    Default Scary ebay horse toy

    I ran across this today.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1800s-19th-C...item4d0974691d

    One of my favorite sellers but I have no relationship to them beyond that. If it stays at 99 cents I may buy it to give it a decent burial. The poor yak and buffalo look like they need to be euthanized as well.

    I can't imagine this having been a toy. Poor kid would have grown up terrified of large animals.

    I don't now; it's kind of cool in a surreal way. I think the eyes would freak my dogs out too much though.

    Poor thing needs to see a chiropractor ASAP.

    I also suspect ulcers. Look what they're feeding it!

    I think it looks more like a donkey than a horse. Still ugly though.

    I looked at the OP's picture and thought "meh, the eyes are kinda creepy. Not too bad though."

    I looked at this picture and I shuddered.
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.
