Plastic Horse Update

In plastic horse news, the new horse is usually lying on its side. So much for its prancy-dancy, high-falutin, raised-hoof pose. Only got three legs left to stand on. Unlike the previous, low-brow horse, who was firmly planted on all four.

And are you ready for this? It’s pretty gorey, so brace yourself. If The Godfather was hard on you, you might want to close your eyes for a minute.

Yes, it’s true. Someone amputated one of the horse’s legs. And not the raised-hoof leg, but one of the other essential three – if you can believe such cruelty. There it lies, nearby – see? It happened on March 28th. Sorry I didn’t tell you sooner, but I’ve been real busy.

Since then, the horse can’t stand at all, but is always seen lying pitifully on its side. In addition, someone has had the poor taste to abscond with the leg. But the other day (April 4th, to be exact), some kind passerby found a way to make it stand up by propping it up against the curb. So I guess there’s one kind person left in the world.

And yes, the leg is still missing. Don't be fooled by that crack in the curb where the leg would be if it were still attached.
