Pallas’s cat is a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia. The species is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as ‘Near Threatened’ by IUCN since 2002.
Ugh so fluffy
if you say you haven’t taken your horse’s salt lick or mineral lick and licked it to see what it tastes like you are a flat liar
So I dyed my cats pink with leftover beet water. No regrets! <3 :D
Felt pretty good.
She tipped me well too :)

I’m not sure why I like this picture so much
RIP Charity 1989-2014. My first horse. I’d worked and saved up for years to afford her. She was 14.3h and nifty as a sparrow. Short neck, short back, looooong legs. Terrifying to ride, aka learn to balance quickly, dear, she’s not going to make it easy for you. Simultaneously the sweetest and smartest little horse I’ve ever handled. If she saw the hoof pick she’d pick up her feet one at a time and hold them in the air till you were done. Came galloping to me on recall. She was my nanny mare, taught all the weanlings their manners. Her P&R was the envy of the local CT circuit and we always scored well. She had the deepest bass neigh I’ve ever heard, you always knew when she was the one talking. I did so much with this horse, competitive trail, hunter/jumper, western pleasure, parades, gaming, dressage. She was the lead mare of my herd for at least a decade. Loved cheesies. She would prance around pretending to be a show arabian and then turn around and follow me through hellfire.
Thanks for all the memories, Cherbear. You were fantastic.
Now I’m crying…

But then I didn’t know if there is a requirement for tail docking.
If there is it’s not going to happen ever.
If there isn’t I likely will. I would like some Shetlands and Dorper. Probably ewes.
I really hate cropping docking and unnecessary shaving. Sheep need shearing because of the way we’ve bred them. However dogs and horses have whiskers for reasons and shaving those for the sake of “clean looks” is just painfully ignorant.
Docking tails is not only unneeded but puts an animal at risk of rectal prolapse, it also puts in a major communication barrier between most animals.
Ear cropping is also painful, I’m unsure of any barriers it may put in place, but would you like me to cut your ears because I think elf ears are cuter than round ears? Most would say no.
The only reasons for cropping and docking are hunting, chronic infections, breaks or any other medical issue. Not “because it looks ‘nice’” or it’s a “breed standard”
Breed standard my ass. IF IT GROWS A TAIL NATURALLY THATS A BREED STANDARD YOU TWAT
this horse was handsome and he knew it too
This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
