Bred at the famous stud farm at Mezohegyes, founded in 1784 by the Emperor Josef 11, the Furioso was one of the most significant breeds developed there. Rundstedt saw no need to retreat and take up defensive positions behind the Rhine. His men were well dug along the Siegfried Line safe from air attack and artillery. The Germans had built the Siegfried Line in 1938, it was an impressive array of defenses and fortifications ranging from immense blockhouses to fields of wooden “S-mines,” called “Bouncing Betties” by Allied troops. When an unwary soldier stepped on one, it popped up to waist height and exploded, severely wounding the American or British soldier. Rundstedt also remained on the defensive since it required him to commit far fewer soldiers to the battle than the Allies. Moreover, since his soldiers were not obliged to expose themselves they suffered fewer casualties than the enemy. The Battle of Hurtgen Forest in September 1944 would justify Rundstedt’s defensive strategy. The American army experienced one of the bloodiest battles in its history that fall along Germany’s western border. The American First Army lost over 30,000 soldiers in the Battle for Hurtgen Forest, three times more casualties than the Allies experienced on Normandy. The battle left the American divisions in that fifty-four mile sector of the Siegfried Line battered and bruised. It would later give Hitler the confidence to launch his own attack. Rundstedt knew Hitler’s plan was overly ambitious. Even if Rundstedt’s forces reached the Meuse River, his spearheads would be caught in the open to massive counter-attacks from the air and ground by Allied forces. While most German generals were deeply skeptical of the offensive’s chances of success, younger officers and NCOs loyal to Hitler, especially those of the Waffen-SS, were desperate for it to succeed.

Rubber matting is a fairly new innovation providing a warmer, softer and more comfortable stable floor for your horse than concrete, brick, dirt, or wood flooring. Rubber matting also greatly reduces the amount of bedding required. A downside is horses don’t like to lie down on bare mats. They prefer the comfort of a bedded area. So even though mats cut down on the amount of bedding needed, be kind to your horse and provide him with enough soft bedding to make him feel comfortable enough to lie down.

First thing is to check your cueing and make sure that you are going to strike the cue ball where you intend to. If all is good, raise your eyes only, to the object ball, re-checking for the second time that your sighting on to the object ball is still correct. Continuing your cueing lower your eyes to the cue ball to re-check for the second time that you are going to strike the cue ball where you intended to. Raise your eyes to the object ball again checking for the third time that you are sighting correctly. Then, with your cue tip back to the cue ball, stop your cue for a brief pause, drop your eyes to the cue ball for the third and last time, making sure that your tip is still on the intended area of the cue ball, before raising your eyes to the object ball for the fourth and last time. This whole procedure has taken no more than 10 seconds.
