A Horse out of Farmland: Calgary horse sculpture

Continuing the theme of public sculpture, this ‘mechanical farm horse’, made from farm machinery, sits on Stephen Avenue, close to one of the pedestrianised shopping streets in downtown Calgary. In the UK, it would be considered a Health and Safety nightmare by some, as it’s easy to walk into, if you’re not looking where you’re going. In Canada, it goes pretty much unnoticed. Although a bit ‘out there’, this sculpture isn’t as whacky as an upturned church, and the Calgarians are fond of their horses, so I’d expect it to be fed the odd ball bearing.
