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 ...

What about dwarfism in horses?
There are three kinds of dwarfism in horses: 1. Skeletal atavism. This is seen in Shetland ponies - it results in short legs, a stocky body and a pot belly. Shetland ponies are the only dwarf breed of equine. This Shetland pony looks even fatter due to bein...

What is a "dummy" foal?
You might hear horse people talk about a "dummy" foal as a less than desirable breeding outcome. Dummy foals act very oddly immediately after or a few hours after birth. They often have difficulty suckling and seizures. They seem disoriented and irritable. ...

Can/Should You Ride A Pregnant Mare?
Pregnant women are told to do and not do all sorts of things, so the knee jerk reaction most people have to this is "No! Of course not!" Wrong. Most horsemen will continue to ride and work and even show mares until they are about 6 to 8 months pregnant. Rea...

People have gotten really freaky about pregnant women.  They must be wrapped in bubble wrap!  If there is even the tiniest risk, like eating fresh salad at a restaurant, they must not do it.  And if they do, we'll shame them for being a bad mommy.
It really is no wonder that people are going child free.

I'm glad the mares are getting exercise  though.

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...

Well. I'm leaving for RavenCon tomorrow fairly early, so probably won't post before I go. I'll be in Richmond until some time on Monday and probably come back not wanting to do anything but sleep. (Looking at my schedule, sleep? I can sleep or party, and I ...

Review: The Warded Man by Peter Brett
I've heard nothing but good about this book since it came
out (and unlike some people, Brett and his publisher had the sense to give away
the first in the series even if it's older). Brett has created a grim fantasy world. Every night,
"demons" emerge from ...

Is horse racing cruel?
It's actually a fairly common belief - amongst people who don't know horses - that racing them is inherently cruel. Racing is actually the least unnatural of the various things we ask horses to do. Not all horses enjoy a race - but most do. If you line hors...

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.
