2012 may be winding down, but that won't stop us from gawking at this behind-the-scenes video from the shoot for the Men of Swedish Nobility calendar. In fact, we pledge to spend the month of December and whatever's left of 2012 enjoying these hard-bodied men posing regally on horses, lathering them up and looking distinguished.

Who said that going shirtless was low-rent? If the men of Swedish nobility do it, and document such actions with a calendar, then it's appropriate behavior for all men with rock-hard abs! Okay, so these are not real Swedish nobles, they're models and athletes, but who cares. They are HAWT!
