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. The Grand National is one of the oldest horse races in the world, it has been run each year since 1836 (Excluding the years during WW1 and WW2) the first winner of the race was a horse called ‘The Duke’. Horses were important to the Romans, who saw them as fellow warriors. Equitation, sometimes called seat and hands or horsemanship, refers to events where the rider is judged on form, style and ability. The race has also featured in a number of movies, the best known being the 1944 movie ‘National Velvet’ a fictional account of a young girl disguising herself as a male jockey to get a ride in the race, at that time women jockeys were not allowed to enter the National – the part was played by Liz Taylor, who once quipped that her best leading man was a Horse! Today women jockeys are allowed to enter, the best finish by a woman in the race was in 1994 when Rosemary Henderson came 5th. It’s remarkable to think now that the Grand National could have been omitted from the list. In 1973 the Grand National race was in serious trouble, under-investment at Aintree Grand National course meant that crowd numbers had dwindled to an all-time low, and the owners of the course were looking to sell it off the land to a local property developer.

John Frederick Herring senior led a full and varied life which encompassed work as a coachman, a painter of inn signs, and later, a painter of equestrian portraits for the gentry and for royalty, including Queen Victoria herself. His three sons all became artists, and the best known of these is John Frederick Herring junior, who was also in great demand for his realistic paintings of horses. Trump seems to be a president without a party. He’s so insulted the other Republicans that they’re starting to see him more as a liability than a benefit. I don’t favor impeachment though, because I think Pence would be worse. Pence would be more presidential, yes, but he knows how to get things done and to avoid causing a constant and continual chaos. Sometimes it’s better when things don’t get done because they’re things you don’t really want to happen. With Trump in office, given his agenda and the Republican agenda, I think it’s better that nothing is getting done. I’m afraid if the circus was removed that lots of bad things would start getting done.
German commanders after several failed attempts to take Bastogne decided to strike at what appeared to be the weakest point in the American defensive line. It was a part of the front where only two companies of the 101st Airborne, no more than 300 men, held a line that stretched over a mile and a half around the northeastern part of Bastogne near the small village of Foy. Captain Richard “Dick” Winters commanded those 300 men of the 101st which were positioned to take a direct hit from the German advance. Soon masses German tanks and infantry opened a crack in Bastogne’s outer defenses in an all-out attack. The outnumbered soldiers fought desperately against the oncoming flood of German tanks and panzer grenadiers. Allied troops inside Bastogne’s inner defense would again mount another desperate counter-attack pushing the Germans back with heavy losses. It is a story that legends are made of, and a part of American history that should never be forgotten. Great explorers lost at sea; ships trapped in ice, frozen in time; gifts from the Queen of England and a priceless desk that is used to this day by American presidents. The Dafuskie Marsh Tacky Society , located in Bluffton, SC, was formed to preserve the breed which was in danger of disappearing. They have multiple horses at the races today including a dark blue roan or grulla stallion with zebra striping from his hocks to his dark lower legs and a dark dorsal stripe down his smokey blue hide. His mane is thick and dark and his mouth is small. He looks more Mustang than Marsh Tacky and is gorgeous to look at, like a plush stuffed animal they sell at Disneyland. One of the oldest existing breeds in the world, the Akhal-Teke hails from the country of Turkmenistan and even serves as the nation’s symbol. These horses may as well be the definition of beauty, with the distinctive metallic coat and sparse mane and tail. They are also known for the speed, endurance and intelligence, enabling them to be fantastic sport horses. Teke horses are usually used in dressage, show jumping, racing and endurance riding. With such a distinctive look, these horses are usually very easy to spot in a crowd. As hard as it might be to believe, the breed nearly became extinct on several occasions over time. Due to fuel rationing during World War II the Freisian’s farm and carriage use was revived, saving the breed long enough for both its population and popularity to rebound. Due to the fuel shortages, Dutch farmers turned to horses for transportation and fieldwork. The Friesian is one of the best carriage horses in the world. Due to its flashy appearance, the Friesian has become popular in the film industry. The breed owes much of its current popularity to the appearance of the Friesian stallion Othello in the 1985 film, Ladyhawke, which ignited a worldwide interest in these horses.
One month later on January 15,1945, with the war still winnable in his eyes, a delusional Adolf Hitler would board his armored train and began his nineteen-hour trip to Berlin. He would spend the rest of his days trapped underground in the Fuhrerbunker in central Berlin. As Allied bombers turned the city into a massive pile of rubble Hitler hid 28 feet below in his dank underground shelter. The Ardennes offensive drives home the lesson that a large scale offensive by massed armor has no hope against an enemy who enjoys supreme command of the air. Wilkinson’s raiding party soon grew to over 30 men with Wilkinson calling the shots. For the next 20 some years Wilkinson became known as Chief Nampa, terror of the Idaho gold and silver boom. He and his men robbed every wagon train, every rider, and every passerby they found primarily between IdahoCity, Boise and SilverCity. People who fought back, died; many who did not, sometimes lived to tell the story of their encounter. There has never been a better time to be a cord cutter. Gone are the days when Netflix and Hulu were the main sources of entertainment. Today we have the opposite problem. Streaming services are now a dime a dozen. There are so many on-demand and live TV streaming services available with wide variations in quality and content, that services that may appeal to us can go unnoticed.

This isn’t a complete list of available video streaming services, but it covers most of the bigger providers. Combined driving , an internationally recognized competition where horses perform an arena-based “dressage” class where precision and control are emphasized, a cross-country “marathon” section that emphasizes fitness and endurance, and a “stadium” or “cones” obstacle course. The breed originated in and is still bred in Denmark, it is now also bred in Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and most recently in the USA. The modern Knabstrups are bred to preserve the breed as a riding horse regardless of size. This is one of the only breeds that can present horses in all sizes, from pony size to full horse size. The horses usually stand at about 15.2 to 16.h.h and the ponies are under 14.2.h.h. The breed varies in conformation, but the best examples have reasonably good overall conformation. A tomb in Egypt presented horse riding in 1600 BC; this is the earliest of records that can be traced in Egypt.
