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.

Do horses naturally jump?
Yes and no. Horses are born with the ability to jump - in the wild, if they're running, they need to be able to get past/over obstacles. While they'd prefer to go around, and will generally step rather than jump if they can, they certainly can and will jump...

Can horses get dandruff?
Yup. Dandruff is most often seen in the mane and/or tail, but can spread over the entire body. It's caused by all kinds of things - allergies, dehydration, hormonal changes, stress, mites, or just, you know, a genetic propensity to a dry skin. It's sometime...

What is "wisping" a horse?
Natural horsemanship professionals swear by various kinds of massage - but old school horsemen have been doing it for years. It's called 'Wisping' - and you make a massage pad out of a rope of hay, and bring it down with some force on the horse's major musc...

Why do horses paw the ground?
You often see this in the movies (where the horse has been trained to do it on cue). Why does a horse paw the ground? There are several reasons: 1. The horse wants to roll. Horses that are going to roll will often test the ground they intend to roll on by p...

What is a half halt?
...and how can you only half stop. That's what halt means, right? A half halt is when you slow a horse until he almost stops then send him forward again. It's done to either rebalance a horse who's struggling to properly compensate for the rider, or to get ...

Not Quite There For Dragon
Although the latest Dragon landing was successful, the booster is apparently not in a usable state to be re-flown. The damage was apparently done during re-entry. Instead, it will be used in testing to help make the next booster more able to take high speed...
Although the latest Dragon landing was successful, the booster is apparently not in a usable state to be re-flown. The damage was apparently done during re-entry. Instead, it will be used in testing to help make the next booster more able to take high speed and heat. We're still making progress.

What is "tucked up"?
A tucked up horse is one who's flanks have collapsed inward. This results in an appearance somewhat like a greyhound (except it's normal for the greyhound). It's more obvious in Thoroughbreds, which tend to have a bit of a narrow stomach at the best of time...
