Horseshoes are 4" - 5" high

In popular culture horse shoes represent luck, which is why people place them in the front of their houses or on their cars, or  traditionally printed the horse shoe image on New Years cards.  

The horse shoe is also  the subject of one of Borocz's favorite painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest:  
Bocklin's "The  Centaur at The Black Smith".
