Giant Bull

We live just 2 miles away. For a seasonal photo op, stop by during the Christmas season, when the bull is decorated and his nose is lit up like Rudolph.

Giant Bull

Along Route 224 at the entrance to the tiny town of Gilboa we found this beauty when we went there to photograph a historic bridge. Amazingly on this chilly spring day as I hopped out of the car to snap this picture, another car pulled up behind us and out popped a few people who took pictures of each other in front of it!

Big Steer

Giant fiberglass steer sits beside US 224 at Gilboa Ohio. It has been the victim of 'cow tipping' by at least one area football squad, or so I've 'herd'.
