They really are everywhere in Ocala, aren't they?

I dunno, aren't his legs and nostrils kind of out of proportion? I really don't know enough about horses to tell.

Is this a sculpture of a particular horse?

I suppose that I'm just writing a duplicate, but is this a sculpture of a particular horse?

Again a beautiful sky and white puffy clouds in the background sets off this image - nice.

A strange statue, but a very good symbol for our horse Capital.

I am inclined to think like Hilda, but what do I know? He is definitely a beauty, though.

Well, horses have to shop, too.

Is it the angle or does that horse have a very long neck?

EG Wow said...

Is it full size? Very statuesque. :)

He does look magnificent and so proud! I like those white fluffy clouds behind him.

Magnificent sculpture ... horses are so regal looking

Beautiful shot of the horse sculpture Jacob. I guess it's suposed to be a stylized horse as it seems to me the neck is way too long. But then, I'm used to Arizona horses. Maybe Florida horses stick their necks out more.:)

JM said...

The artists missed this one, it's not painted! :-)

A bit difficult to imagine an outdoor mall. Obviously, such a construct will make a lot more sense in the kind of climate you're enjoying.

Small City Scenes said...

I guess that should be loud not lout....no doubt.

And I am proud.
It's something that
I vowed.

Maybe in a crowd. MB
