When I talk about horses and the majority of people are really connected to them in a way or another, I really mean it. Some people have had the opportunity to be born and raised in horse families or they have bought or adopted one during their lives, however, not all of these people have this opportunity and it happens for certain reasons. Well, one thing is for sure, almost all of them have tried the amazing Carousel horse rides.
Of course, they are not real horses but from them, all these children get to know more about horses and understand that they are indeed amazing animals. Nowadays, these Carousels have a lot of different animals and objects, unlike the old standardized ones. Speaking about old Carousels, a lot of them were found covered in dust and totally broken. They were totally out of function until an amazing artist made something incredible with them.
Lisa Brown found a truly unique way to give these beautiful creations a second chance at life, and we absolutely love her for it. From the 1950s to the 1980s, children from all over looked forward to getting the chance to ride these coin-operated horses. Right outside of the grocery store or next to the pharmacy, parents would happily watch their children giggle in utter glee every time the horses began to rock back and forth. But unfortunately, the times changed, and eventually, these beautiful horses weren’t entertaining enough for children that were now addicted to other things.
The upkeep costs of these horses eventually became too much for store owners. It was a slow decline but, over the years, less and less of these beautiful horses were kept in the condition that they deserved. Whether it was from the weather or not being used for so long, one after the other, these horses stopped working and were thrown into the trash heaps. Well, you can always see the bright side of everything that might seem wrong and the bright side of it is definitely this video that you are going to see. I won’t say anything else but let you watch it on your own. Enjoy!
