I had been wandering around Irvington when I came across this toy horse chained outside someone’s house.
I didn’t think much of it until a friend informed me that there are little metal hooks on sidewalks where people used to leash actual horses to. When I went back to inspect these two shots, sure enough, there was that hook in the sidewalk.
After a quick Google search I also learned that using these rather outdated rings to tie up toy horses is a bit of a thing. Who knew! Since this encounter I’ve noticed the metal loops on the sidewalk (seriously, they’re everywhere!) and even spotted another toy horse on the other side of the ‘hood.
