Horse Love

Iceland, Iceland Horse, Horse, Flock

My love of horses began at the age of 11 when I worked every summer at a ranch. My twin brother and I would walk about ten miles a day in circles taking children on pony rides. I had never really thought much about horses before that but I was soon hooked for life.

Lately I found out years later that my husband’s name, Philip, actually means’love of horses’ in Greek.

I, like so many others, found the beauty and intelligence and robust connection you can have with horses. They have their own personalities like we do, and if you care to really look, you will see they convey a broad assortment of emotions. They may be happily prancing, angrily stomping, they can demonstrate sadness, and even apathy and defeat. How a horse reacts depends upon how we handle and care for them.

I found out the hard way when at the end of the day, I took off his saddle and hopped on. Before anyone could say anything, he was away, bucking wildly and trying to bite my legs. Of course in the end, he got off me by slamming me into a tree. I had a bruised leg for weeks. That same week I realized he was out to get me! He revealed quite a bit of slyness and would suddenly strike out and kick me as I walked past or if I got close he would try to bite me. I understood for the first time that horses were not only work animals and that he had been expressing his displeasure with me. I was amazed and developed a new- found respect. I resolved to establish a relationship, and from the summers end, we had been employed as a team. There was no longer kicking or biting.

Throughout history, horses are loved and revered by pharaohs and kings alike. There is evidence of domesticated horses going back a long time. In fact, in ancient Egypt, it is believed that horses were treated better than the Egyptians and they would even be fed before the Pharaoh himself. This was due to the early Arabian horses incredible beauty, speed and endurance and having saved many lives during war. This animal could withstand the harshness of the desert and preserve its beauty and strength.

The Lipizzan Stallion is another incredible beauty, powerful, yet docile horse. It was said that this was the horse Napoleon choose to ride during warfare. He was not a big man; therefore his stallion was bred to jump straight up in the air so that he could get a better view of what was happening in the area below.

There are a lot of different breeds of horses, and they are being bred for different things, speed, beauty, work etc.. To me they are beautiful, even spiritual and I know that there are so many others out there that feel the same as I do. There are even many beautiful horse posters available to adorn ones walls. I think this relation of horse and man will always be there. Enjoy them! I sure do.

10 Facts About Tigers You Didn’t Know

Tiger, Siberian Tiger, Tiger Cub

Tigers are one of the most iconic creatures on the planet. They are the largest cat species residing on earth till date. This untamed Hunter weighs up to 670lb (306 kg) and has a total body length of 11 ft (3.3 m). In the past century, the Tigers were cornered to leave their area of habitat, and over 93 percent of their species were ruined. At the beginning of the 20th century, the global population in the wild was around 100,000. After a slow decline in the population because of destruction and fragmentation of their habitat, now it is estimated to be between 3,062 and 3,948 people.

Listed below are ten fascinating and unusual facts about the tiger (belonging to the Panthera household ):

  1. Tigers’ pee smells like popcorn

Tigers’ are territorial creatures leading a solitary life. A tigress has a land of 20 km (7.7 sq.. Miles), while the man covers around 60 to 100 km (23 to 39 sq.. Miles). To mark their territories beginning and end, the adults scratch a tree and spray their urine that smells like buttered popcorn! From this odor, a tiger can determine the urine’s owner.

  1. Tigers can’t purr

Tigers, essentially belong from the cat family. But, do they purr?? No, they don’t. When a tiger is happy, they squint or close their eyes completely. They do this only when they feel safe and comfortable as losing eyesight lowers tigers defenses.

  1. Tigers can imitate other animals to attract their prey

Bears and tigers typically cross paths with each other since their habitats overlap. To lure a bear, tigers mimic the noise of a bears’ prey. As the bear approaches thinking it’s found a meal for itself, the tiger attacks. (that’s scary!)

  1. All Tigers have yellow eyes, except the ones that are white, have blue eyes

The gene for blue eyes and white fur is connected together, so white tigers are likely to have blue eyes than yellow.

  1. Tiger have spiked penises

Tigers’ penis is unable to become erect when stimulated! As Male penises’ have a baculum (a bone located inside) covered with barbs. The prickly bone, aid in”maintaining the connection” between male and female during copulation.

6.

Tigers use their 10 cm long teeth to crush a victims’ throat! A single attack is enough to cause severe harm. Tigers front paw is strong enough to–either smash a Bears’ skull or breaks its back. (lovely!)

  1. Tiger comes in variety of colors

Due to the difference in genes of hair color of a tiger, its color can change from its regular black and orange colouration. A tigers coat may be white, gold, black and even blue. The blue tigers are called as Maltese tigers, but there isn’t any proof that a tiger with such a special colouration even existed!

  1. Tiger have short term memories

Tigers have a short term memory of about 30 times longer than humans. That means they can recall a thing for a longer time and do not forget as quickly as we do. (Is not that great?)

9.

The forehead of a tiger consists grouping of stripes which bears a striking similarity to the Chinese character meaning”king.” It gave the tiger a cultural status as a royal animal-move over lions!

  1. Tiger mate with lions and other cats to produce hybrids

According to genetic research, male lions have the ability to make large off-springs whereas female lions create smaller offspring. When a male lion has a sexual encounter with a female tiger, the result is a enormous liger! A liger can weigh up to 1000 pounds and reach a length of 11.5feet! A female lion and a male tiger will generate a smaller Tigon, and they weigh around 180 kg (400 lbs).

Staying Connected in a Long Distance Relationship

Adult, Affection, Facial Expression

Long distance relationships can be full of challenges that couples around the block from each other never face. On the other hand, the creative ways you find to remain connected while you are living apart will improve your creativity when you’re living together.

It’s unbelievably simple to take another person for granted. But when you live apart for a long period of time, you can draw on those memories to bring you closer together when you do live together. This is a bonus that other couples only experience if they intentionally take some opportunity to be creative about linking.

So, while it is a challenge to stay connected, learning these skills now makes your connection better later.

While you’re apart take some time and make the attempt to communicate at least once a day, more often if you can. You can maintain an emotional connection with communication that is brief and frequent. They don’t have to be long, in-depth heart-to-heart conversations but can be brief text messages about your daily life, asking advice or just telling your partner that you’re thinking about them.

Let’s not be stalkish or smothering about it . Calling or texting each hour, waking them up before the alarm clock ordering pizza to be sent to their place for dinner at night is a little much. Instead, aim for substantial and thorough communications about your thoughts, asking questions, asking advice or telling about what happened to you daily.

But, let’s face it. After a little, text messages and phone calls can get tedious. So break the mould and make a video for your partner. Use your phone to tape yourself driving to work, while the phone is in the passenger seat aimed at you. Chat with the phone like your spouse is sitting in the chair beside you.

The art of snail mail is failing in our society now. And yet, there is something much more personal and loving about a piece of paper held in your hand. Write a thank you note to your partner for listening to you while you ranted about your boss.

Try to visit each other as frequently as possible. Long distance can mean a 30 minute trip or a 10 hour trip. Internet dating has made meeting individuals from across the country easier than ever. Schedule as much time together as you can and spend it with other people. We live in community and when you spend it with other people, you actually get to know each other better.

Alternate who does the traveling. It might be easier for you to travel than the other, but it is important that you both put in the effort to see each other. If you can both get off, try meeting somewhere in the middle occasionally. You won’t be able to spend time with friends, but it is a nice way to detach from everyday life and connect with your spouse. Just don’t let it be the only way you meet, or your understanding of life together will be seen through rose colored glasses.

Celebrate the capability to talking about the’dull’ everyday portions of your everyday. Mundane sections of your day are just normal for everybody. Celebrate your ability to share that with your spouse and make them an interrelated part of daily life. During these times make sure to support your spouse in their decisions or when they are stressed or hurt. Ensure you are available to them when things go haywire in their life away from you. Not only do they feel loved and connected when they know you’re available to them, but it deepens your connection, and is not that what you’re after?

Tips and Tricks for Your RV

Motorhome, Camper, Mobile, Camping

My goal with these RV tips is for you to find many, if not all of these tips to be helpful. Hopefully, at least one of the RV tips will make all your RV experiences safe, fun & stress free.

The gauges of the wire used in standard household extension cords are not acceptable for RV electric hook-ups. Eventually you’ll be put in a situation where you’ll have to use an extension cord. It is a good idea to buy an RV extension cord that is compatible to the electrical system of your RV, and have it available. Should you buy an extension cable somewhere else it ought to be at least 10-gauge cables.

  • Electrical adapters are a requirement for RVers. Eventually you will be in a situation where you have to use some form of electrical adapter to produce a connection at a campground. It may be an outdated campground or isolated area that only provides 15 or 20-amp electrical service. There are adapters that will go from your RV type plug and size down to family type sockets and adapters that go from household type outlets to campground RV connections. It’s nice to have these adapters available when you need them, but you must exercise caution when you use them. The roof air alone will draw up to 15-amps when it initially starts. If you put too much of a demand on electric adapters, or use them for extended periods of time they could overheat and melt resulting in damage to the RV power cord or electrical system.

*Take updated photographs of you pets with you on excursions. If they should get lost you can use the images to assist in finding them.

  • If your RV has a generator, at a minimum, it should be exercised for 30 minutes to an hour on a monthly basis with no less than a half load. Consult your generator owner’s manual for load ratings. If this happens and you manage to get it started it will have that all too familiar surging sound. It may damage electrical appliances and equipment and of course the cost of having the carburetor cleaned and removed. If the generator will be in long term storage it is possible to add a fuel preservative to the gas tank and run the generator long enough for the preserver to get through the gas system. This will protect it until you’re ready to use it .

*Every RVer should invest in some type of digital voltmeter that plugs directly into an outlet on your RV. There are lots of types available and they’re inexpensive compared to the repair costs for damaged electrical appliances and equipment. Many of these monitors are capable of measuring AC line voltage, generator frequency and testing polarity at the campground before plugging your unit . Campground electricity can fluctuate based on the demand placed on it. By tracking the AC voltage during your camping trip you can protect thousands of dollars worth of electrical appliances and equipment in your RV. If voltage drops below 105-volts or extends above 130-volts you should turn appliances and equipment off until the appropriate power is restored.

In 1834 however, changes were coming to the cab business. Because this new layout just needed one horse to pull it, it was cheaper to rent and had a low center of gravity that made it safer and able to negotiate corners much better than the predecessors could.

Harry Allen imported 600 taxis from France in 1907 and painted them all yellow so that they could be easily seen. He took the term taxicab in the words taximeter which means tax, charge or scale of fees and cabriolet which means a sort of horse drawn carriage. Collectively the taxicab was born. These were gasoline driven cars and the first of the kind in america. Paris and London had been using them for many years.

Taxis around the world can continue to be animal or individuals powered (believe the rickshaw or pedicabs, and of course there are still several horse drawn carriages in operation). Raccoon Poop are also big business in other places throughout the world as they take people where they want or want to discuss water not road. Hey, a taxi is a taxi!

Taxis today are an economical way to get around, especially in large cities. All thanks to the cab.
