The horse, owned by Bob and Kathy Luke, has been repaired and has been re-installed at Luke &Kaye Architects at 821 22nd Ave.
Its legs were broken and its stomach was split open when the horse was vandalized. The artist repainted the horse and it and gave it a new clear coat.
Another carousel horse, "Meridian's Dutchess" at Van Zyverden Inc., 8079 Van Zyverden Road, has been temporarily removed.
Thirty-seven carousel horses make up the Around Town Carousels Abound public art project. Proceeds from the sale of the horses benefit Hope Village for Children, a home for abused and neglected children in Meridian.
