One of the "Horse Fever" horses


We've posted a photo of this horse before. It is one of the 55 plus "Horse Fever" horses in and around Ocala; and is located in the downtown square. "Horse Fever" horses celebrate Ocala's status as "Horse capitol of the world."

I really like the horse and the way you photographed it.

The way the butterfly is painted on the horse's face is very intriguing!
God bless you!

Wouldn't you love to spend an evening with the artists who created these horse fever horses listening to them talk about the experience of painting them?

That horse would be fine in my back garden ;-)

Spectacular! He certainly is a 'horse of a different color.'

Thanks for your comment d.d. on my photoblog. BUT... my dog, Frederik, did not like beeing calling a she :( I bought him 2 years ago - 3 years old - in a sort of society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. The previous owner had removed "the bells", but it does mean sex change *LOL* Besides, I gave a comment on your ref. of your own dog :-D

It's well-painted and fun to look at. You placed got the angle beautifully with that background. I love how the color of the building and trees work with the painted horse.

Nice close-up. Just horsing around.

These horses are so much fun. Fifty-five is a LOT of painted horses! Have you photographed them all?

Bibi said...

I'd really, really like to paint one of these!

I must remember to send you some of the ones we had exhibited here at the Museum of Natural History when they did a horse themed exhibit

When I went with Sarah to take Lorelei to the library, right inside the kid's section was a horse similar to this. She loved it.

Love these colorful horses, even better than the real ones - this one can't throw me off.
