I used to stand and wave. I caught a couple of loose racehorses that way at Hereford Racecourse (National Hunt, now sadly closed) back in the 1980s. These horses weren't panicking but were still...
In any case, for horses "respect" is what you see when you get the behaviour you want, not the attitude that produces the good behaviour (as it would it a person).
This, of course.
"Shouldn't it have those spinning knife things on the hubs?" lol!
I think she is correct and up-to-date with respect to dominance.
Okay, but are they dangerous levels or levels that exceed agreed limits? Double a very low level could still be a very low level. I just don't know what levels we're talking about here - not even...
Is your vent in any way related to the complaint that one hears fairly often - that horses capable of being advanced to a higher level of athleticism or competition, but aren't, are somehow "wasted"?
Well, the pony is less than half the size too. Not that I would encourage anyone to do this, even if they are capable of doing so safely.
Something I personally have no grounds or inclination to connect with this photo. Imo, that is a separate matter entirely. The inadvertent innuendo created by this photo is understandable but...
Ordinary people trying to copy professional stuntmen like Frederic Pignon... pah!
How about the simple answer: "It takes all sorts"?
One could also ask why so many people go out and buy chess sets and then leave them sitting on the shelf rather than making the effort to really...
Just because a photo looks like a sexual pose doesn't mean that it has anything to do with that. If anything, it makes that possibility seem to me to be less likely in reality. 'Specific purposes'...
TBH, I can't think of more than two levels on which this is wrong (unless you count the colour of the shorts as well).
Would that include the "wild horse race"? (Is that still going these days?)
About everything, including judging the greatness of a nation by the way in which its animals are treated?
What does it mean to say that humans are "superior" anyway?? It could be taken (or mistaken) in so many ways.
Hilarious! :lol: Does anyone here know what the song is about??
That is what's known as an equinicular ectopic beat! :winkgrin:
OMG, horrendous! Had CA done anything to provoke the horse or p*ss it off previously?
Technically speaking the following was a spoonerism - well half a spoonerism anyway. (Warning: extremely rude word uttered on BBC)
Hardly one of the most unique errors, but annoying irregardless.
What would vegetarians say if Quorn mince (which is meant to be soy free) was found to be contaminated with soya protein? Discusting! :(
and meaties who like Quorn
I believe both forms are correct. Do you wish to exclude British English usage?
From the Oxford English Dictionary:
1. trans. To put (a horse) through his paces by the use of the lunge; to make a horse (occas. his rider) go round the lunge (see lunge n.1 3b).
And how many of us have horses that are dominate? (Bleurgh! :disgust:)
I could care less! Or couldn't I?? :lol:
