"CHARLIE" found steel, 48"long, 33"high, 9"wide

The neck of this horse is made from a very old piece of stage coach horse harness found in central Montana. You can see the ring where a section of leather rein passed through back to the stage driver.


"SALLY SAUNTERS SOUTH" found steel, 41"long, 34"tall, 10"wide

In salvage yards, old car bodies are picked up by a crane with huge claws which quickly crunch them to about one third their original size as they are lifted into another frightening machine which further crushes them into a large cube. I pried and torched one of these cubes apart and found the ingredients for Sally inside.


"TALL TABITHA" found steel, 48"tall, 54"long, 12"wide,

The inside body of Tall Tabitha, viewed from the top, is composed of cast off, quarter inch thick, odd shaped pieces from steel fabricators who stamp out various shapes from large steel sheets, then discard the unwanted remnants. I welded these together for an interesting looking digestive system for Tabitha.


"TALL TIMOTHY" found steel, 36"tall, 34"long, 12"wide

Timothy’s left front leg is from an old, red Farmall tractor. The rest of Tim, including his high hump, is an eclectic mix of old crunched car and machinery parts.

"BUCKO" found steel, 48"long, 33"high, 9"wide

Found steel, with the unique colors and textures not possible to achieve with newly painted surfaces, comes from Montana salvage yards, where old cars, farm and ranch machinery, mining equipment, oil drums, and other metal detritus, some of which dates back fifty to one hundred years are laid to rest.  Hence "Bucko".

 28" long x 30" high x 8" wide  13 lbs.

"ALPHA BETTY" found steel, 23" long x 20" high  

"ALTO ANNIE" found steel, 30"long, 27"high, 8" wide
