I have a big ol’ Post-It note on my desktop.

It is filled with ‘links for future stories’ – ideas that I don’t have time to pursue when they come across my desk but I don’t want to forget that I once knew about whatever it was…  I cut and paste the information on a massive Post-It and then go back whenever I am looking for a story.

Today, I was browsing the Post-it and saw this link:

Hmmmm.  I totally forgot where I got it or what it was.

So I clicked it, of course.

This is what I saw…

OMG!  Look at those healthy and intelligent faces!!  I had to know more!

Look a those gawjus faces!  Handsome boys!

Just looking at this photo, I made my own personality profile of each:

The top one is the fun one.  He is fairly confident but also the joker.

The middle one is the sensible and wise horse.  The others go to him for security.

The bottom one is the fussiest of the bunch.  He is also the hottest.

Of course, I have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about – but how could you not come to conclusions with such fabulous imagery?!


There isn’t a lot of information on the site.  But, I think this lucky woman has some land in North Western California.  (It is wet and a bit remote over there, but beautiful…).

Anyway, on this land, it appears that she hosts two of her own Friesian stallions (who are half brothers), and another stallion – for her friend.

All three run in a bachelor herd and are best friends.

Wow.  They run free on her property.

Free Friesian Flowing Floatingly.

Growing up healthy, loved and mannered.

Oh, and the lucky part for us is that she is really, really good with a camera.

So, for this Sunday, I thought we could all OOOOOOOOOOH and AAAAHHHHHHHHHH over these boys.

I saw the button that asks the reader to subscribe because she ‘adds photos often’…

I smiled to myself.  Kinda like something you could slip into your mare barn to get them all riled up.

These boys are so very, very pretty.

Great job, Forest Boyz!

Beautiful horses, kept beautifully and photographed beautifully.

My fav.

    I absolutely fell in love with these boys and the photography! Pictures capture the majesty of the Forest BOYS! Oh, my, just breathtaking! The majesty! Made my day!

    When stallions have no mares around, they are sociable animals and form herds and get along fine. Think of the Lipizzan stallions of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. There are dozens of stallions there and they have no problem with them. Once they go to stud at Piber or Lipizza, they cannot return to the riding school because they’ve gotten that sweet taste of sex, and there is no going back after that. These boys are beautiful and the photos are awesome!

    I think she brought one of her beautiful boys to a Mark Rashid clinic a few years ago. What was more stunning than their drop dead good looks, was he was a total gentleman. She’d only had a few rides on him and he acted like a pro! Very beautiful soul in such a stunning body.
