Just Horsing Around


My colleague Tom Whelan sent me this video clip today. It is from a security camera mounted in front of a friend’s brothers’ real estate office in Saratoga Springs, New York. Back in the summer of 2007, Roohan Realty installed a horse sculpture in front of their offices as one of thirty four “Saratoga Style” horses in a citywide arts project. The statue was subsequently vandalized a few times which prompted the installation of the security camera.

Last Sunday the camera caught these urban cowboys demonstrating their horsemanship skills. Supposedly these aspiring cowpokes wandered over from a wedding reception across the street.

I think alcohol was involved.

So, what was the clue that alcohol was involved?

1. Staggering
2. bumping into one another
3. Trying to mount a statue horse indoors with no musculature or flexibiilty

or

4. Smoking indoors
