Доспехи лошадиные {je1269}
Horse armour »
War horses needed to be protected in battle. This brightly coloured armour was worn 100 years ago by a horse in the Mahdist army. Men would have worn this kind of armour as well as their horses.

Though it could be pierced by bullets, it softens blows from hand weapons, and protects from poison arrows. A headpiece of metal and cloth would complete the horse's magnificent outfit.
