When I was a kid I thought that foal's soft hooves were the coolest thing ever. Now as an adult & a mother, I just think that mother nature is pretty wise.
Hippomanes my grandpa always called moonstones and to this day swears they are a sign of good luck and a horse with great potential. I've only seen a few over the years. Found one with Merit, hope my grandpa's silly old theory proves true. From what I was told as a kid, they are a collection of fetal urine that forms a stone of sorts. The few I've seen looked & felt similar to liver. Dark brownish red & rubbery.
