It measures approximately 4-3/4 inches long by 2-1/2 inches wide and weighs 0.308 lbs. It is fashioned in the shape of a horseshoe with painted poinsettias and an embossed horse image at its top and two bells with a red bow at its bottom. It is marketed and sold as a Christmas ornament and intended to be hung on a Christmas tree. The retail packaging indicates the year 2007 and that this item is second in a collectible series.
