    I bought this piece locally for $50.00: interesting enough, it's not that old. It was made by a company called "EvenFlo", and it has a 1-800 number embossed on the top (I tried the number, it's now an adult talk line).
    It's fully functional: basically I could reinstall it in just a few minutes, all the piping is still connected. The inner workings are solid brass, and those too are fully functional. Lastly, the decorative horse head is not only on the front, but also on the back.
    I am quite certain this was a custom made piece for someone's horse ranch: its way to high end for the run of the mill water spouts.
    If your wonder what it's mounted to, that is a Torck Converter off of a tracker: I found it in the ditch half barried, covered in a ton of rust and full of oil. I took it home and proceeded to restore it (it was the cleaning project from hell!). I painted it metalic bronz and now it's a pedestal for my water spout.
    I have taken up the hobby of refurbishing items that others throw away, and that happens allot where I live!

      A Roomba is one of those disc-shaped self-powered vacuum cleaners that run around the floor all by themselves. You just let them go and eventually they clean all the floor (sort of). Your cat will love it.
