Good Luck for the Easter Bunny: Tiny Hungarian Horseshoes Decorate an Ostrich Egg to Remember

3 April 2010 | Fran Jurga's Hoof Blog at

Notice that these shoes have both clips and heels! (Photo links to a blog on Easter eggs and their colors)

Jozsef Koszpek is an egg farrier. That's right. He shoes eggs. And he does it in a most beautiful way.

This egg is decordated with more than 1000 tiny horseshoes. Nice work, Jozsef!
Hungarian tradition calls for Easter eggs to incorporate horseshoes into the design or pattern. Jozsef has perfected the ancient craft of actually applying tiny horseshoes to the eggs...and elevated it to an art form.
