That hoss is happy to see Spring, Ginnie.

Does this spin in the wind? That would be cool to see.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Brian. It is probably the biggest weathervane I've ever seen. smile
What a great find, Ginnie!! Love it - and the "pop" of red is great!
Ginnie Hart: It's probably the biggest vane I've ever seen, Elizabeth, and out in the middle of nowhere. Totally worth the find for me. And yes, I loved that red. Thanks.
The Prancing Pony? Keep it safe. Keep it hidden.
Ginnie Hart: I can see this atop The Prancing Pony pub in England somewhere, Michael, can't you? HA!

The horse is laughing of joy and smiling at you, that you found him..... A great day out in the boonies... more to come soon smile
Great picture and love the touch of red.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. We had so much fun that day on roads we had never traversed before. We'll need to do it again! smile
What a find Ginnie! Wonderfully captured.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. This vane totally surprised me because of how BIG it is!

This is nice, full of energy
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. It needs a lot of energy to be able to move with the wind...it's so BIG.

and Ginnie's heart might have jumped up, too!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Philine. I couldn't believe it when we spotted it because it's so BIG!

It is the first time when I see a horse in weather vane. So funny !
Ginnie Hart: I see horses all the time, Marie, but never one this BIG. In fact, I think it's the biggest vane I've ever seen! smile

C'est le premier que je vois en girouette

Ginnie Hart: And it's HUGE, JP!
Oh that poor horsey looks in pain stuck on a spike Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Chad. He really wants to gallop off into the sunset!

You can imagine the face of the weathervane make.. "You want it HOW big?" smile
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Alan. I still can't believe it!
Upset because it didn't win the National?
Ginnie Hart: Now THAT'S an idea, Bill!
Oh I saw a badger weather vane last weekend. wink Have you got that in your collection yet?
Ginnie Hart: I do have a badger weathervane from Syde, England, LC. I bet it's not the only one.

Wow that is a huge weather vane! Someone loves horses and has a great sense of humour too - a positively joyous horse.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mike. It totally made my day. smile
They chose a lively horse to be a model for this weather vane.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Mary. A prancing, frolicking, cowboy kinda of horse. smile
Love when you share from the boonies!! Wow...the granddaddy of them all...so far!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. I think this gets the Blue Ribbon for size! smile
i think you enjoyed taking this shot, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! How can you tell, Ayush?! grin
That's a good find Ginnie. A great addition to your collection
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Janet. It's fun, isn't it!

Gosh, that is some size of weather vane, I hope it is firmly attached and able to withstand strong winds smile
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Anne. It does look like it's firmly attached to the wall (all that red).

That's going to give the horsies ideas!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure of it, Tom. grin
it takes a wee bit of hardware to keep the stallion on the weather vane... good find Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I like that they painted the hardware red, Peter, in case anyone had doubts. smile

A happy horse, considering it got stabbed in the heart!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Louis. What a hero! smile

This reminds me of the nursery rhyme 'Hey Diddle Diddle' but rather than the cow jumping over the moon it seems the horse is jumping over the chimney stack!!!
Ginnie Hart: That's a good one, Cherry!!! smile
Time to gallop into the week end.
Ginnie Hart: That's exactly what I think most of us will do, Michael! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
Considering how high this horse is, I don't think I'd even dare try... grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! Sometimes we have to be challenged in life, Sudipto! grin
