Grand Junction, Colorado – Loose ends

When I was in Grand Junction over Memorial Day weekend I discovered that the city feature various pieces of art sculpture all over town.  These metal horse sculptures were in a traffic circle, of all places, as I got off the dreaded interstate on Horizon Drive.  There were a total of 5 horses, 4 full grown and one colt:
