Image of the Week: Just horsin' around

Horse with skin painted showing bones and muscles

This isn’t something you see everyday! But you can find it under “Horses” in the Animal Science Image Gallery.

The skin of this horse was painted with non-toxic paint to show some of the muscles and bones that are involved in movement. This demonstration was done during a public open house at the University of California.

Search for, download or submit images to the Gallery at: www.animalimagegallery.org. There is no charge to download or submit images if you are an ASAS member.
