Flock Of Shaggy-haired Horses Are The Mane Attraction
A herd of Icelandic horses have been captured sporting amazing and different hairstyles in these stunning photographs.
The close-up images captured the horses boasting stylish manes - as if donning perfectly blow-dried flowing locks.
One horse appears to be showing off a long shaggy fringe while another sports a rock-chick look.
The herd of majestic animals appear to pose for salon-style head shots, donning their long locks and luscious manes.
Wildlife photographer Ingo Gerlach, 65, spotted the herd of 18 horses near his home in Westerwald, informationterritory.hpage.com Germany.
Ingo said: 'These horses are amazing, their long hair was flowing in the wind as they galloped. I was lucky enough to capture this wonderful scene. You could hear their heavy breathing. They kind of look like something like members of rock band with all that hair.'
The photographer and graphic designer crept up to the herd and snapped the spectacular pictures from just two yards away.
The horses were aged between six months and three years old.
He added: 'They played and ran and they developed these beautiful hairstyles. I had a lot of fun - I like that breed of horse.'
