wow! thanks notcot for this one. this is the festival of luminarias in san bartolomé de pinares, which is a small village in central spain. this is a celebration for saint anthony, the patron saint of animal. it symbolizes a cleansing that date back to many years ago, possibly around the time of the black death pandemic. i have tons of respect for horses and their owners. they are without a doubt one of the beautiful creatures on this planet.
