Can we please stop talking about getting rid of the horse? He's been around for years and is a Denver landmark. This conversation has gone beyond beating a dead horse.

I just wish the eyes were Bronco Orange instead of red.

The creepy horse that gives nightmare to me every time I go to the airport ? Oh but why? It's just a great conversation piece every time some one comes into town, starting with " whoa, WTf"

I could get over hating it if those red demonic eyes weren't part of the equation, right, Dino Valente?

A little scary to see on your way to a flight. It is memorable.


Any chance of substituting a Corvette in place of the Ford ?
