Ride 'em, Cowboys!

The little local park and zoo has some traditional barrel horses, which have been charming and attractive to children for generations.

The park also features a whole set of creative brass sculptures that hadn't been thought out quite so well. In the winter, they're great. In the summer, they heat up so much that you'd burn yourself touching them, so each sculpture has a seasonal white picket fence to keep the kids away. Oops.

They are charming to look at, though!

Hmm.. I wonder if the metal pieces would be ok, if they kept them shaded from direct sun.
