Horses by Andrew McGibbon

.



Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1981 Andrew McGibbon is fine art commercial photographer, now based in Durban. With over a decade of experience, he is well equiped for any situation and has a great team around him. His imagery is bright, clean and possibly even happy, all of which lend to his distinctive style and treatment. He is at heart a romantic and values imagination and emotion over rationality when creating. He believes that if If you over-plan a photograph or try achieve an exact image you have in your mind, you remove the the space for magic and mystery.

The Diving Horse

.


A diving horse is an attraction that was popular in the mid 1880s, in which a horse would dive into a pool of water, sometimes from as high as 60 feet up.
The shows received very strong criticisms of animal rights abuses, which contributed to the decline of its popularity after WW2. The horses sometimes dived four times a day, seven days a week. There are allegations of using prods, electrical jolts, and trap doors to get unwilling horses to dive.

Horses of the Civil War

.



Many a fighting man had one or more favorite mounts, entitled to bountiful corn and fodder, careful grooming, and a name of its own. One clause in the surrender terms at Appomattox in 1865 puzzled some people: every Confederate cavalryman was entitled to take his horse home with him. This provision, insisted on by Lee, was accepted by Grant when he was told that once they returned to civilian life, former soldiers wouldn't be able to plant spring crops without their war horses.

Gnou

.


The wildebeest, also called the gnu or "water buffalo", is an antelope of the genus Connochaetes. It is a hooved mammal. Wildebeest is Dutch for "wild beast" or "wild cattle" in Afrikaans, while Connochaetes derives from the Greek words konnos and khaite. The name "gnu" originates from the Khoikhoi name for these animals, "gnou".
