An Iron Horse for My Stable

Spring is always a good time to get those outdoor projects out of the way. Here at my Bedford, New York farm, that includes the installment of a very special ornamental cast iron horse head above the front barn doors of my stable - gifted to me by my friend, antiques dealer Jim Klinko, owner of Furniture on Consignment II in Westport, Connecticut.

I called Carmine Luppino, from Luppino Landscaping and Masonry LLC, to discuss the project details and make a plan. Carmine and his talented crew are responsible for all the stonework at the farm and always seem to know exactly how I'd like things done. It took more than a full day to get the task completed, but I am happy to report the horse head is up and it looks fantastic.

Enjoy these photos.
