Sustainable Madness: Fort King Festival
This is a Spanish Conquistador. His horse's name is Dixie, I forgot his name... He was incredibly knowledgeable in the history of the different conquistadors and what kinds and numbers of horses they brought with them. Dixie is a decendant of the Florida Cracker horses, which are believed to be decendants of the Conquistador's horses that were left here in Florida.The blog also mentions The Old Florida Festival in Naples. Which I'm informed has been moved from November 2010 to March 19-20. It always one of my favorite time-line type events. And how could I not like the publicity photos?
