A 1400-pound bronze sculpture, called Isabelle, by Bozeman, Mont., artist Deborah Butterfield, was lowered into a courtyard Friday, prior to its installation at the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Travis Robinson, assistant museum director, left, watched the operation.
The International Museum of the Horse, in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, hosts the exhibition, 'The Horse,' from Oct. 22 through April 6, 2012.
