I do so enjoy the towns that do this sort of things -- those horses are neat!

I love when cities participate in these fun ARTFUL projects.

In Montana they did a Steer and here in UTAH they do a Moose in some cities :)

That's a neat and beautiful work of art! We have one city who have painted trash cans.

I love these pieces of art displayed throughout our cities. Here if Fort Worth we had longhorns of course. Great pictures.

How funny - I got some horses to mosaic inspired by projects like your cities horses. See mine (hehe) at

Hi, Glenda, those are some neat horses, and that copper penny one is particuarly so. Enjoyed that. I have seen butterflies, cows, swans, manatees, and fish, but these are the first horses. I love the mosaic looking design on the first one's back.

Happy OW...

Great town you live in that displays these art sculptures. I used to live in Buffalo and they did the same sort of thing except with buffalo of course. Fun!

LV said...

I really enjoyed the horse sculptures. I have seen some like that elsewhere, but not as pretty as these. The first you shared, is my favorite.
