Loch Ness Texas?

Real Estate Appraiser with Appraisal IQ (Real Estate Appraisal) in Austin Texas

metal sculpture: loch ness monster

Out in a field in eastern Travis County, Texas.

This guy was about 25 feet long and maybe 4 feet high at the front. Made from metal with a nice old rusty patina.

Strangely, he was surrounded by an electric fence - perhaps because the cows kept getting tripped up?

Just in case any of y'all thought Texans didn't have a sense of humor, or great taste in their yard art.

This would be a great candidate for aerial photography

Yes - while out on an appraisal for a drive-by, we drove by this and did a rural road u-turn!

If you were out for a nice leisurely stroll one afternoon, that might hurt!  Looks almost like there may be steps or seats on it.  What a great find!
