"Hang on, pal, I’ve gotta clear my throat before we continue with scritches." -ahem-
Tori’s got a frog in her throat.
I have this love hate relationship with sleep where I love to sleep but at the same time it’s really boring and a waste of time so I end up staying up until some stupid time putting off sleeping. Then I can’t be bothered to get out of bed in a hurry. It’s a vicious cycle.
Hip #130 out of Zambezi Belle by Awesome Again selling as the fifth highest selling horse at the Saratoga Select Sale. Not too shabby for a horse out of an unraced mare.
Hip # 81 out of She Be Wild by Tapit selling in Saratoga on 8/5/2014.
look how fancy this is what if the horse shits
There is a guy who cleans it up. He wears a three piece suit and wears formal gloves and rakes up horse poo. That’s his job. I dunno how to feel about that. There are a lot of people whose jobs are pretty much just to pick up shit in the animal industry. Cows are much, much worse.
Onna Bugeisha (Feudal Japan Female Samurai)
Rare vintage photograph of an Onna-Bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan (emerged before Samurai)
An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honor in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional “housewife” role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Onna bugeisha were very important people in ancient Japan. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako were all onna bugeisha who came to have a significant impact on Japan.
