City Rooftop Horsey

I’m sure there’s a great story behind the placement of this molded plastic creature, dangling from a wire frame atop a building!

You might remember, depending on how long you have been following the blog, that my friend Sally said that things come in threes.

And the day before that there was the horse of a different color. The post the day before that one was The Old Gray Mare (or stallion).

There was the steed left by a cowboy in an Arlington neighborhood alley, just like the one Chicago John rode as a kid.

And here is the latest one I caught yesterday as I sat in traffic in East Liberty and happened to see it up on the roof.

“Found” rocking horses or rocking horse heads in the city are a theme without my even realizing.  Maybe someone is going around the city and placing them for me to find!

Here are the aforementioned horse sightings in the city cause let’s face it- who has time to return to old blogposts?

  1. What’s this? Could it be? Is Pittsburgh the site of the long-fabled rocking horse burial ground? You may be onto something here, Ruth.

    • Dear Stef, What a gift. Love your research and have printed it out. I do run into a lot of horses but most are the molded plastic kind so they are really stuck- no mane blowing in the wind! I like your animal totem link and am grateful to you for taking time to send it. I sure do run into a LOT of these horses.

  2. This is so delightful, Ruth. am finally beginning to make the rounds again after many months of house repairs that are almost done.
    but enough about me. trust you have been keeping well. really enjoyed this horse collection 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
