For now, it will be on display at the Roswell Public Library. Roswell Parks and Recreation say the horse has a special significance. “It’s made out of wood…horses on the carousel are all hand-carved,” said Jim Burress, with the city’s Parks department.

The Spring River Zoo is accepting donations to restore more horses on the carousel. For more information or to donate, visit roswell-nm.gov/Zoo.
