what type of spurs would you recommend as a basic starter set? my teacher suggested i use them on a kinda lazy horse. nothing severe, just v basic and simple.

I think the basic prince of wales type spur is the best place to start - make sure you get the smaller kind, they come in various lengths. They’re super cheap on stateline tack, I’m on mobile so I can’t provide links.

♝ :Ever killed for sport?

“Never,” he says, emphatically.

But he had to think about it for a second.

Never on Eorzea, that much was true. And while never was the case on the Steppes as well, there was a time buried under hatred and memories when he’d almost wanted to. He’d been young; still deciding who he was, what he wanted to be. Too young. And all he had seen was the honour his tribemates won in battle - the praise and luxuries and food lavished on them if they made many kills, or had killed in an amusing or glorious fashion…

He’d almost been taken in by it, back then. He’d begged Delterkis to allow him on a raid; he’d do right by him, he’d make him proud. But Delterkis had asked him one simple question:

DID YA KNOW? The new anime Yuri On Ice!! is generating buzz for a lot of reasons. It centers on the arguably more unconventional sport of figure skating, for one, with choreographed sequences to match. It’s also not based off of a manga, making what’s in story a mystery to viewers. But the director might be familiar to you. YOI is actually directed by Sayo Yamamoto, the woman behind another unique series, Michiko to Hatchin

MTH was a series that took place in a fictional South American country, chronicling the adventures of protagonist Michiko Marandoro. Yamamoto has also made her name in the anime world by directing the 2012 Lupin III series, The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. Yamamoto is known for her strong creative sensibilities, as well as being one of the more well-known woman directors in recent anime history. She has previously worked on popular series such as Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy, Eureka Seven, and Texhnolyze.
