King Township is now home to six of the 20 fibreglass horses that have been painted by local artists to publicize the Pan Am Games equestrian events, later in June.   The fundraiser is called the Headwaters Parade of Horses.   Most of the equestrian events will be held in the Caledon area.   After the Pan Am Games the painted horses will be sold to interested buyers for $3,500.   The horse statue above is to be found at Winsong Farm on the 15th Sideroad, just east of the 8th Concession.   It is called Silhouette and was painted by Ellen Cameron.
