Actually, think about the Cows on Parade art installation that started in Chi-town back in 1999 and traveled the world. To date, it has raised close to $25 million for nonprofit organizations.
The horse statues currently on display around the city are also individually sponsored and beautifully decorated by local artists, and have been designed in the likeness of Chicago’s Mounted Patrol Unit horses. Each is named for a fallen police officer, and all monies raised will provide financial support to injured Chicago police officers and the families of those killed in the line of duty.
I hope Lexington, Kentucky is on the national tour because these beauties would be right at home in the Bluegrass State.
Am I right, #BBN?
