Peavey Fountain





















As a typical St. Paulite, I don't often venture to Mineapolis, but when I do, I make some delightful discoveries. Who would guess that there is a momument dedicated to military horses?

  6. The logistics of an army traveling with horses must have been complicated. I would not want to have been on that troop ship.

    Nice fall colors in the background.

  7. I love this idea Kate, and why not they're God's creatures too and they didn't have a choice!! Wonderful monument.

  10. I've not heard of such a thing but I think it is a good idea. Horses played an important role in many a battle in the good ol' days. And now, dogs continue to play important roles in our armed forces. Horses, not so much.
