Once upon at time...a present for George Washington

Well, it is autumn and the bees only can work any hours every short day, and I have to speak (charlatan) and speak...
This is an Spanish horse, similar to the horse that the Spanish King Charles III sent to George Washington when the Independence.

Wow, what a beauty.  Nothing on earth more majestic than a good looking horse.  I cannot believe how thick and full the forelock and mane are, the dapples are so pronounced.  Is this your horse?  It looks like it would be very comfortable to ride, quite stocky eh?  You say it is "Spanish".  Is it a certain breed, or is it simply "Spanish" breed.  Unknown to me.  Beautiful though, gotta say that.  Great day.

It is a race developed in Jerez (Sherry) in Cadiz, where the fine wine, the brave bulls, and the fair. The horse is not mine. I would like, but a horse needs time, dedication, perhaps in the future...
The horse you can see in the photo is called Platón (Plato), like the Greek philosopher, and is expensive...mucho...really majestic, as you said.
This photo that I have taken from the Real Escuela de Arte Ecuestre web can give you an idea about the "feria" (Spanish fair).

Very  nice pic, I  love the horses, all breeds have their own piece of beauty.  Great day. Cindi
