An unusual item I've seen made from old horse shoes was a doorstep milk bottle holder, this was at Stanley Nook farm in Aspull, though it was around thirty years ago when milkmen/women were still delivering milk to doorsteps.

Glad to know that the tradition is still going Brian and Marie, I haven't seen or heard of them for years, those electric milk floats did have a very distinctive sound.
