Is it a horse? Maybe, or maybe not

Exciting news spotted in the Guardian......

The so-called White Horse of Uffington - an ancient hill-figure carved into the Oxfordshire land - may not be a horse at all!

The story on the Guardian website today
One animal expert says if you study it, it looks more like a big dog, like, um, ah, guess what?


Retired vet Olaf Swarbrick made the suggestion in a letter to Veterinary Record.

There's a bit of hoo-ha going on as to whether it's a wolfhound, a greyhound, or a horse (like everyone said in the first place) but I'm going with greyhound.....Maybe we all had squarer faces when it was created some 3,000 years ago.
