Winsong whimsy

Photos by Barry Wallace

I do not know the story behind the whimsical Winsong Farm sign, pictured at top, with the horse holding a teddy bear in its mouth, but I'm sure there must be one.   There certainly is a story behind the nearby hand-painted, full size, horse sculpture in the other two photos.   Firstly, the horse is named Silhouette.   This horse was one of more than 20 similar resin horse sculptures created as art landmarks for the equestrian events of the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto and the GTA.   Silhouette was painted by artist Ellen Cameron.   Her painting around the body of the horse depicts several horse-related activities and also features the autographs of several renowned equestrians such as Mac Cone, Torchy Millar, Ian Millar, John Rumble and Christilot Boylen, among others.   Winsong Farm is to be found on the northeast corner of King's 8th Concession and the 15th Sideroad.
