I googled "unusual horses" and this is what I found...

I knew about the Akhal-Teke before, but still the pictures! They appear to be made of solid gold.

There was an Akhal-Teke show jumper a few years who was traded out of Russia to an American for the price of a washing machine.

This little guy looks like he'd be perfect to fit in my pocket:

And this one...

And this one...

But, dude. "There is a limit."

If I could ride this to work in the morning, I would.

To quote A Christmas Story, "he's... he's smiling at me." Or not at me from this angle. I am no less creepified.
...Why the toilet lid? Why the spigot?

There's just something about making horses out of stuff that isn't horses. (I still love the kitchen utensils and the ones made from fabric laid out on landscapes that I posted a few weeks back.)

On a totally unrelated note, I found this image at a site on trendy home decor. (Shhh! We're hiding our horse under the lampshade. No one must know!)

Seriously, it's OK to do this in my house? It is, in fact, trendy? Duly noted, my friends. Duly noted.
