This small horse...stands agbout 3 feet tall...displayed on the east side of the Cultural Arts Center in Carrollton.
Many of the displays have a plaque, this one does not.

Head is some metal smooth part, with a mane made of wires pulled from the amp or distributor, or similar part.

Found this about the artist:
"Born in Eerie, Pennsylvania, Joel’s fascination with art began during his educational years in high school and college. His skills of grinding, melting, mixing and welding metal were learned as an undergrad. Several years later, during a slow day at work Joel created a small sculpture using scrap square tube steel. A trade was made with a jeweler friend and a new direction began in his life. Finding large amounts of cast off scrap around the neighborhoods of Atlanta, Joel started collecting an assortment of steel and, with a new mig welding machine, sculptures were created out of the bits and pieces.

"Starting small with whimsical wall sculptures depicting faces, animals, and abstracts, he moved on to large freestanding sculptures using recycled steel that he found or that was given to him. Today he creates sculptures ranging from tiny dogs weighing a few pounds, to wacky wall faces, to a full size steel horse, and some flamingos that invaded his garage studio." ~ Ideas From the Scrap Bin
