Standing horse

Today brought a (partial) day of jury duty for me. I was called to serve in Newburyport, a town I visit periodically since it is the location of one of my favorite wandering spots, the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. No Parker River visit today, just a morning at the Newburyport Superior Courthouse. I was fascinated to learn that it is the oldest working courthouse in the country. It was designed by Charles Bulfinch and opened in 1805.

When I returned to my car I was pulled to some artwork near the river. This horse is wonderful, isn't he?
