Are You Feeling Lucky?

While hiking the Ryan Road trails with Nik the other day, we came across this old rusty horseshoe someone had hung up on a pine tree. I wonder how long ago it fell off it's owner. I think it needs to be the other way around (ends pointing upward) for luck.

Some people believe that to hang it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container of sorts for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out. Others believe that no matter which way you hang the horseshoe, good luck will come. Let's go for that one!
