Oh, those flying nags!

As we travelled around the Outer Banks we noticed a number of horses with wings. Makes sense, eh -- "nags" in the area where flight began. I was intrigued so I took pictures of the horses whenever I saw them. I wonder how many there are?  Meridian, Mississippi and Winchester, Virginia also have this sort of signature mascot. Winchester has giant apples and Meridian has carousel horses. I wonder how many town in the U.S. do this. It would make a great article in a travel magazine!

Here are some of the flying nags of Nags Head including one who appears to have lost his wings.

A little town of Pulaski, TN has turkeys and a town near Luzby, MD (can't remember if it were that town or one close) had seahorses.

Love it! I'll have to check out Luzby. I've never heard of it. Would love to see the sea horses.
