I was given this cast aluminum horse from my neighbor,so as you can see in the pics, I cleaned it up, repainted it and attached it to a metal pole with the address plate and the bison skull. I'm going to weld horse shoes to the main post next week and secure it at the end of the driveway.

Very nice Lenny ! I had 2 I salvaged from the scrapper and it was a fight with dad to use it out front. I guess everything is a fight with him. I give up. Really like the paint job and how you used it. I wanted to put mine over the gates with a rought iron saying Running Horse Waters.

Thanks for the remarks guy's I am very proud of it I just can't wait to finish it off with a rock garden and old horse shoes going up the main pole.I just wish we could grow cactus up here in canada it would make a great addition to the rock garden.

Great sign, any idea what the horse was used for originaly? You might be surprised about the cactus growing in cold climates. I'm in Boston and I had to work in a florist shop that froze up. Even the toilet was split in half, all the plants were dead except for the cactus. I also saw some prickly pear growing outside at a customers house when I asked about them she said it has to be a really dry spot with good drainage. Evidently they can handle the cold but not excesive moisture. Again great job on the sign. Ed

The horse was from a merry go round dated sometime in the 1940's
