Horse Fever, a public art project begun in 2001, has now produced well over 50 life-size painted horses which can be found in areas all over town. Sponsored by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' and Owners' Association, this project caught the public's imagination and has raised over $1 million for charity.
The painted horses were decorated by local and regional artists and many, if not all, have names, which I can't remember.
The horse pictured is one of four standing on the corners of the town square in the old downtown area. In days to come, I'll post other photos of other of these beauties found in other locations.
