Stepless In Seattle

It Ill Behooves Them

A Seattle designer has come up with the ultimate gadget for people who would like to be taller and more graceful - horse leg extensions. They're made of steel, cable, foam, and rigid plastic cost just £500 a pair - or £665 for spring loaded hooves for those requiring a little extra bounce.

FOOTNOTE: Yay or neigh.

Here in Härnösand I've seen a couple of people with kangaroo metal leg extensions jumping about. Now that's something I can understand.

Kinda like stilletous for horses.

Leesa said...

I am confused - do these extentions make horses look better?

Now I've heard pf everything! LOL! How on earth could something like this make you more graceful??? And would you always have to wear slacks if you are a woman?

If they actually made walking more comfortable, MAYBE I could see it, but if you're short, you're short. I realize that people used to put (maybe still do put) lifts in their shoes, but when they take their shoes off, they are still pint size. Oh well...

P.S. If it could make me dance like Ginger Rogers, then bring it on! However, I would probably end up clomping around like Mr. Ed! ;-)

That should put a 'spring in their step'! But what about humble stilts?

I can play a bit today because I have a day off - until the missus gives me some jobs! Keeping my head low for now! ~ Eddie

Neigh. Although I know Seattle very well, I am a proud fan of short stature. This device certainly couldn't be used in the city itself, because just about every street is a steep uphill or downhill trek. Often you will see a sharp dressed business person in running shoes.

If I was 6 inches taller I'd be the right weight - yes please for horse extensions

Does that come with or without a free gelding?

Could you possibly capture that with your lens so we can actually see that contraption? Wow!
