Life-size statue of a horse that was greatly loved and admired during its life - not a thoroughbred, I think this horse was a "gaiter." Nasty distracting background replaced by incredibly garish background.

Not technically a statue or free-standing sculpture, but certainly a sculptural stone carving -- one of the relief decorations on the Fulton County Courthouse, Lewistown, Illinois.

Two versions of a horse. The Grecian horse is probably an ideal of what a horse should be. The little bronze is an actual famous harness stallion - Sultan's Great Day- who also appears during competition in the background painting.

Found at the salvage depot--I think it's Justice but it might just be some silly parlor game.
