    • I recall a story about the statue, lord knows how long ago it happened, but I think it was before Katrina. A couple of fellas from the parish were drinking in the Quarter one night and while they were stumbling back to their cars, found a piece of the statue on the ground, the horse’s tail maybe? They put it in their car and took it home with them. When they woke up the next morning they were horrified to find they had it and then took it to the NOPD to turn it in. I remember it being a funny story at the time…

      I cannot find a link to the story anywhere online, I’ll keep looking. Meantime, if anyone remembers the story, please post it!
