No! No! A thousand times no!
***Very active and full of energy young horse***…”
Good gawd feed that poor horse something! Maybe they spent their food budget on getting his feet done *does happy dance that feet are done* *does sad, slow sway that horse is underweight*
(In a fake British accent) Good sir, I commend your ingenuity in constructing reins from twine. And while one of the reasons we use leather for reins is that they will break under sufficient pressure, twine will give out just a wee bit before then. For example, most non-steroidal humanoids won’t ever be able to break an uncompromised set of reins; however, twine, well that shit’s gonna break sooner or later!
Hold on, is that entire “bridle” made of twine? Never mind, it totally IS!
Just so we’re all clear, this is NOT what I had in mind when I set up the Twinecapades contest! Nor was this an entry (thank gawd!)
By the by, given that this is a “young” horse, you might want to give him a chance to adjust and accept the bit before throwing on massive shanks. I mean, if he were to repeatedly act up in those and become desensitized to them, what would you escalate to? As Deborah Cox once said, “tell me, where do we go from hereeeeeeeeee” (yes, I warbled that as I typed it).
And now for some sappy goodness that has nothing whatsoever to do with the above ad (oh look, a clever distraction!)
Mugwump just sent me an email pointing out these scars (no idea how I missed them… prolly blinded by the many other things wrong with this pic!)
Now go look at the second photo (above) and look at the same location. Definitely scars. Is there anyone in the Houston area who can save this guy?
