Update (12:09 a.m.): The winning answer is that this painted horse, and a whole bunch of others, are part of Pioneer Days, in Ogden, Utah. Thanks to all who submitted entries.
CONRAD, Montana--I like horses. They're beautiful creatures--noble, strong, swift, and among the friendliest animals you're likely to encounter.
However much it evinces the above qualities, this horse is none of the above because it's really just a painted sculpture. But when I passed it by during my Road Trip 2009 project earlier this month, I knew it was worth documenting in one form or another.
That form, then, is today's Road Trip picture of the day challenge: I want to know if you can identify what this horse is part of, and where it's located. If you can, and you're the first person to e-mail me the correct responses (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com), you'll win either a DVD set or a video game.
I'm hoping that perhaps I may have found a picture challenge that someone won't solve in 15 minutes. But the reality is that I'm sure I'll get an e-mail less than 20 minutes after this posts with the correct answer. That has seemed to be the case every day I've run these challenges.
Perhaps today is the day I stump you.
For the next two weeks, Geek Gestalt will be on Road Trip 2009. After driving more than 12,000 miles in the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last three years, I'll be writing about and photographing the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more in Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and Colorado. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. And in the meantime, join the Road Trip 2009 Facebook page and follow my Twitter feed.
