Clearly, if you are looking for a horseshoe Springfield Illinois is the place to be.  However, the horseshoe can be found in many surrounding communities as well.  The further you get from Springfield the less likely you are to find a restaurant selling horseshoes.  This limitation doesn’t apply to horseshoe lovers though.   Throughout the US, former residents of Springfield are making horseshoes in their own homes and sharing them with friends and neighbors, most of whom probably think they are crazy.  They think that until the first bite at least.  If you are reading this and have an interesting story about spreading the horseshoe news around, please comment.  We’d love to hear your story.
