Horses have belly buttons!

A few days ago, I made a startling discovery while grooming my horse: On the underside of his belly, about four inches ahead of his sheath, is a round, flat, button-like "growth."

At first I thought it was dirt, but of course it didn't come off. And then it occurred to me where it was and what it resembled, and it hit me.

I looked it up online, and found a blog post from another horse owner who discovered her horse's belly button. She even crawled underneath to take a picture of it! Of course, that inspired me to do the same, so here's a glimpse of Panama's belly button:

As the other blogger noted, this shouldn't be a surprise, but I'd never thought about it before. Too funny!
