Sometimes things don't have to have a point - they just have to make you smile.

And these images of horses with hair extensions do just that.

Jockeying for position to be best-in-show, it was up to award winning advertising photographer Julian Wolkenstein to keep the supermodels of the equine world in check.



Julian hit on the idea of experimenting with horses' hair during a chat with a fellow advertising pal.

'The idea for these images came from a discussion with a friend who said, 'Hey wouldn't it be fun to shoot horses with big hair?',' says Sydney-born Julian, 36.

'It is important to do personal projects just for fun, not to sell anything, but just to remind you why you make images, but mostly, and simply, to make you smile.'

Acting on the discussion, Julian, who usually works to a specific client brief, decided to explore this personal project to its full potential, resulting in these striking and unforgettable images.

Putting the project into motion, Julian teamed up with prominent hair-stylist Acacio da Silva to whip the horses into shape.



'Each horse took around four hours to groom, with hair extensions being added by Acacio, and then when they were presented in front of the camera's and lights they would shake their heads, give a neigh and then ruffle up their hair,' said Julian - with a somewhat forced grin.

'To get them just right, with their hair all set and standing to attention was a bit of a battle.

'But the horses loved the grooming. The lights and camera, well, they were less taken with that.'

At first, Julian thought the shoot would be a quick affair.

'We initially thought how hard can this be? A couple of hours on each one,' he said.
