The Day of the Horse (by Kerri-Jo)
"The Turkmens are superstitious, and protect themselves and their horses from evil spirits. In Turkmenistan every horse has an "Alaja" around their neck. An alaja is a braided wool cord, made of brown camel hair and white, black, and red dyed Karakul sheep hair. In the case where a horse is injured or sick, they attach a small triangle sewn with ‘omens’ to help ward evil spirits away. This could be an ‘evil eye’ bead, some herbs, a stone, charm, etc. Alajas are very pretty, and come in all shapes and sizes. The more intricate bands, often woven like a carpet, are used as prizes… given to the winning jockey of a race, or more recently, the champion of an Akhal-Teke beauty contest." ~ www.akhal-teke.org/

This is so, so important. And so amazing!
….I’m actually not sure how I feel about this. Does anyone know if/how this affects conservation programs? I know some subspecies are endangered, and, well, if artificial insemination is actually banned…
On top of that, how will this bill affect whales that are in captivity right now? Is there a plan in place for a place they can go? Does it have room for adequate exercise? Is it a safe environment for a captive bred whale with no hunting skills? I did read the part about the sea pens - are those ready right now? If not, where will the whales be taken in the meantime?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no lover of whale shows. But I remember stories when I was a kid - a local aquarium had a whale show, which was shut down by animal rights activists. Soon after the whale died - it was captive bred and couldn’t be released, and the show was its only exercise. I’m not saying that’s a true story, I certainly can’t prove it, but the moral holds true. Have these people done their homework? Or will this petition just condemn affected whales to tiny holding pens, because their rehabilitation isn’t ready?
My stupid horse and his fucking friend just ran right into each other. People used to ride these things into battle. People used to be depended on these beasts for transport and the plowing of fields. People write novels and poems about these morons. Steven Spielberg made an entire movie based on how majestic and proud these creatures are. What a bunch of useless pieces of crap.
