Looking to draw a horse with an ear net, fly mask or similar
... yeah, I know that sounds kooky. :D

But basically I'm looking for a nice reference photo (be it head, full body or action shot) of a horse wearing some sort of special "headgear" including but not limited to ear nets, fly masks, blinkers and circus/traditional decorations. However, don't bother with suggesting the basic Santa hat photo, because I have some weird aversion towards horses wearing Santa hats. :D

I'm going to use the photo for one of my practice drawings/paintings. I'll post the drawing online at least on (but not limited to) my personal blog, this forum and dA. I can send a hi-res scan to the person whose photo I've used if asked. I will not repost or otherwise use the original photo file without asking. Photographer will be credited with a name and a link if wanted.

If you could help, I'd appreciate it. TIA!

I gave a couple - I think one in particular could be very interesting for you :P

Keep in mind that none of these horses are mine, and are simply from the collection of my photographs over the years.

Here you have ear nets/bonnets -

Blinkers/draft gear -

And this is the one I said about earlier!

Feel free to use any or none of them. If you have anything else you'd like to draw, I can have a look through my things. I was actually looking for the photo of my mare wearing my dads hat, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Don't forget to check horse catalogs and pictures from competitions. You could google a ton of images.

Well I have a flymasked horse so I'll post a pic too. However, mine are nowhere near as good as the ones posted by Tracer!
