    Horse shoe?!

    Found this here on Jupiter beach a few weeks back. Is there a possibility this could be from a Spanish ship? I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t last that long in the water, but I’m hopeful . Click image for larger version.

    It looks awfully small. Perhaps a burro? Great find! Congrats!

    Thats a horseshoe, probably from a pony or something. It looks pretty old by the looks of it. Id say 1800s, possibly early 1900s, for sure.
