He looks fat and happy... maybe a little smug, getting all the girls and all. :p:

Straight and narrow

A competitor with a pair of heavy horses attempts to plough the straightest furrow at the 68th British National Ploughing Championships.
More than 250 ploughmen took part in the event at Austrey, Warwickshire, this weekend.
I've been to a number of ploughing competitions and found it quite astonishing how much attention to detail is shown by the competitors.

Advance a few feet, examine the results, make adjustments to plough or harness, advance another few feet, and so on...

xoxoxoBruce 10-14-2018 08:42 AM

That looks like a woman driving that white team.
Out in Amish country all work stops on Sunday, only the horses pulling the buggies are used. I've noticed the horses and mules used for working the farm are never more than a few feet from each other in a big pasture. They work together and spend their time off together.

Yes, it's another ploughing picture...

Martin Kerswell and his team were among more than 160 competitors taking part in the annual Scottish ploughing championships in Kelso
Given that the location is in Scotland, it's odds on that they are Clydesdales, but the chap furthest from the camera has the Roman nose of a Shire. Not sure...

xoxoxoBruce 10-31-2018 02:28 PM

Smart man, use two right hand horses and two left hand horses, bound to plow straight. ;)

Gravdigr 10-31-2018 03:36 PM

He looks to be going deep.


Cough - coff
Rough - ruff
Ploughing - pluffing?

:p:Yep, that's all I got today. Dis m'hill.:p:

There's not much ploughing in Slough.

Or is it not much pluffing in Sluff?

Sometimes a chap gets confused.

Gravdigr 11-01-2018 03:36 PM

That chap would be me. Most of the time.

Numerous ceremonies and events are being held in commemoration of the end of the First World war and quite rightly they concentrate on the human cost of that conflict.

The part that animals, mostly horses, played has also been recognised.

Western movies (cowboy flicks) have 98% brown horses. The hero or lead bad guy might ride white, black, or palomino.
They're missing out on so many possibilities of making movies more colorful.

My favorite tv horse as a kid was Coco from The Big Valley. It could be because they had a real touching fair-well episode when the real horse died.

One day I walked the road and crossed a field to go by where the hounds ran hard.
And on the master raced: behind the hunters chased to where the path was barred.
One fine young lady's horse refused the fence to clear.
I unlocked the gate but she did wait until the pack had disappeared.
Crop handle carved in bone; sat high upon a throne of finest English leather.
The queen of all the pack, this joker raised his hat and talked about the weather.
All should be warned about this high born Hunting Girl.
She took this simple man's downfall in hand; I raised the flag that she unfurled.
Boot leather flashing and spurnecks the size of my thumb.
This highborn hunter had tastes as strange as they come.
Unbridled passion: I took the bit in my teeth.
Her standing over me on my knees underneath.
My lady, be discreet. I must get to my feet and go back to the farm.
Whilst I appreciate you are no deviate, I might come to some harm.
I'm not inclined to acts refined, if that's how it goes.
Oh, high born Hunting Girl, I'm just a normal low born so and so.

1973 - Secretariat set a new Belmont Stakes record with a time of 2:24, breaking the existing American record for a mile and a half 2:26:2 by over two seconds in a sport where new records are usually measured in fifths of a second.
He won by 31 lengths, the largest margin of victory in Belmont history.

The announcer is great.

Gravdigr 01-30-2019 01:41 PM

I wish one or another of the networks that cover NASCAR races would get a horse race announcer to cover the last few laps of the races on your shorter tracks. I think it would do more to add excitement than anything NASCAR could to the racing.

I'd like it anyway, and that's really who I'm concerned with.:D

Gravdigr 01-30-2019 01:46 PM

I've seen that race before, but somehow did not recall it being a five horse race.

Well, it turned out to be a one horse race...

I don;t know what you call it when you put two words together.
Appaloosa + Dalmatian = Appalatian

Appaloosa has nothing to do with it, appalachians are a Kentucky breed. Eastern Kentucky still has some wild ones... horses, wild horses, not the other Kentucky wild ones.:headshake

Are Appalachians also known as the Rocky Mountain horse?

xoxoxoBruce 02-08-2019 10:55 AM

No idea, never heard of them.

The Rocky Mountain Horse is a horse breed developed in the state of Kentucky in the United States. Despite its name, it originated not in the Rocky Mountains, but instead in the Appalachian Mountains. A foundation stallion, brought from the western United States to eastern Kentucky around 1890, began the Rocky Mountain type in the late 19th century. In the mid-20th century, a stallion named Old Tobe, owned by a prominent breeder, was used to develop the modern type; today most Rocky Mountain Horses trace back to this stallion. In 1986, the Rocky Mountain Horse Association was formed and by 2005 has registered over 12,000 horses. The breed is known for its preferred "chocolate" coat color and flaxen mane and tail, the result of the relatively rare silver dapple gene acting on a black coat, seen in much of the population. It also exhibits a four-beat ambling gait known as the "single-foot". Originally developed as a multi-purpose riding, driving and light draft horse, today it is used mainly for trail riding and working cattle.

This guy has another vehicle with a trailer but it wouldn't start so he took this truck and loaded his highly trained
stockyard horse worth $15 grand and beat it for work at 70 mph.
The cops stopped him but claim there is nothing they could charge him with. Maybe excess stupidity?

Gravdigr 03-13-2019 08:45 AM

No back window.

BigV 03-13-2019 04:12 PM

Highly trained or scared stiff, you be the judge.

Re back window, it rolls down like the door windows do.

Gravdigr 03-13-2019 08:40 PM

Butbutbut ya can see broken glass in the corner of the window.

Please to note the reins going through where the window used to be.

Attachment 66739

Note, also, the clearness of the opening whereas ya can see the green/blue tinting of the other windows. The headrests are too visible for there to be glass there. I still think that's broken glass to the left of the headrest.

Now ain't arguing about this more fun than arguing about stupid ol politiks?:D

Oh, and did you notice the horse is being very careful not to lean right or left?;)

xoxoxoBruce 03-14-2019 01:18 PM

That's a reflection.

Gravdigr 03-14-2019 01:25 PM

Then the real rein should be visible, and is not.

Also, no reflection of the horse.

Flint 03-14-2019 01:26 PM

yeah, watch the video

look at the reins

coming down from he horse

through the window hole

and into the cabin

there's no window

xoxoxoBruce 03-14-2019 11:18 PM

So the window "rolls*" down.

* we still say rolls even when they're electric.

edit ~Nope, I think that's about a 2000 Chevy/GMC and they were solid or sliders but no roll down.

Horses with passports? Nope they came like slaves...

It sure didn't take long for the Plains Indians to master horsemanship.

xoxoxoBruce 04-02-2019 02:26 AM

It's hard to believe there were no horses before the Europeans brought theirs. But then most healthy people could probably become pretty proficient in five years.

A herd of all white horses would be boring, the imperfections and markings of this herd make them interesting.

Wanna ride? Embiggen the sucker and watch out for the one with the black spot on his/her ass, it's a kicker.
