9:37 a.m.: Some of you have asked me to introduce the Boyz, so here we go. From left to right is Meike, Saphire & Menno. Meike and Menno are half-brothers, born on the same farm, 2 weeks apart. Meike was my Friesian stallion dream come true, and came to live with me when he was 6.5 months. I had an older retired ex-racehorse at the time, and I quickly learned that Meike needed a younger punching bag. Menno came to live with me when he was a year old, cause his owner had all mares and they were driving Menno crazy. So the two brothers were reunited. A year later, Saphire, who was owned by a friend of mine, had to move back to the city and did not want to geld him or keep him in a stable. So he came to live with me at 1 year old, and has been here ever since. Meike and Menno will be twelve this year, and Saphire will be 11 this month. I was eventually able to buy Menno when his owner decided to sell… and Saphire’s owner had decided that he can be a Forest Boy forever. So the three of them will live out their days together as stallions in a bachelor herd. I do not breed them… they don’t really know girls exist. I never had a stallion before, but I decided that if it wasn’t easy or fun, then I wouldn’t do it. But a bachelor herd WORKS! and they are very happy. I try to give them the best life I possibly can and I hope people can see that in the photos. I've been photographing them and documenting their lives together nearly every day for the past 11 years. I hope it encourages others to give their stallions better lives with companionship and freedom. 💕 #forestboyz #friesian #friesianstallion #friesiansofinstagram #stallion #horses #horsesofinstagram #equine #equinephotography #bestofequines #photooftheday #lsr_feature #humboldtcounty
