I have always loved art and I can honestly say I appreciate the artists. Their whole goal is to be creative and being creative is a different form of freedom & expression.
We have a lot of livestock in Saskatchewan and seeing a pasture full of these horses would be amazing. Maybe we need a new category for the Canadian Western Agribition livestock classes. Most decorative trim?
I found this story in Oddity Central.
British artist Melody Cannon has a very interesting job – she gives horses free-hand artistic haircuts at JMC Equestrian Driving & Custom Clipping in Bury, Greater Manchester. For the past three years, she has been using her unique talent to clip their body hair into beautiful works of art.
At first, Melody started by carving simple patterns – like stars, hearts, and bees – into her clients’ shiny coats. But as the popularity of her designs grew, she started doing more elaborate, full-coat designs, all freehand, without the use of stencils. The unusual haircuts not only help the horses stand out of, but the frequent clipping is supposedly also good for them because it helps prevent the fur from matting.
Anybody you know that does this kind of work?
