horseshoes? I just brought home two of my horse's shoes and I'm trying to think of something creative...

I have them nailed into a beam in my barn. Just leave half hanging out and it makes a great hook for hanging stuff on. You could do something similar only make it pretty on a small piece of old barn wood.
If you can weld or solder there are tons of stuff you can do with them.
I didn't make this, but it will give you an idea of what you can do.

Wow that's really cool, although I can't weld... However I may know a couple people who can.

I'm having a hard time picturing what you first mentioned though. Could you describe it again? Or maybe post a photo?

I just nail one side to a post so the other half is hanging out as a hook. I'll take the camera to the barn and snap a photo next time I head out.
