I have made a few love birds in the past , usually just trying out different bird shapes with heat shaped wings etc. I had been doing a series of things where I made a surround then filled it with nails and screws and punchings. I decided to do a heart shape and before I could stop it had turned into a bird. It looked too heavy to fly well so I decided it needed a perch and what better base than a horseshoe. Hence the title!
