Strong Horse at Tres Tombs Parade, Sant Andreu, Barcelona, Spain

Strong Horse at Tres Tombs Parade, Sant Andreu, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

I swear I had never seen such strong a horse although I am aware of morphology and breeds. This animal in the equine world would be the equivalent of a pro bodybuilder on growth hormones. Look at those legs, that's not only hair! And that in the background is not a cardboard rock. No, that was a huge stone on top of a sturdy cart. It makes no sense to force the beast to handle such a heavy load for such futile purpose but traditions are traditions and Tres Tombs parade is no less.

  1. I hope that the owners of this magnificent beast are good to it; traditions sometimes need to be rethought, don't you think?

  5. What a great photo's Carlos although i hope you don't mind me saying, but your pictures are so powerful, i don't think they need the extra effects.

    Anyway, i hope you have to pick up your award soon at rotterdamdailyphoto !

  6. Wow! That is an astonishing horse. How did you get the 'zooming' effect in the background?

    I don't know if that's the case here, but growth-promoting drugs are an issue on some show animal circuits.
