Cow-Reindeer Statue and Odd Mailbox

The reindeer is still there, but it's only being held together by force of habit; it's about to fall apart completely. If it's on your list, go to see it sooner rather than later.

Hybrid deer cow.

HCDE and Mailbox Crawler

A nicely welded combination horse-cow-deer-elk (HCDE) in the parking lot of a welding shop. At the same shop as the HCDE, a nicely welded crawler tractor "John Deere" mailbox.
