I'd love to though I fear I'd smoosh that poor little horse!:)

I was a kid the last time I saw one of these.

We used to see these rides outside of grocery stores all the time. Your photo reminds me that I haven't seen one in a long while. Kids love them.

Yes! I will be there with a carrot. Do French horses like carrots?

J'aurais trop peur d'avoir mal au coeur! :-) mais les couleurs sont réconfortantes.

Mom and I never passed one w/o puttin' in a nickel.

Dina said...

Birdman's nickel would never get this modern horse to move.
How much is it these days?
Actually, it looks like the horse is flying. Is it Pegasus?

Gosh, I used to love riding the mechanical horse. If I had a penny, it was going in that machine at our local grocery store. Fun find.

Not one of Giambologna's, but it is quite perfect for its scope!

You know, I haven't seen one of these for a long time. It used to be that they were outside of supermarkets, places like Walmart, Kmart, etc. And there were always kids riding on them. I wonder what happened. Maybe the stores felt the liability was too great? This is a nice horse.

Lowell said...

Are you having any problems with a "503" error. I just wrote a long comment and it disappeared showing that error and it's happening way too often.

Anyway I like this horse. We used to have a lot of them around but not anymore. I can't remember when I last saw one. Wonder why?
