So much sass and all that jazz! After spending the day apart, stallions Golden Boy and Show Stopper had to check if their rank was still the same. There was no aggression or dangerous behavior but a LOT of sass from both parties ;) After a few arguments things settled and the boss was still the boss.. Can you guess which one?
After finishing the session with Golden Boy it was time for the second Gypsy Cob - Show Stopper. A gorgeous white and redish brown stallion with dreamy long mane and forelock. He was such a sensitive, sweet and kind creature. Seeing him running proud and strong in the field was absolutely wonderful! I hope I have done him justice with this photo but I am afraid he is even more amazing in real life..
Thank you Jill, for making him shine like a diamond! ✨
Last week I was looking for models to expand my portfolio. I was completely overwhelmed by your response and didn't realize how many gorgeous horses we have near the Oslo area! Eager to get started I headed out to Sarpsborg yesterday - a 90 minute drive from the capital - where I met with Jill and her Gypsy Cob stallions. I entered the stables and first saw Golden Boy, a gorgeous 7 year old buckskin with an incredible color and long, thick black mane and forelock.
Since we were photographing action shots in the sunset it was natural to start with the darkest horse and after setting up some temporary fences to guide Golden Boy we were ready to go! I could quickly see why this horse is so special, with his absolutely exemplary canter. I could get lost in his movements and forget about time and space for a minute. Just see for yourself :)
Big thanks to Jill for taking hours to groom and prepare these superstars. I'm forever grateful!
