An Introduction to Your Horse’s Conformation

Well, this is a pretty good example of what there is inside the centaur. Thanks for sharing. Questa è una gran bella tavola che mostra la struttura interna del centauro… Visto quel che stiamo preparando per soci e non solo, ci pareva importante, come anticipazione, almeno… In inglese, ma chiarissimo.

Equine Anatomy

The idea of using conformation to better choose a horse to buy, or choose a horse for a specific discipline is not new. Xenophen described what he looks for in selecting a young horse: “a hoof of thick horn, and a frog that is held off the ground.” But he never mentions the “ideal” horse, or the “perfect” horse. A perfect horse does not exist. We can take our analysis of a horse’s conformation and use that information to make better decisions, but we don’t simply turn a horse away because his pasterns are not at the perfect angle.

We can then break the horse’s body into three parts:

1. The spine, neck and head

2. The forelegs, and

3. The hindlegs.

1. The spinal column consists of the skull, seven cervical vertebrae which begins at the 1stcervical vertebrae, or the atlas which allows the skull to make up and…

Per vendere in America abbiamo fatto un patto con il diavolo!

Il nostro agente all'Inferno, pardon, negli USA.

Seth, il nostro agente all’Inferno, pardon, negli USA.

English Abstract at the End of the Post

E vediamo se qualcuno si azzarda a non comprare i prodotti di Nine del Lobo (o le nostre vacanze a cavallo) negli USA! Halloween permettendo, è il momento di presentarvi Seth, ovvero uno dei titolari di Philly Italia, la società che ha appena cominciato la commercializzazione dei prodotti dell’azienda agricola biologica che ci ospita (e di tutta la nostra Bellalavalle) negli Stati Uniti.

L’obbiettivo lo ha colto in una pausa di lavoro, durante una presentazione piccante nella notte di Halloween  in cui, non a caso, ha fatto sfoggio di uno dei grembiuli disegnati da Sacha. Negli USA come in Italia i prodotti di Nine del Lobo e i servizi di Rancho Comancho si possono acquistare, ricordatelo, anche via Internet, andando sul sito www.italianpepper.us .

Non si può dire che non ne sappiamo una più del diavolo!

Yes, we did a pact with the devil to get finally in the USA!

Halloween was chosen as the best day to begin with Nine del Lobo’s (the organic farm hosting the Ranch) US import. This is Seth, one of the owners of Philly Italia, the company importing our stuff in the other side of the Ocean. He is in the middle of a hot tasting the night of Halloween, proudly dressing one of the aprons disegned by Sacha.

Nine del Lobo’s products and Rancho Comancho’s services can be bought also by mail, clicking on the site www.italianpepper.us.

Sunday Column: My name

Well, for an Italian ranch now run by a young wolfie like Sacha, the old one thinks this site and this kind of news are absolutely needed (and the farm is called Daughters of the Wolf, even better and we have a Jessica here too, right in the picture at the bottom). Thank you Jessie, if you’ll ever be in Italy, here we are home too! Una bella persona, delle belle foto, della bella musica e pure dei bellissimi cavalli… Impossibile non stabilire un nesso, con tutte queste cowgirls (e avendo una Jessica con noi (qui sotto, a destra, sul suo Macho).

Sacha e Jessica, a destra

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Jessie Veeder
I tried to change my name to Stephanie when I was in kindergarten. A little boy named August raised his hand during sharing hour and asked to be called Gus, and, well, I thought that meant in kindergarten we got to change our names. So I raised my hand and declared that everyone must now call me Stephanie.

My sweet teacher looked at me, no doubt trying to stifle her laughter at the little weirdo before her, and calmly declared she thought Jessica was a nice name and I should keep it.

I was bummed. This was the 80s after all and Stephanie was the name of my favorite character on Full House. But I carried on as Jessica until second grade when we moved to the ranch and, struck with a sudden urge to shorten things up, I introduced myself to my new country school classmates as Jessie.

The Winter Cowboy

Beautiful picture… We know pretty well what are you talking about as you can see from the few of our place we added on the reblogging. Snow seasons are back in Italy and allover the world: maybe General Winter didin’t heard about Al Gore’s rants.

IMG_0366_1We’re getting ready for the new white coming and our horses and friends too. Come visit us!

Questa bella foto in apertura ha vinto un tot di premi internazionali e ci dà la scusa per pubblicare alcune delle nostre, riguardanti gli inverni scorsi, IMG_0359_1sempre più freddi e incuranti dei ragli di Al Gore. Sue Thomson, l’autrice dello scatto, ha colto il cowboy in questione nel bel mezzo delle Black Hills, le colline sacre, nel Nord Est del Wyoming.

Early one cold winter morning, five cowboys saddled up and rode out into the snow covered fields of the Black Hills of Northeastern Wyoming.
It is not often that a young Aussie lass, that would be me, has the chance to have real cowboys at her beck and call and shoot images. Not even a temperature of minus 30 degrees and a howling wind, could dampen my excitement.
After shooting for a while, I asked Tommy to go into the forest and then weave back out through the trees towards me. His horse spooked, he crashed through some branches, he cussed, he cussed very loudly, the snow dropped on to his hat…..and that was the shot I was after!
This image has won a number of international awards, including a Silver Award in the 2012 International Loupe Awards.
