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.
Bragging rights
Multiple short story credits. First novel fall 2013.

What are wolf teeth?
Horses only have incisors, molars, and sometimes canines (the last more common in males). They have long since lost their premolars. This is what creates the gap we put the bit in. However, about 70 percent of horses have vestigial premolars - we call these...

Body Incompatibility?
Apparently, they've discovered a problem with the new Apple Watch. It can't read your heart rate if you have a tattoo. Which sounds laughable, except that if it can't read your heart rate it can't tell if you're wearing it. It locks if you aren't wearing it...

Is space real?
Okay. Stupid question, stupid answer. But it is vaguely possible that the third dimension is nothing more than an illusion and we're actually living in flatland. The explanation involves some really complex math, which I really am not even going to try to g...
Okay. Stupid question, stupid answer. But it is vaguely possible that the third dimension is nothing more than an illusion and we're actually living in flatland. The explanation involves some really complex math, which I really am not even going to try to get (I'm not a working scientist).

String theory has postulated different numbers of dimensions.

And we perceive three dimensions by putting two different "cameras" a little bit of a distance apart. Here's an interesting study in monkeys (who have a similar visual perception): http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/01/120118101333.htm

We also can't forget touch and motion. And maybe. The point is, that's still what we perceive, and it's always harder to promote a scientific model that implies that we perceive something incorrectly. Look at the trouble scientists had getting people to accept the heliocentric solar system and, of course, the (roughly) spherical Earth. We perceive the Earth as flat and the sun as going around it, and it took a lot to get us to realize that, oops, that's not how things work.

Do you ride a horse with a blanket over its back?
Thanks to the wonderful person who showed up to my presentation at RavenCon. Normally, you ride with a saddle blanket, which provides some padding between the horse and the leather saddle. On occasion, you might actually have a blanket or sheet over the bac...

What is a round pen?
A round pen is a fairly small circular enclosure, usually fifty or sixty feet in diameter, that is used to train horses, usually at liberty. Round pens are used when working with green or difficult horses. They allow the horse to be kept in a relatively con...

What is a bridle path?
A bridle path is...two completely different things. It can refer to: 1. A trail set aside primary for equestrian use. 2. A strip shaved or cut from the mane behind the ears in order to make it easier to get the bridle on and off. (Usually, fortunately, cont...

EmDrive Works In Vacuum
NASA has tested the EMDrive - the electromagnetic drive - in a vacuum chamber. And it still works. (But no, Daily Mail, it is not  the same thing as an Alcubierre warp drive. Sigh). If it works and scales up, it would make a trip to Mars feasible. It will, ...

What if you have to leave your horse in the wilderness?
Thank you,  +Nobilis Reed  for this one. You're exploring ruins for a portal. If you find it, you don't intend to come back. You have horses - and you can't take them through. What do you do? If you tie the horses up, they'll starve. One common trope is to ...

Do horses get rabies?
The answer is: Yes. Fortunately, there's now a vaccine for horses - the shot is generally given annually. Also fortunately, most horses with rabies do not become as aggressive as, say, dogs that get the disease. Rabies takes two forms - "furious" and "dumb"...

I'm back
I have returned from RavenCon. Thank you to all of the staff, guests, and attendees for a wonderful convention. (Sadly, the only picture of me I can find shows me at the 9am panel on Peter Capaldi's debut wearing my Doctor Who shirt and a hangover).

What about grabbing the bridle to stop a horse?
This is another thing you see written about a lot - somebody stepping out and grabbing the bridle to stop a rider. It's fine when the rider is stationary. If they are moving? I'm going to tell a story. This happened at a small show in England. A very small ...
