    The Story Behind The Red Horseshoe!!!!!

    Another day @ the beachso here I am metal detecting & here comes along this guy named Larry.He tells me a story about a family,vacationing for a week & they had bought along there Horseshoes,along with other beach toysThe Dad & him were playing the horseshoe & apparently it got lost in the sand they tried there best looking for it in the sand.It was a very special horseshoe,you think you would be able to find it when you see how big it is:
    So they gave up looking because their vacation came to an end.They left HeartbrokenSo Larry shows me the area where they were playing,just a few swings with my P.I. & Red is one of my favorite colors..
    Larry contacted the office & in turn they contacted the guy.Collins which is his name called Larry to find out about his Red Horseshoe,Larry tells him the story on how it was found.I get a call from Collins Thanking me so much & explaining how special this Red Horseshoe is a Heirloom to their family.It is part of a set that has been in the Family from his Grandfather,Father,generation's down it's been in the family from the 40's and how they were so sad when they lost it..When he told me his story it made me cry
    It was so touching to hear his story.I told him Larry & I were a team.It's what we say being @ the right place @ the right time,which we both wereTimes like this is what makes my Hobby-PRICELESS I also have a new friend Larry!! After finding that very special Red Horseshoe,I went about my way along the dry & wet sandSorry Larry & I is a little @ an angle & oh yea,also found that Trojan in the sand,I guess the guy got unlucky,,HH

    Sometimes the items we find might not be worth a lot to collectors, but to someone else, they might be quite valuable Kiana7. You just proved this with a simple horseshoe! Well done and congrats. Gold Nuggets
