    I know I've seen it before and I'm pretty sure it's either a school or a company logo. I'm fairly certain that the "designer" who charged my customer for it didn't create it.

    Does anyone recognize this?

    First thing that came to mind was merrill lynch but thats a bull ... google seach by image doesn't recognize it. If you need to recreate it a simple live trace should do it perfectly.

    Nope. Position of the gait is all wrong. Doesn't convey a gaited horse.

    A Walker has three hooves on the ground at all times when in its fast walk. That and the fact that contestants at the Walker Celebration like to sore the front legs so as to get the horses to step high like that -- made me think of the TW.

    But yeah, I think you're right - the legs aren't in the right position. But then again, maybe the "designer" just didn't get it right...


    <edit> In fact, the only horses gaited like the the illustration are harness racers, yes? Maybe the designer *did* get it wrong...

    I got vector art from my customer, I just don't want to sell him a $750 stainless steel horse logo for his building if it's somebody else's logo and will come back to bite him later.

    You might be thinking of a Missouri Fox Trotter, but that's still wrong position. More then likely the designer did get it wrong. Not a whole lot go in for the different horse breeds. I just spend a life time ago in the equine industry (and still involved to a degree).


    Not supposed to any more. There are a lot of things wrong with that breed association, but I digress.

    To digress just a tad more, Pepsi just pulled their sponsorship of the Celebration because of this issue.

    To repeat myself though, the leg position makes me think of a harness racer...

    Oh, I'm sure there are people that still do it. I wouldn't be surprised if they still used razor blades and turpentine to accomplish the goal.

    Soooooo..... Pat, since no one really can identify real or from cartoon-land, it would seem it is safe to use it at this point.

    If it's an EPS or AI file, you can open it in Notepad or Wordpad and read the opening lines of the header which may tell you the name of the individual or company to whom the copy of the program is registered.
