Check out this amazing skull!
This horse suffered from a severe trauma while it was alive. Not sure what happened for certain but I’d bet it was kicked by another horse. No clue what else could really cause that kind of damage and it’s really amazing that this animal wasn’t killed instantly but all of the breaks show signs of healing and growth of new bone.
Despite all that, I think in the long run that injury was probably what caused the death of this animal because it wasn’t totally healed (still a large hole above the eye socket) when it died and it died in its prime based on the tooth wear.
I’m absolutely smitten with this incredible skull and very happy to have it in my collection. More pics to come soon!
