Two police horses were a bit spooked for a second here, near the Citadel.
The horses do well in disturbances on the ground, but I think here they were distracted by the unusual movement above them.
City workers on moving cranes and tall ladders were putting up big decorations for the upcoming Light Festival.
Hey, Camera-Critter folks, what's with the long hair on these horses' fetlocks and lower legs?
I thought only draft horses have such "feather." No?
Please click on the photo to get a closer view.
The horses peacefully passed the old gate of the Tower of David and just beyond, walked through the gate of the old Kishle police station.
Just about everything is old in the wonderful Old City.
UPDATE Jan. 4, 2014: Willow solves the mystery and tells us these are Friesian horses! See her comment below. Thanks Willow.
