"My Petite Fleur," a 60-pound fiberglass colt who was stolen from its display base in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on July 20 was discovered floating in Schoharie Creek over the weekend.
According to the Saratogian
newspaper, two teenagers on a kayaking trip found "My Petite Fleur" Saturday afternoon and took it to the Saratoga Police Department. The paper reported there was minimal damage to the work of art.
"My Petite Fleur" is one of 24 horses on display as part of the ''Horses, Saratoga Style'' public art project sponsored by the arts council, the city and the Saratoga YMCA. Two other horses have been vandalized since being put on display.
