Horses on Parade: Checkerboard Rumps

Horses on Parade in Paris Invalides, Paris ~ October 19, 2008

Horses on Parade in Paris It's decorative, but I don't know why they do it. I saw horses at St-Michel in Paris a few years ago with the same pattern. They were also on parade. In the second case, it seemed as though they were escorting some dignitary. On October 19, 2008, they were part of a police exibition with all sorts of interactive events taking place.

Note: It's called quartermarking, and VP found the answer. Check out the comments on his post.

Ha! I have never noticed anything like that before. Interesting. Hope it didn't cause pain to the horsies.

First time I see these 'decorations' on the horse's back!

You made me laugh at "Blogging is dangerously addictive"! :-)
