Alpo Posted February 1 Share Posted February 1 (edited) What is the purpose of the yellow things on the horse's front legs? I've seen pictures of race horses with what looks like a rolled up towel tucked underneath the strap that goes across their nose. And I've been told that that's because they're afraid of their feet. They see their feet out in front of them when they are running and it spooks them. So that thing on their nose prevents them from seeing their feet. It blocks their vision. I suppose those could be leg warmers, like on a girl from the '80s doing aerobics. But what is their purpose?
