I know where that statue is, but I'm not going to tell you until you drink our magic Kool Aid.

Looks like it's on a gravel pathway on the edge of a park.

In the back garden of what used to be a Farmers house, who used to keep horses, but now has only statues of them, and his hobby used to be woodcarving.

Or do you mean which town?

How will you buy me drinks all night (and take me back to yours for more), when you're in London?

You apparently seem to know where it is, so without pickies of the prize, where's the incentive?

... and if I give you the name and location, do I then have to drive there and have my pic. taken, for proof?

As for the street name, can't make that out, anyway.

Re: Help help

I would think my powers of recognition would be more appropriate .... brainpower is irrelevant - I either know it or I don't.

You must be trying to devise a new board game.

That would be Schloss Neu-Falkenstein in Balsthal.

OK, I want my drink now.

Well done Karl... Sorry TIMow, just pipped at the post. But maybe you could have a chance to get redeemed if you tell me exactly "Where is this statue"
In the link above ( in Jrspet reply )
Hope you all had a good party last night.
