galloping on

Every time that I've accompanied Alice to Colorado Springs, on research, we've passed this old metal horse in the yard of a junk shop - and I've fantasized about rescuing it, putting it in the car, driving it home.  It always shrinks in my imagination.  Today, full-sized, I came to terms - I think - with the fact that this hunk of rusting equine metal is pretty much horse sized, and also is on a complicated (and heavy) metal base - and it would be hard to get it into a U-haul, much less into the back of, even, an SUV.  On the other hand, if anyone's ever driving with a largish strong truck from Old Colorado City to Santa Fe or to LA, I'll happily pay for delivery ...
