And Smashwords. Sadly, Smashwords has no way to link editions. If you purchased the old edition through Smashwords and send me a screenshot proving this fact, I will send you the new edition in your format of choice - this is because Smashwords tells readers they will be able to get all future versions, and I would like to honor that promise.

What is a "broken winded" horse?
A broken winded horse is, essentially, an animal that has a permanent respiratory condition that affects its usability. This is most commonly COPD or heaves, but the term is older - dating back to at least the 19th century. (Thus, you could probably use thi...

What is a blemish?
You might hear a horse person refer to a horse as "unblemished." Or they say "Well, it's only a blemish." A blemish is any permanent mark or scar that affects the appearance of a horse. Blemishes can matter in the show ring, but they don't (by definition) a...

Review: Hounded by Kevin Hearne
An interesting contemporary fantasy - and highly irreverent
in its tone. Kevin Hearne's gods are just very powerful magicians. (And he
implies, yes, that this does include Jesus and Mary, although it's not
explicit). Hounded touches all the bases - witches,...

Hive mind:

Reasonably priced computer speakers that give decent quality for somebody who's something of an audiophile. I don't really want to go above $150. My old Yamahas, which were fantastic, just died, and ugh, the internal speakers on my system just don't have good sound depth (2011 iMac, for reference).

What is a cow hocked horse?
A cow hocked horse is one which has hocks that turn inwards slightly - like a cow's do, hence the term. Cow hocks are considered a fault in light horses, but not in draft horses. It is a mild deformity, however, and can cause stifle issues and make the hors...

Leonard Nimoy
Yes, it's taken me this long to write this. After the original pilot of Star Trek was shown to the network executives, Roddenberry was given an ultimatum. "Lose the woman or lose the alien." He "Kept the alien and married the woman." (The original first off...

Promotion Plans
In this day and age, authors keep hearing the question "What is your promotion plan?" It's a reasonable question for a publisher to ask. They want to know that you're actually going to help some instead of just ducking back into your writing cave. (That lif...

What is a bascule?
"He has a lovely bascule" Outside of the horse world, a bascule is a bridge in which one end is counterbalanced on the other. In the horse world, it's the shape formed by a horse's back as he goes over a jump. A good bascule means that the horse's back is r...

It's a word only horse people and maybe engineers use. I didn't even know about the other meaning myself until I looked it up.

RIP Leonard Nimoy.

A fine actor and director.

I hope that you are now sitting on a porch with DeForest Kelley and Gene Roddenberry, enjoying a drink and watching the stars, somewhere in the afterlife.

Story
Introduction
If you want freelance writing work done, go to my website. I do SEO writing, ghost blogging, proof reading and script work. My best subjects are pets and animals, including horses, writing advice, fitness and travel. I will also rewrite your own material and improve the written content on your website. Copy editing and proofreading services are also available. Rates are on my G+ page (Jennifer R. Povey Writer)

If you want to read cool fiction, go to my website. Some of it is even free.

In politics, I consider myself an independent. I am in favor of marriage equality, feel government should stay out of our bedrooms and our doctor's offices, and believe welfare should be a safety net not a fish handout. I do not identify as either a liberal or conservative.

I am British by birth and American by choice.

I ride horses. I occasionally hug trees. I think science is cool and technology can solve our problems.

I read voraciously, but mostly science fiction and fantasy. I role play, but I do not roll play.

I believe in humanity and I believe in the divine. However, I am *not* a Christian. I am a Druid and Asetru, so my theological arguments may seem odd to some of you. I believe in moving forward as a civilization to a new equilibrium with the world and the universe, not backwards to the 'good old days'.

I dislike racism, sexism and homophobia, but I value differing opinions. I dislike arguments but love debates. I place a high value on respectful disagreement but will cheerfully block trolls and assholes. I have strong opinions and I voice them freely.

Note: I post GLBT oriented material regularly (but I do not post pornographic material). Some of the links I post may be to horror fiction, in some cases fairly extreme. Not everything I post would be considered suitable by all parents. You have been warned.

My blocking policy:
Post low quality pornography - blocked.
Post child pornography - blocked and reported.
Make personal attacks against me - blocked.
Direct message me to sell a product unless it is through an opt-in circle - blocked.
Direct message me with material that is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic or hateful in any way - blocked and possibly reported depending on how I'm feeling that day.
