This image of some horses running from their day job to their evening meal is Sweet Poppies in Tubac, Arizona. I call this one “I Can Hear The Dinner Bell” is a 16″ x 24″ on a 1 1/2″ canvas wrap.
Sweet Poppies is located at 19 Tubac Road, Tubac, AZ. They are next to Shelby’s Restaurant just across the bridge. Sweet Poppies also carries my unframed prints, my Horse and Tucson Barrio Door greeting cards. You will love shopping at Sweet Poppies as they have many unique gift and home decor items. Then have a lovely lunch or dinner at Shelby’s.
Be sure to visit the Tubac Presidio Historic State Park on you trip. They have a wonderful self-guided tour that takes you back to the time of the Spanish explorers. Check out their website here. Tubac Park has many interesting events during the year. They offer art exhibits, book signings, historical events and have a well stocked gift shop. They stock my Boss Mare Canvas mouse pads, along with my other mouse pads and horse t-shirts. These would made wonderful Christmas presents!
The mare on the left is Pilar and is owned by Silke Schneider of Silver City, NM. The mare on the right is Sabana and she is a Wilbur Cruce Spanish Barb foundation mare. She was owned by the Dixon’s of St. David, AZ. This image was taken in early May in 2009. Sadly, Sabana passed in 2011. The Dragoon mountains are in the background.
