So imperfect pictures it is!
A couple of years ago I took some pictures of parts of a horses hoof that were trimmed off by the farrier (and apparently I didn't blog about it). And then I took some pictures of a tooth cap that I found one day in the arena footing.
Last week I finally got around to something I had been wanting to do for a while.
A horse chestnut!
I managed to peel a good sample off of Cisco two nights previous. This wasn't my first attempt at this - I've taken many pieces of chestnuts home in my coat pocket. However, I usually forgot about them and by the time I remembered it had dried and shriveled up.
The pictures left me a bit disappointed.
You know how they say that a horse's chestnut is like a fingerprint? Everyone is different?
I expected to see lines and formations that would be noticeably different from another one.
But no. It just looked like a grey chunk of something keratin-y.
Maybe I need to apply an ink pad to it.
