Certain natural events – however seemingly insignificant – achieve so perfectly a higher symbolic meaning, that it is hard not to see in them a divine message. Such is the case with the only equestrian statue erected to honour former German chancellor Angela Merkel,
AHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAH! AHAHAHAHHA! Ohhhhhh, as someone who grew up with horses, including American Quarterhorses, I have soooo much to say about this!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
First of all: this American Quarterhorse of Daddy Wilhelm’s has absolute SHIT conformation. Angela Merkel is 5’5”, and although Quarterhorses can be as small as 14.3 hands/57 inches, this one looks like a little 13-hand-something runt (observe how bent Merkel’s legs are!), as if he could be the dubious result of crossbreeding with a Shetland pony. And obviously Markel’s signature squatty physique is only too painfully showcased by his stumpy stature.
Secondly, he looks even more like the product of a dubious redneck inbreeding operation thanks to his weak, slopy hindquarters: AQHs are bred to be the fastest horses of any breed in a quarter mile race, propelled by a powerful, square hip, which also enables them to turn or stop with ease and balance. This one looks like he’d be bested by a class of kindergartners in a 5-yard dash, and miserable to ride upon.
Then we have his face - he seems to be sporting a vaguely Roman nose (not at all becoming for a Quarterhorse) and a small, peevishly-placed eye, suggesting a devious, truculent personality and a troubled mind. He’d as likely throw you off and brutalize you with his hooves, as let you ride him anywhere. Also, his knees look weird.
Oh, THANK YOU for this, Eugy!! 😆
This is so good on so many levels!
The magnificent image of an equestrian Merkel!
Using recycled materials that are not fit for purpose!
The timing of the collapse!
The timing is the best.
Thank you very much for this.
Reminds me of the George Floyd mural wall lighting strike.
To be renamed "And the horse you rode in on"
I feel sorry for the horse - despite the fact it is not real.
I suppose it is too much to ask to have the ruins remain on the ground until nature (and Germany) heals and reclaims them entirely.
Too perfect and too funny!
A perfect metaphor, perfectly described.
So, how should we interpret not having reins on the horse! 😂😂
Hollywood could not have written a better ending to this grotesque tribute to Ms. Merkel.
Angela - thanks for all the immigrants you allowed to come in so a great country and economy could be destroyed. The NWO salutes you.
If I'd been astride a horse when I saw this, I would have fallen off with laughter.

That statue really does sum up nicely the crappy pastiche that our politicians/government agencies use too. It looks like 2 separate statues that were then stupidly joined together using “new fangled “ technology, I mean what could go wrong?
I particularly like that they captured Merkel wearing her favorite Mao collared shirt. so fitting.
A very deserving end to the statue of one of the worst politicians in the world.
Leading the charge to ruin...
