Sheryl Cozad

This horse was commissioned by the City of Shawnee. One side of the horse depicts two governors: Gov. Charles Haskell from 1907 and Gov. Brad Henry from 2007. On that side, a statehood celebration is depicted with many figures in early 20th clothing. In addition, the historical train station is shown. On the horse's other side, a centennial celebration parade is shown complete with approximately 27 portraits of Shawnee citizens riding on floats or riding cars or tractors in the balloon-filled parade. Feathers and flags are included in the depiction. This horse has been in front of the Shawnee City Hall.
