NEWTON – A horse is a horse, of course, of course. But Robert Gaynor’s steed is something else.
Named Flashy Bull, this handsome thoroughbred stands eight feet high and 11 feet long from nose to tail. It weighs a ton. And, despite the raised hoof and flared tail, it never moves.
Gaynor, 73, a retired attorney, created the bronze sculpture, which sits behind the hedge in his yard on a quiet corner not far off Centre Street in Newton.
Lots of people, of course, take up a hobby in retirement, and some produce beautiful works of art. But not like this.
