And This Is....?


This marvelous object/piece of sculpture/whatever was just sitting there on the lawn of a local horse farm. A gold star to whoever can tell everyone what it is.

I used to work at an Arabian horse stud, and this looks exactly like the "mare dummy" used to assist with the uhm, "collections" from stallions...

it looks like a rudimentary sculpture of a sheep... or at least how my 7 year old would do it.

I have discovered this site only today and have, so far, browsed back as far as Dec 30, 2007. Your photographs are exotic (in the most complimentary sense of the word)and your narrative most interesting and informative. Thank you for sharing your corner of the world with us.

Yes... I'd say a mare dummy, though I've never seen one decorated with a horse head! Maybe it's more attractive to the stallions : )

It is, in fact, a mounting dummy for the stallions for artificial insemination...but such a nice looking one. Almost like a piece of modern sculpture.
