Horseshoe

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

 

Horseshoe

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Love the little poem with it, Bill. However, hang it on the wall (if you find the nail) make sure that the points are up, it will bring you luck!!
Wonderful light and point of focus in this picture.

It seems that Doc Maartens haven't got around to horses yet. If that is a shoe.
Bill Phillips: Yet to see a horse in them Louis
I like the picture and seem to recall the rhyme although it would have been a long time ago I heard it.
Bill Phillips: I seem to recall it has something to do with Richard the third

Dobbin needs this
Bill Phillips: Well he can't have it
I had not thought of that saying for a long time. We are wiser now. I love horse shoes and have a few around here., always pointing up.
