Horsies -- junkyard & otherwise

How's this for a bad dream: to be offered my choice of one of those t. rex sculpts you can see out on Iron Springs Road -- or one of Gene Galazan's junkyard horses. I'm sure I would dither and dither until the genie or wizard gave up on me and withdrew the offer.

However, the point of this post is that finally the granddotter had a chance for a close look at the equine pair over at Prescott College. As I may have mentioned in the past, the little one is absolutely besotted by horsies. Has been, for years.

She definitely liked the Galazan critters. I'm pleased -- she's not a stickler for realism as so many kids are.

Unfortunately, she missed out on Shingles, over at the True Value hardware emporium. Just goes to show that you can find one of almost anything at a proper hardware store! And, yes, I'd settle for Shingles if offered.

I think the dotter would also choose Shingles.

You could pick up a real horse for less. But then you'd have to feed and care for it. Probably cheaper to get Shingles

We should be happpy that there are folk, today, with both talent and imagination in the midst of mediocracy.

I remember last year True Value wanted 4K for that pony. Its real value is about $300. Child labor, with a little driftwood is all I see there.

I wonder who the "Shingles" artist is? If it's a local person, it would be nice to know the name.

od -- now wait, I didn't say that I'd choose Shingles! I really, really go for those junkyard horsies.

steve -- there's always a catch, isn't there?

bro -- you are so right¡ Who'd a thunk of turning auto parts into horsies?

style -- picky, picky!

anon av -- I've wondered about that...
