How Swamp Folk walk...

A discussion on the Frothers forum prompted me to go out and find some indication about how Swamp Folk might walk. This is what I found:

Draft Horse

From the works of Eadweard Muybridge. I have two books that collect some of his stop motion photography; one is for his human subjects, the other for animals.

There used to be a question as to whether all a horse's hooves really left the ground when it gallops. Muybridge was able to conclusively prove that they do. Previously it had been in dispute.
