I forgot to post pics of this boy all finished up! This is another skull my awesome farrier brought for me. It’s from a Polish Arabian horse and he was only around four years old when he died of natural although unknown causes.

The dogs of the lady that owned him gnawed part of his left orbit and the tip of his nasal bones off but he’s in great shape other than that. Love those fangs!

Today I dusted and reorganized to make room for some new additions.

Another shot of Phineas Gage, this time out in the gorgeous crop of Showy Primroses in front of my house.

I finished cleaning Phineas Gage the Horse skull today!

I posted about him a while back but allow me to gush a little more. I got this skull from a guy in Wisconsin that found it at an auction so unfortunately I don’t know the animal’s history but my bet would be that it was kicked in the head by another horse. What’s amazing is that it survived this massive trauma, at least for long enough for all of the fractured bone to begin to heal.

Based on tooth wear this horse was still in its prime when it died and I’d imagine it finally succumbed to this incredible injury. There were still some gaping holes in its skull around the wound that had to be causing it some trouble. And when I was cleaning it that whole section of skull was loose.

Super in love with this skull and very glad to have it in my collection.
