Unbelievable horse developments!

Last week on my way past the horse I was dismayed to find it lying on its side. I started to walk on when I noticed something that brought me to an abrupt halt. What’s that? There, on the sidewalk, in the lower right corner of the picture, something insane. It can’t be. Oh, but it is.

According to my rules, I did not make any changes. But this time it was hard! I was really tempted. The horse needed help! Someone else must have come to his aid, because later that same day, the horse provided me a different picture entirely. I have to mess with the next picture a bit to make it clear, but I will post it soon.

Meanwhile, can you see what’s going on here? This signals a level of passerby participation unheard of in preceding urban installation history.

Hi Kate- I got your note on my folding bike in front of the pearl. Your blog site is quite nice. I have long admired your horse, but never attached a note... sigh. My "Bike Friday" was built in Eugene. I bought it used from the world's best thrifter. They are generally expensive: custom made. But mine's just a good'un. It handles well, almost like an old fashioned scooter when going slow. At high speeds, it feels a little bit unstable, but not too badly. I have another, a Dahon, which is even stranger looking; I bought it for $150 and would probably sell it for that. "A man without a god is like a fish without a bicycle."

You've long admired my horse? Really? The one parked right behind yours? How did you know it was mine? You must've been sitting right there in Pearl Bakery watching me write that note!
Well thank you! I don't get many compliments on my horse. It's a bit of a tank, some would say, but it does the job. I'm interested in Bike Friday. And the Dahon. I've been wanting to buy a Brompton, but I gotta save up more. A woman without a bicycle is like a god without a fish. Maybe someday when you're in the area I can take Bike Friday for a spin, take a picture, post it here on my blog. (I did take a picture, but it didn't turn out very well.)

I've neglected your blog for some time, and now find myself having to play catch up. I am a horse lover and am intrigued by this miniature horse that seems to be forever lying on its side in the street. Does the humane society know about this? Or 4H club, or whatever organization concerns themselves with the humane treatment of horses? I should know, but I don't, because I live in Mexico (Nogales to be exact) and they have no such organization here. And what is that that someone left it? A plastic saddle? What, no food, or at least water? Are you giving it any water for pete's sake?
