Striped Ponies

At first glance you might think these are zebras, but actually this is a wire sculpture of two ponies outside the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg. I don’t know anything about this piece of art because there was no information accompanying it. Sorry!


Wickenburg, AZ

I have to admit that before I went to Wickenburg with Magpie last Friday this was pretty much all I knew about the place.  It had always been for us merely a pass through on the way to Laughlin, NV, and I had no idea about the history, the art sculptures, the little shops and the restaurants there. Dare I say that Wickenburg has more class in its right hoof than all of Phoenix? (OK, there, I said it.)
