Corn Stalk Horses
Marshall Mollett, a retired area farmer, recently created some "corn stalk horses" for a fall festival held near the Greenville, Ill., courthouse. Mollett is quite the antique collector and has three sheds full of just about every kind of old farm equipment. Local citizens requested the horse display.
    Mollett used fabricated hog panels to mold the body and legs and then used corn stalks to dress them up, adding ear corn for the hooves. The horses are hitched to a buggy and harness that he borrowed from his collection of antique equipment. Local citizens greatly appreciated the display. Mollett's only complaint was that the squirrels wouldn't leave the earn corn hooves alone. (C.F.
