Inquiring minds are asking about the three horse sculptures “pastured” in the 600 block of West Main Street.
Friday afternoon David Mordy, Landmark Bank Vice President and legal representative, answered the burning question.

 

“Landmark owns the location and thought it would be a great place for the horses to graze and welcome people to downtown Ardmore,” Mordy said, adding so far the horses don’t have names and the bank is “always open to suggestions.”

 

The three “metal breed” horses, including a colt, are the bank’s latest acquisitions.

 

“Mark Landrum and the entire Landmark Bank family have developed a love, fascination and admiration for this breed, especially the new colt downtown and a (new) colt at the North Commerce Street bank location,” Mordy said.

 

The horses are the work of western Colorado sculptor Doug Owen.

 

“Although Owen’s forms undoubtedly resemble horses, they can also be seen as pure assemblages of faintly recognizable objects — namely cars, tractors and motorcycle parts,” Mordy said.

 

Those who wish to suggest a name for any of the new horses should contact the bank at (580) 223-3170 or drop by the bank at 2525 N. Commerce St.
