He did a lot of whoa yelling, but if he'd really been pulling on the reins Shamrocks ears would have been up in front of the camera. :eyebrow:

Whining bitch doesn't know jack shit about nature. The horse and gator are enemies, Studly was protecting his herd. He even gave the gator a chance to scoot on the first charge. :nadkick:

For the briefest of seconds, I thought that was Griff.

A scary second, I think.

He does kinda look like the Griffster! Sorta.

I missed that before.

What the fuck is wrong with you people, Griff has a gorgeous wife, two beautiful daughters, a loyal dog, the full respect of the academic community, the log builders community, the fencing community, and the Cellar. Why would he resort to biting horse tongues... except for sexual gratification... Nevermind. :o

In 1939 they wanted to prove a glider could be launched with horses where the ground is not suitable with a vehicle. They reached 30mph and launched the glider. This must have been of interest to the government since WW II was not if, but when.

Gonna see some fine horses next weekend.

Twil and I are headed to the International Plowing Competition in Lynden.

But that horse is obviously well cared for and healthy.

Dartmoor doesn’t just have ponies. Clydesdale horses are taking visitors on treks to its remote corners, providing a modern use for the vulnerable breed.
If I had the land and, more to the point, the money, I'd have Shires, Clydesdales and Suffolk Punches beyond the dreams of avarice. Magnificent creatures.

Oh, thanks for the reminder! The PA Farm Show (State Fair) is going on right now. (Chan 9 on FIOS). For me the zenith is watching the 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 horse hitch competitions.

Doing a hoof trimming on a 9y/o, Dutch Draft horse Kim, 17HH(68" at the shoulder) and weighs about 1000kg(2200lbs).

I must admit that I raised an eyebrow at the use of what is essentially a cattle crush.
However, looking at other videos it seems common practice in Belgium and the Netherlands.
It worries me that there's no quick release mechanism in the event of an emergency.

This Clydesdale is only four years old and has some growing yet to do but he's still a big horse and is being trimmed and shod in a far more sympathetic manner.


xoxoxoBruce 02-19-2018 09:29 AM

I've never personally seen a farrier here use a "cattle crush" but I'm sure some do, especially dealing with semi-wild range horses.
I can't imagine what sort of emergency would require a quick release, but I do know the damage a horse a quarter the size of that Belgian can inflict.

I was thinking of how some horses panic in a confined space and immediate action is required to stop them injuring themselves.
It's not an exact parallel, but I once had dealings with a Shire X who managed to get a front foot stuck in a piece of farm machinery.
The local fire brigade had to attend to help free him and during that process he nearly sat down, either through fatigue or panic.
It would certainly have broken his leg and been the end of the poor chap.
However, several of us made an almighty effort to support the back end and managed to keep him upright while the fire brigade did their stuff.

Whenever getting kicked by a horse comes up, I always think of/see this one:



Although, Leonidas doesn't usually come up...:rolleyes:

Gravdigr 02-19-2018 02:12 PM

Dude caught both barrels, too.

xoxoxoBruce 02-19-2018 02:22 PM

Grav, that fucker was lucky to be able to get up.:rolleyes:

In that rig, strapped in front, back, and under belly, it would be hard work to injure itself. Also, holding that Belgian's hoof between your knees would be tough.

I rode for many years, but always tried to avoid that view.

Officer cadets’ passing out ceremony at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
Attachment 64601

Quote:

Major Dominic Alkin, the Sandhurst adjutant, rides his horse Royal Blue up the Grand Steps of the Old College building in the parade finale.
The origins of this tradition are unclear.
Probably first done by an officer who was tired and emotional at the end of a somewhat convivial evening.

After reading Bruce's Junkie Cicadas thread, I was prompted to search through my 2004 US trip photos to see if I had recorded the place where I heard the massed choirs.
Unfortunately the search didn't bear fruit but I found a couple of photos on the end of the roll that I had forgotten about.
I was more than happy to unearth this picture of my old friend.
He was twenty-three in this photo and lived on to February 2007 just a few weeks short of his 26th birthday.
