Horses does a fashion shoot. Nobody dies.

Postby Xanthoria » Thu Mar 22, 2018 4:47 am

Why, one wonders, are fashion shoots with horses always so redonkulous? From the improbable footwear to the silk chiffon frocks and lack of approved headgear, they all seem daft.

Well, they're daft because "why not"!

Mr Xan needed a horse for a spring fashion shoot so I scraped the mud off the baby brontosaurus last minute and we applied a model to him and dragged him into a field with stylist, photog and hair/makeup crew. He really didn't mind the conveyor belt of treats going in his mouth, and the model only fell off once! Not that he noticed... No Valentino skirts were harmed in the making of these shots, although the stylist had a cardiac event at all the mud.

How cool!!! I love that your horse looks good in the pics. So often you see them with the dorky face on, or ears right back etc because the photographer doesn't care about the horse. But these are great :)

Great photos, and your horse looks very unconcerned (and beautiful!).

At least the model's wearing closed toe shoes? Lol.
Your boy looks like a good sport. Cookies and grass go a long ways.

How much horse hair had to be photoshopped off the clothes? :lol:

Between these and your beach photos, I think we can say that Baby B looks like a super model!

What, no pics of the model plonked into the mud?

Your handsome boy will make clipping a new fashion statement ;)

Well you know there was a bit of photoshop to get all the ears UP because I insisted! Not on the one with the blue dress tho - that one was perfect :)

Also on the red dress one I was standing behind him trying to stop him eating grass. :lol: I obviously got photoshopped out, but you can see he's reaching....

I wish I had a pic of her falling! It's quite far, falling downhill off a 17.1h horse.... But she was actually VERY game and I just legged her right back up.

I wish I'd clipped him out totally now but he lives out - a chaser clip will have to do. I told the photog it was like getting your edges done ;)

I have to say it was the model's first fashion shoot and the stylist was micromanaging her a bit IMO. So, fair play, she done good. She was only 15! But yeah... she looks a bit uncomfortable... :lol:

What a handsome and good boy he is! But I’m wondering if he was doing some wine tasting. That last pic looks Like he’s feeling pretty mellow.

Ah, fun.

The girl is only 15? Wow.

One of my guys was once part of a fashion shoot, but he was just background. Not co-star!
