Scrap Metal Horse

This scrap metal horse along with other with other relics from a bygone era sit in the front yard of the Prairie Homestead Visitors Center. She wears an antique harness and stands next to an old well drilling machine. Perhaps one day she'll be hooked and they will strike the big one.
