When I was growing up in Iowa we spent plenty of time on farms. I guess our culture was that of Country people , we knew finding a horse shoe was good luck . Now a day's our culture is more urban in nature and kid's wouldn't know a horse shoe if they sat on one , let alone that it was good luck. (And having a rabbit foot key chain today might get you 36 months in prison for animal abuse) . Calder Race Course ( a local horse track) mucks/cleans the horse stalls and ships the refuse to local farms to help farmers build soil, every year I get 500 cu yards and in the I find dozens of horse shoes .Cultural views of luck vary from perceiving luck as a matter of random chance to attributing to luck explanations of faith or superstition. For example, the Romans believed in the embodiment of luck as the goddess Fortuna, while the philosopher Daniel Dennett believes that "luck is mere luck" rather than a property of a person or thing.
Lucky symbols are popular worldwide and take many forms. The only thing I believe is that the harder I work the "Luckier" I get. and the key to happiness is being grateful .( and that ain't no horse shit)
