The legendary Iron Horse sculpture (also known as Pegasus Without Wings) was created by artist Abbot Pattison in 1954 and placed on the University of Georgia campus. Its modern lines were not well received, and a few days later the degradation began with a bonfire built under it.
After multiple defacements, the Iron Horse was stabled in a secret warehouse where it remained until 1959 when UGA horticulture professor L.C. Curtis moved it to his farm along Highway 15, about 20 minutes from the university. It stands there today in the middle of a corn field, visible from the road unless it’s close to harvest season.
While the sculpture lives on the Curtis farm, it actually is still owned by the University of Georgia. UGA renamed the farm Iron Horse Plant Sciences Farm honoring Pattison’s creation.
Roam & Ramble was inspired by my Jeep Wrangler I absolutely love to drive. As I roam past various curiosities on my journeys, I often wonder about them and decided to make a game of taking a shot that has to feature some part of my Jeep and then ramble on a bit about whatever it is that has me wondering. #MyJeepStory #KB4Jeep
