    Question

    ...and what is up with that horse's feet???
    A friend told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.

    Cute. I see a horse's feet that need trimming, but not badly. Based on the ice and snow in the picture, this has got to be winter. The soles of MY horse's feet look like that in winter for some reason, he's 100% sound and gets trims every 6 weeks from a great farrier without fail. If this thread is still alive tomorrow I'll take a picture.

    Great pic though!! Trust COTHers to see the flaws first!

    Well, that's a hoof picture from an angle I haven't seen tried before.....



    Interesting but definitely has to have some camera angle distortion there.

    High speed photography and cute horse, I wonder if he is trained to hold a foot up like that. I suspect that was not just a $100 point and shoot camera.

    Maybe he's got a smart phone with the take-a-photo-backwards-of-yourself feature, so he can post to twitter and instagram how much weight he's lost lately, or do we like his new hair color.

    Looks to me like the photographer got down on the ground to take a photo of the horse's feet after the farrier took off the shoe, and before its been trimmed up, and the horse raised his foot and maybe even laughing the person took the photo. The foot looks like he just had his shoe taken off. Its a fun photo.

    By definition, the camera survived.

    Or at least the camera card did.
