Have you seen this beautiful multi-colored horse sculpture in Ft. Collins?

The sculpture in the Old Town Square was damaged last month when an intoxicated transient allegedly tried to jump on to ride it and knocked it over.

According to the Coloradoan, Fort Collins police arrested a 44-year-old transient named Wesley White just after 1 a.m. on March 27 in the Old Town Square alley between CooperSmith's Pub and Brewing Co. and the Bondi Beach Bar. White told police he had tried to wrangle the horse after drinking 'plenty' of whiskey and rum. Witnesses say he tried to get on the horse but it's hoof broke and the sculpture crashed to the ground.

The horse sculpture created by Amy Brackenbury is known as Caballo de Colorado and was about to be moved temporarily during the renovation of Ft. Collin's Old Town Square. It has now been taken to the Downtown Development Authority warehouse to be used by an arts program.

The Ft. Collin's DDA says the horse can't be fixed and has filed an insurance claim on the $4,000  sculpture. The colorful Fiberglas-shell horse had stood on it's hind legs in the Old Town Square for seven years.
