Sometimes I take my skulls for outings…
This is that miniature horse I posted about a while back. Finally finished! Took him with me to visit my dad for the weekend and show him off. :)

Miniature Horse on the left and a Miniature Donkey on the right. Both were quite old as evidenced by the fused sutures in the skulls and wear on the teeth.

Here’s an idea of how small the little miniature horse skull is. He’s still in the degreaser but coming along nicely.

Here’s another one to mark off the Holy Grail List! It’s a Miniature Horse! But not just any miniature horse skull.

This is a really unique and special piece. Not only did this little guy have some very strange teeth but he also had a rather tragic death. One day not too long ago, he was grazing in his pasture with other mini horses, llamas, regular-sized horses, and a big Percheron. Everything was peachy-keen until this other little miniature horse decided to be a bit of a prick. He snuck up behind the Percheron and bit him. Naturally, the big draft horse reacted violently and kicked out at the mini horse that bit him, only to accidentally clock this one right in the head, killing him instantly. Wrong place at the wrong time. The biter lived to bite another day.

I’ve never seen another skull like this and I’m just over the moon to have him in my collection. He’s one of my new favorites and I hope to treasure him for many years to come. More pics once he’s cleaned up, including some comparison shots next to my big draft horse skull.
