What’s good: A horse statue in the middle of a field

A redwing blackbird sits on a horse statue in a Readington, NJ field.

When I first saw it, I almost crashed my bike. I was riding along a backroad, not really sure what town it is, I’m guessing Readington. Out in the middle of a field, nothing else in sight, is a statue of a horse rearing up. I’ve gone past it many times since that first sighting, and when others see it for the first time, they have the same reaction. Why would someone put that in the middle of a field? I thought the light might be good to get a picture of it today, so I drove over to see how it looked. When I got out, there was a redwing blackbird sitting on the horse’s nose. Life is good.

  1. That’s fantastic! I know exactly where that is. The first time I saw it, I too, almost crashed my bike I was staring at it so hard trying to determine if it was real or not. I eventually make Kathy turn around with me for another go around so I could stop and stare! Love it!
