Ocala horse statues






Being the horse capital of the world, Ocala has lots of horses and horse farms.  Ocala also has hundreds of horse statues.  Here are just a few.  The first three are located near to the community in which we live.  The last two you may recognize as being part of the "Horse Fever" project.

Oh, I am a horse lover and had two for years, but I think I told you that. These statues are awesome!! I love them all!! Thanks, as always, Lowell, for sharing the fun and the beauty! Hope your weekend is going well!

These statues have real character, Lowell.

You could probably start up a blog devoted to nothing but Ocala horses and horse statues.

These are real beauties...but I suppose if you have the wherewithal to own horses in the Horse Capital of the World (I'm sure there's no hyperbole here!), it makes sense that you're not going to fool around with cheap plaster casts.

I cannot imagine having a horse statue on my front lawn even though I live in a horsy part of Ontario.

That 'horse fever' project is pretty neat. Not a big horse guy {maybe a horse's a**) but I quite like it. We had a lighthouse project that can still be found sprinkled about our city.

Love the arty 'project' horses Lowell.. at first glance I thought the speckled horse was filled with jelly babies :)

I like those horse fever horses, Lowell!
We have 2 fully funded school boards in Ontario - one public and one Catholic. All the other religious groups have to se up their own private schools if they want a particular slant to education.

I would really like to have one of these to paint, collage, or artsy-up.

Dear Lowell - Excuse me for not having visited you sooner in spite of your kind and supposrtive comment on my last post and private email. Have you read books to your heart’s content? I had felt worn our under the typical sultry weather of Japanese summer but I’m getting more in fit as mornings and evenings get cooler.

Each horse statue is lovely, but my favorite is the second one, he’s so cute.

You posted a lot while I was absent. I enjoyed blog hopping of yours, marveling at your fabulous photos. Enjoy the rest of summer.
