Frisbee Animals
Allison, who runs an ultimate frisbee company in Nottingham, just sent in these pictures of frisbee-playing animals. First we have Frisbee Croc.

Yeah, Frisbee Croc is a pretty obvious fake, but it's a cool photoshop nevertheless. The image comes from the Northern Territory Ultimate Frisbee site. Next we have Frisbee Horse.

As far as I can tell, these Frisbee Horse pictures are real. The name of the horse is Namoniet. He's an Egyptian Arabian Stallion trained by Jay Evans. Reportedly Namoniet loves to catch frisbees. The challenge is getting him to give them back. I'd love to show up at a park on a weekend where guys are playing frisbee with their dogs, challenge them to a match, and then bring out my frisbee-playing horse.

yes, it's very likely the pix are real. my girlfriend has a horse that as a colt, used to throw his feed bowl up into the air, catch it, and then run around the paddock as if his tail were on fire.

he would do this repeatedly, altho i don't recall if he allowed anyone else to 'play' or not!

I have a few horses and they play with their feed buckets too, but those pictures could be fake. Horses run like that when excited or chasing one another. But I really think those pictures are real, its somewhat easy to train a horse to do that.
