Saturday is PhoBlog Day! Coiffed Horses!

Have you all seen these already?  I just love them!

The photographer, Julian Wolkenstein, used their real manes and forelocks.  He had a stylist work for hours on these very patient horses.  The dreamy quality makes you think these are wigs superimposed upon a headshot of a horse.  But, they aren’t.  These are real horses and their real hair.  Fun!

Saturday is PhoBlog Day! Some Photo Blog with your morning Coffee! Phoblofee.

Saturday is PhoBlog day!  I’m still trying to figure out a combination word for Photo/Blog/Coffee.  Do you have an idea?

OK, onward to our photos!  Today, I pulled entirely from the Internet.  I didn’t have any good shots from around here.

1)  This is a photo from 1901.  The inscription says, “Linus, horse with long mane and tail at Pan-American Exposition- Buffalo, N.Y. 1901.
Sold to Frank E. Bostock and taken to England.”   Some other internet fan did some research and sadly, this horse broke his hip during his travels and they think he died in 1906 in Australia.  I’d sure love to know what kind of genetic mutation (or very careful handling) allowed him to grow such lovely hair.  I think I smell a future blog topic brewing…

2)  This pic is of a Zorse.  They always fascinate me.  However, I have heard that any cross between equine and zebra is pretty rank.  Hmmmmm, another blog topic brewing…

3)  This pic is of a Zule or Zonkey. It is a cross between a donkey and a zebra.  I actually like Zule better because it reminds me of something from GHOSTBUSTERS.

4)  I thought this was very pretty.  It is a butterfly with see-through wings.  A great image for Spring!

Enjoy and have a great weekend!  Check back tomorrow!
