Horsefeathers

There’s so much to see at Fuengirola’s annual Feria (fair). To be clear, there’s more than one annual fair in Fuengirola. This week’s annual event is to honour the Virgin of the Rosary. She was processed (that’s pro-CEST as opposed to PRAH-cest) from the church this week. I’ve seen her before and wanted instead to see the horses and costumes as they arrived at the fairgrounds. Here, today, are the horses (mostly).
