U.S. land managers are proposing offering $1,000 to anyone willing to adopt wild horses gathered from public lands to alleviate a backlog of mustangs in government corals and shrink what they say are badly overpopulated herds across the West.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho's Horse Racing Commission is scrambling to avoid a funding crisis after its primary revenue source evaporated earlier this year with the closing of the state's largest horse racing track.
From dogs dressed as Darth Vaderto Elvis kitties, we can’t stop stuffing our four-legged friends into Halloween attire each October. Dog and cat costume parades are more popular than ever, and everyone from major pet supply companies like Petco to mom-and-pop Etsy dealers make a mint on adorable animal outfits. (Our pets, on the other hand, become more indignant with each passing fall).
We're not positive when this meme started, but some nincompoop (or nincompoops) had the bright idea of tweeting as top thoroughbred horses on Twitter -- i.e. taking on the personality of the horse and tweeting updates from the apparently 13-year-old girl-esque equine point of view. Frankly, it makes the Bronx Zoo Cobra meme look like Stephen Hawking.
Horses are funny creatures. Tthey’re totally into Skrillex hair and crazy hats. And don't even get us started on Mr. Ed. Even without talking, horses still crack us up, which is good, because horses can't actually talk. They can wear a ridiculous horse grin though.
What's the best part of the Kentucky Derby? The hats? The horse racing? The glasses filled with cold, cold whiskey? We couldn't decide, so we put some hats on some horses to help us figure it out. It didn't help. We'll make up our mind tomorrow when the race is over.
We already know horses are prone to some pretty funny stuff, like Skrillex hair and semi embarrassing Halloween costumes. As our luck would have it, this is only one part of their entertaining shenanigans.
