The mustang’s Twitter persona, @Nightmare_Horse, has appealed to Colorado lawmakers to protect it, offering Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennett “ an exchange of demonic powers for political favors,” and telling Gov. John Hickenlooper to just say the word and he would “destroy Wyoming” so that Colorado could be the only “truly rectangular state.”
And even though critics’ constant references to the steed being “satanic” might sound hyperbolic, it has, in fact, killed someone: its creator, Luis Jimenez, who died when part of the sculpture fell on him while it was still under construction.
Nevertheless, there have been no official requests to the arts commission to send the piece, valued at around $2 million, out to pasture just yet.
