Tiny Horses Are Quietly Taking Over Portland’s Streets And It’s Downright Magical

This tiny element of Portland’s rich history was going overlooked, and one man decided to draw attention to it with a fun project that has led to many tiny horses tethered to sidewalks all around town. In 2005, Scott Wayne Indiana tethered a miniature toy horse to one of the city sidewalks’ many horse rings, and the project that followed has given a whimsical touch of fun to Portland’s many historical neighborhoods.
