These must be horses for the Blue Man Group.

I wish we had horse sculptures out here instead of cows, pigs, Snoopys (in St. Paul where I was last year), and dinosaurs. It's nice to see creative things done with those generic fiberglass sculptures (hello Black Angus Steakhouse), but there's just something very elegant and beautiful about the figure of a horse.

not really.  is my crappy cellphone.  the first and last pics are in full sunshine and the colors show a bit.  everything in the shade looks blue.

very moody.

love the horses, so cool! Sorry about all the $$$ being spent on "boring" stuff.

I agree horses have an advantage as a starting point - immediate thoughts of swiftness, speed, elegance.  this is the 2nd time they've done it in Lexington - the first was 2000, so it may become a decennial (?) event.

CIncinnati got fiberglass pigs - being nicknamed "Porkopolis" doesn't leave it much choice.
Chicago I think had cows, which have some whimsy potential

thanks.  the $$$$ stuff has to be done whether I want to or not.  so best to get it over and done with.

That is indeed a lovley skeleton horse.

Toronto had fiberglas moose about a decade ago. All their antlers were busted off in no time, so it was like a herd of female moose had taken over the city.

skulls, bones, skeletons remind me of you.  I should go downtown on the weekend with a camera and get some proper pics.

Are these punny horses? Denver had a bunch of punny cows floating around downtown a few years back

[this is good] I love these!!!
Our up north town, Petoskey, Michigan, had decorative fish one year. It's so much fun to see what the artists do with each one!

You have to get permission and pay to park in front of your house. Now that is aggravation.

All the horse sculptures are cool. I kinda like the starry night one.

Yeah,  we have to pay to park in front of house.  Its a minor annoyance.  Getting the permits is more so.  Yes we own our house and no we don't have lease papers......

I like the horses very much, but must confess that CowParade is my fave.
