The broodmare sighed out a deep breath and shifted her weight, the opposite hip cocking as she raised the heel on one foot and sank her weight down into this comfortable position of rest. Excitedly, the colt raised his head, an inquisitive gaze sent forward, though the still-slack lip told him she rested still. He stomped the ground angrily with one hind foot and went back to nursing.
Battlefields have been filled with the sounds of thousands of pounding hooves, gun shots and flying manes and tails. Unfortunately, those same battlefields have also been filled with wounded or dying horses, bloodstained grass meant for them to eat, and the stench of rotting horseflesh.

“Cocooning is the act of physically isolating or hiding oneself from the normal social environment, which may be perceived as unfriendly, dangerous, or unwelcome,” the first Google entry said.

An old wives tale is that if a turquoise stone changes its color it is a warning you will die soon. If you are wearing a turquoise and it changes color it is more likely that the stone is reacting to the sweat in your skin, cosmetic or cleaning products or that it has been bleached by too much exposure to ultraviolet light. Many turquoise stones are waxed to prevent them from being vulnerable to chemical changes in their color.
Now it came to be that the news not only spread to the rats but also to the rats that were willing to snitch to the cats in order to save their own hides. Since there were a good number of cats as well who were out to get a fat rat for dinner this was a common practice. There was one rat named Tubby who had only escaped the bite from the teeth of the cat by crying out he could provide even bigger and better rats for the cat to eat. Now in order to carry out this Tubby had to tell the big male cat named Chicko about the shindig held in the barn every Saturday night. Chicko of course told all of his friends in the cat community and they planned to raid the barn the next Saturday night.
Some criticisms are also aimed at horse racing, mostly from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This group considers the race as cruelty towards animals. Some consider the poor living condition for the horses are abusive, some consider making horses race is abusive. The most common factor by which such people have grievances is because of the physical injuries that occur at the time of race. The horse can stumble and fall, resulting in the serious injuries and death of both horses and riders. Statistics shows that for every 1000 riders, in a year, 600 are treated for injuries, mainly in the head and neck. 1.5 horses die out of every 1000. But it’s one of the most interesting and enjoyed sports in the world, and virtually all nations enjoy horse racing.
