“After” grooming photos of APHA stallion, Good N Lazy (Jack). It’s the same horse, but he looks 100 per cent more attractive with his mane neatly banded, his face clipped, and a fresh bath. Jack was blanketed consistently in the summer so his coat is sleek, shiny and unfaded by the sun. These photos were taken professionally, as he is standing at stud to the public. Good photos are an important part of selling your stallion’s services.
Jack is also wearing a tail extension, which is very common in the show pen for stock breeds. He is wearing clean, good quality tack; a show halter was used for some of the photos, and in others a bosal and show saddle since Jack is being promoted as a performance horse. All of these small details are important if you want to compete, sell your horse, or promote your stallion. Good grooming can make your good horse look even better. Poor grooming can make a nice horse look horrible. Photo by M. Szabo Photography.
