I have some stables on my photo list. You have inspired me. These are unique and quite lovely.

They do take this horse thing seriously in Ocala. Nice shot.

Leif Hagen said...

Wow, Jacob, I'm a little surprised that Lois Anne let you buy that living room chandelier at the Fleet Farm store in Ocala, but for a horse lover like you, I guess it sure is special!

Don and Krise said...

Wow. I like the carved leaves especially.

Jarart said...

Perfect for my dining room!

Olivier said...

amusant et très kitch ;)

Bibi said...

Some people might think this kind of chandelier is chintzy, but I think it's great, and wouldn't mind having it... Crisp, clear photo.

VP said...

I'll take the Fifth on this.

Wolynski said...

Horse lover or not, this chandelier is hideous. Oops, hope it's not in your living room, in which case it's lovely.
Beautiful photo below.
I'm being spammed as well - have to do something about it.

Hilda said...

Not quite for me, but its lovely!

Marie said...

This is funny but it must be difficult to dust! We could say it's kitsch :-) I don't know if you use that term in English.

Small City Scenes said...

Interesting. One would certaintly have to have just the right setting for that. It really is quite nice. MB

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Interesting...but I wouldn't want to have to dust it.

Dan J. said...

Wow.
That um..... is something. I guess.... if you REALLY love horses... and I mean REALY love them. You might hang that up somewhere. It is for SURE unique... cuz I have NEVER seen anything like that before. ;-)

Nice shot Jacob.

Like I always say, horse people are born not made.

JM said...

Very original! Have never seen anything of the kind.

Daryl said...

Have you ever been to 21's downstairs bar? Well that candelier would fit in perfectly .. I bet if you Google it you'll see what I refer to!

Paula said...

I love horses but even this is a bit much for me. I can admire the work that went into it though. Is it in a club house?

lizziviggi said...

It is quite intricate... but as others have said, I wouldn't want the job of dusting it! My own chandelier is quite a feat to dust too, now that I think about it. Someday I'll post a picture of it so people can make fun of MY lighting choices! ;-)

Ole and Lena was at the kitchen table for the usual morning cup of coffee and listening to a weather report coming from the radio.
"There will be 3 to 5 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. All vehicles should be parked on the odd-numbered side of the streets today to facilitate snowplows," the radio voice declared.

"Oh, gosh, OK," said Ole, getting up, bundling up and heading outside to dutifully put his car on the odd-numbered side of the street.

Two days later, Ole and Lena were at morning coffee when the radio voice said:

"There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your vehicles on the even-numbered side of the streets."

Ole got up from his coffee as before. He bundled up, shuffled off, and put his car on the even-numbered side of the street.

A few days later, the couple was at the table when the radio voice declared:

"There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the ..." Just then, the power went out.

"Park it where?" Ole asked in the dark, "What should I do?"

"Aw, to heck with them, Ole," Lena said, "Don't worry about it today. Just leave the car in the garage."

Lois said...

I am at a loss for words!

tapirgal said...

. . . but you're hearing that from a person with a house full of tapirs. Go figure.

tapirgal said...

I think you would have to love horses a lot to hang this one. . . .

Los Angeles Suburbia said...

Great shot, Jacob! There is so much character to this, great textures, too.

Mo said...

Hmm different

cieldequimper said...

Mmmmmmmm: I'll take the Lalique. ;-)

Trillian said...

It's truly original...I wonder how is the furniture around!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - Funny. But you should be ashamed of yourself, telling these Norwegian jokes!

Bergson said...

in the stable, there are man's head on a lamp?


;-)

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Pretty nifty! :-D

Never seen one like that before, fun capture!

Andreea said...

:) This looks funny. I'm a horse lover but I think I'll pass on this. To lifelike for me :)
