Before becoming the Archbishop he was a blacksmith. According to the legend, once Dustan was working in his shop when suddenly the Devil walked into his store and asked Dustan to shoe his horse. Dustan recognized that the man was none other than the devil himself but he pretended as if he did not notice it. He agreed on shoeing the Devil’s horse but instead of the horse, he nailed the horseshoe on the devil’s foot. The devil was in great pain and pleaded Dustan to remove the horseshoe from his foot. It quickly agreed to remove the horseshoe but only on one condition. The devil even before listening to Dustan’s condition agreed to grant it as he couldn’t bear the pain of the nail in his foot. Dustan took a promise from the devil asking him not to enter the house which has a horseshoe nailed on the door. The devil agreed on a promise not to enter the house which has a horseshoe nailed on its door.
According to another story during the Stone Age across the British Isles and Northern Europe, people believed in ‘fairy folk’. It is said that around 400 BC, when the Celtic tribes began to invade the lands, the fairies took shelter in the woods as it was convenient to hide there.

The goblins were associated with misfortunes as they cast spells on cows preventing them from giving milk and the goblins also cast their spells on hen which made the hen infertile and she could lay eggs. The goblins feared iron and metal weapons. Thus, the horseshoe is said to be hung outside the main door of every household.
