Heard an interesting thing about horse statues the other day. Apparently if a horse statue has a soldier/rider on its back, and the horse is rearing up on it's hind legs, that's a sign that the rider died in battle.

So. Now you know. ;-)

Yes I've heard that before too. And if one leg is in the air the rider was wounded in battle. Apparently. Wiki says there is little evidence to support this belief but for our purposes that's unimportant, as we are in the business of symbols and beliefs.

Taking screenshots like Bob back in the day. ;-)

From the first episode of UK mini-series 'The Fear' which started tonight over here. The show looks really promising.

Lots of horse statues in that Person Of Interest show.

Well, at least one, can't do a screen shot off a DVR, but maybe one day I'll post them.

Go old school and get your camera out like me up there. Better to document something a bit scrappily than let it slip away.
