Recently Christopher Joll, late of The Life Guards, managed to photograph together the two front hooves of Marengo. Both are featured in our 200 objects but they are not together.

See http://waterloo200.org/200-object/marengos-hoof-snuffbox/  and http://waterloo200.org/200-object/horses-hoof-snuff-mill/

The photograph shows the hooves and are in size and shape identical although the colour is different, which is normal particularly as Marengo was a grey and patina of hooves of the same horse always differ.  Christopher Joll is intending to publish a book on such interesting items entitled “Brittania’s Spoils”.  Something to look out for.
