The Horse Project in Portland, Oregon, USA
This is one of my favorite Portland quirks: the tiny toy horses that are tied to old historic hitching posts around the city that are cemented into the curb. Chronicled on The Horse Project and on Flickr, every time I come across one of these equines in person I feel a little bit happier inside my 12-year-old horse-crazy girl memory.

Portland is a working-man’s city turned creative paradise for hip makers. Cheap enough to provide “quality of life” and close to the outdoors, it boasts lots of live music, good food, art, coffee, and unique characters. The town’s alternative motto is “Keep Portland Weird”.
Breakfast at Sweedeedee, hike in Forest Park, lunch at Lovely’s Fifty-Fifty, sunny summer afternoon at the dog park, dinner at Mio Sushi, cheap movie at McMenamins. Who’s taking me out on a date?
There are so many of them and they are always a surprise and different every time.
When the poor horse has a broken leg.
Some people leave food for the horses.
