House in a Horseshoe: The house (ca. 1770) was owned by Philip Alston, whose band of colonists seeking independence from Britain was attacked here in 1781 during the American Revolution by British loyalists led by David Fanning.
'Kaspar' - sculpted from recycled horseshoes by Bud Thomas of Oregon Horseshoe Art; stands 9.5 feet tall; he has a 'wilder mane and fierce stance' than 'Gabriel' (another horse sculpter by Thomas); even the mane, tail, face and each hoof are made by heating and shaping the horseshoes
Herb Hanlin, of Milburn, Okla., found a practical use for old horseshoes. He welds a hinge onto the shoes and then welds the hinges and shoes onto the tops of his metal gates. The horseshoes swing from the gate over the top of the fencepost to keep the gate closed.
