I have seen other painted animals like this. In West Hartford, there have been a couple of fund-raising events organized around painting cows. Was this one part of an Ocala fund-raiser?

Love the Painted Pony! Regarding your question, yes Atalaya mountain is part of the Sangre De Cristos.

Jacob, thanks for your kind comments on my fountain photo. I have been holding that one for a month for theme day.

But to your post today, I was very surprised on my first trip to FL years ago the number of horse farms. I love these painted horses and really enjoy when you post them.

We have giraffes in our town, or did, and for the life of me I cannot remember the story behind them.

I was wondering where all those painted horses came from.... :)

I love her dark chocolate boots, matching with her make-up and mascara! I will try this new fashion.

I do like those painted horses. This one is so colorful!

Re your comments on the Boca Resort: Yes, I have stayed there. The hotel is now part of the Hilton group and we used some of our "points" for a weekend stay. However, our room was in the older section of the hotel which has not been fully rennovated. The windows and bathrooms were old, there were ants in the room... so not all it's cracked up to be. But it still is a nice old-style resort.

Like that sculpture... colorful.

I like the paint job on this one! Very bright and abstract. Great shot with the warm light.

It's interesting how they can take so many different colors and put them together on a horse and make them work!

Lois said...

I just love it when you post a picture of one of the painted horses!

Francisca said...

EG is very funny! Didn't this whole painting animal trend start with cows? What does the "wire to wire" on the sign mean, Jacob?

I LOVE it! A few years ago St. Paul had painted dinosaurs but I much prefer this beauty!
