Where on Earth did he get it???

I was out in the yard with Gabe today, and he disappeared around the corner of the house for a few moments. He reappeared with an entire horse hoof in his mouth. I might not have been able to tell what it was right off the bat, but there was still a shoe attached to it.

I have no idea where such a thing would have come from.

All I can think is maybe there was a horse buried on the land I live on sometime before the 1960s (when the house was built)?

I know. Weird, right? He didn't want to let go of it, either. He really wanted that hoof.

That IS creepy. Either that or there is paraplegic horse hobbling around your neighborhood. Maybe it is a ghost horse looking for his missing hoof. Sorry, I get carried away sometime.

Oh, God. Now I'm going to be worried about an angry ghost horse coming after my dog in the middle of the night.

What would also be really creepy is if he disappears again while you are out with him and brings back another hoof, or maybe a rib, or a tail or another horse part!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Umm how old did it look? Was there still "stuff" inside it or just the hard shell with a shoe nailed to it??

That is super bizarre and kinda gross, have you had a look if he dug a hole anywhere?

BTW they love eating hoof, mine get so excited when the farrier shows up

He will probably go back to the spot where he found it. Follow him around and see what else is out there...... And....keep us posted, nice mystery.
