'Horsing Around Langley' writes history

The
The 'Horsing Around Langley' horse called Otto is one of several currently on display at Willowbrook Mall. Commissioned by Otter Co-op and painted by Felicity Holmes, Otto was designed with the historical aspect of Otter Co-op in mind, from its beginnings in the 1920s to the present day, and capturing the rural atmosphere of the area from Aldergrove to Pitt Meadows. Holmes said, 'I wanted to convey the importance of community and family within the design of the horse… By showing him walking through a meadow full of flowers it emphasizes the rural countryside.'
