DSC_9308kopie Jumper, originally uploaded by Ton van der Weerden.

Ton van der Weerden was in the right place at the right time. The place was the North Brabant region of Holland and the time was a split second when a huge Brabant draft horse (one of the the foundation breeds for American Belgian) took a flying leap over a two-strand wire fence.

Did he make it? Did he see the top strand at all? Ton's not telling.

But this horse got some air under him. He probably could have just leaned on the wire and stepped over it.

Thanks, Ton!

We must watch the same groups on Flickr, sometimes I see these before you post them and sometimes after. =)

This looks fake.

Anonymous, why don't you explain what you mean? What looks fake about it? And tell us who you are while you're at it!

This is probably the coolest picture I have ever seen!!! I agree with Fran... "anonymous" I guess you don't own horses or even a horse... because this is not a fake.
