Horse Fever horse - hiding in plain sight


This is one of the newer Horse Fever horses and is located in downtown Ocala, next to the Marion Theater.  I've not been able to find out exactly how many of these beautifully painted horses are gracing the Ocala community, but it must be close to 100 by this time.

Now that's a really beautiful one!

This one looks pretty good. West Hartford has painted cows. Some are nicely painted and are cool. More are tacky.

Aren't these amazing works of art? I love where this one is located especially with the moss hanging down from the trees...if that doesn't say Florida ... beautiful capture Lowell.

Beautifully photographed! This horse reminds me of the work of Bev Doolittle and her "Pinto" series of camouflaged horses.
Your comment on my site about the rocks with team logos made me laugh out loud and it's so true.

This is so beautiful! By the way, Lowell, I really love the logo you use on your copyright. Very nice!

Camouflaged for sure!

Oh. It's not a real horse? Hmmmm. Maybe I need to adjust my medications.

A very glossy looking horse indeed, almost looks like it's wearing a Spiderman mask?!

With those bright colors, I don't think he'll be able to hide anywhere.

Lovely. Did you see the seville snalis? They were great too.

Judy said...

Oh, I like!! Very pretty.

You're right, Lowell. Washington voted in Nov. to legalize that pesky old weed. Now the agency that will be in charge of sales is busy trying to devise standards and licensing costs, hire "experts," and figure out new regulations. Not to mention negotiating a standoff with the feds, who are on the other side of the fence on the matter. They hope to open the first retail outlets by the end of the year. Never thought I'd see this in my lifetime.

Beautiful, Lowell! I love these horses. Is that a graffiti pattern?

Wonderfully done!!

Art exhibits like this have become quite popular, haven't they? Usually, the pieces are auctioned off for charity after awhile. We had clowns in Sarasota years ago --- and it bombed in spite of this being a circus town. Apparently, many adults really dislike clowns.

I like the way you photographed and edited this to make it look kind of mysterious.

Love the way this intriguing sculpture is tucked amidst the greenery.
