My son’s shop, Black Lion Forge, located in Sweet Hollow, Virginia is a wonderland of photo opportunities. He is a traditional blacksmith and metal artist, and going to his shop is always a treat for me. There’s something primitive about working with fire and iron and beating hot metal to your will that strikes a deep chord in me. These horseshoes will never see the bottom of a horse’s hoof, but they will be transformed into something even more beautiful than they are now…which, after all, is what luck is supposed to accomplish.
