After reblogging @eventingarab ’s emergency horse care post for before a disaster (most of which consists of what most equine professionals in areas prone to disasters recommend), I wanted to share an after care post for horses.
DISCLAIMER: This is what MY vet recommended for US to do. Other vets or equine professionals may suggest a different protocol. If you disagree or don’t think what was recommended to me is correct, contact YOUR VET for their protocol. If you are not comfortable with something going on with your horse, CALL YOUR VET. I am in no way a professional, just simply passing on recommendations I was given.
Something’s to have on hand BEFORE if possible. This, of course is not a complete list, but is just some things I can think of.
1. Your horses current vaccination/vet report, your horses papers/bill of sale/way to prove they are yours.
2. Any medication they needed prior to emergency
3. Bute/banamine
4. Oral antibiotics
5. Iodine
6. Betadine
7. Thrush buster, coppertox, or your choice of thrush medication
8. Topical antibiotics
9. Vet wrap and cotton pads
10. Fly spray (flys and mosquitoes will be terrible after a flood)
11. Poultice pads, hoof packing, epson salts
12. Duct tape
13. Knife or scissors

You may not like polar bears, but you must pay attention to what happened to them.

It came out of nowhere, the text that read in a series of crisp letters: I’m sorry I let you down.

You frowned slightly at the message, the number that the message came from unknown to you. Let downs were the natural order of things, you’d assessed a long time ago and now that you had a few years of adulthood under your belt, you couldn’t fathom who’d actually sent the text. There were so many that had let you down that keeping a list would’ve been unorthodox. So now, as you sat in a partially empty bar waiting for a friend who was running late, you mind raced to find who the source might be.

At the sound of someone clearing their throat, you rose you gaze to the figure taking a seat before you. Even with his disguise on you knew who it was—your heart knew who it was. He sat rigidly against the wooden chair’s back, his starched suit not a let down from his usual fashionista ways. He called out your name, lips curling up into a knowing smile. It was a smile that was reserved for you and one you hadn’t seen in years now.

“Seunghyun,” you greeted softly with a quirk of your brow. Though clearly frazzled, confusion managed to trump the butterflies. “It’s been a while,” he began.

And so it had. 11 years to be exact.

March 11th 1864: The Great Sheffield Flood

On this day in 1864 the Dale Dyke Dam in Sheffield broke, causing one of the largest floods in English history. 650 million gallons of water swept down Loxley Valley and through areas of Sheffield. The flood destroyed 800 homes and killed around 293 people, thus making it the largest man-made disaster to befall England, and one of the deadliest floods in history. Individual stories from the disaster are particularly tragic. For example Joseph Dawson found the currents too strong and was unable to save both his wife and two day old baby boy - the Dawsons’ unnamed child became the first victim of the floods. The destruction afterwards led one observer to remark that Sheffield was “looking like a battlefield”. Today marks the 150th anniversary of this tragedy, which is often forgotten in English history, and many Sheffielders will take this day to remember what once happened to their city.

Consider the difference in the examples of the John F. Kennedy assassination and 9/11. While you’ve probably seen only a single film clip of the scene from Dealey Plaza in 1963 when President Kennedy was shot, hundreds of television and amateur cameras were pointed at the scene on 9/11. Yet neither issue is settled for Americans; in one recent survey, about as many people said the government was concealing the truth about 9/11 as those who said the same about the Kennedy assassination.

Documentary proof seems to have lost its power. If the Kennedy conspiracies were rooted in an absence of documentary evidence, the 9/11 theories benefited from a surfeit of it. So many pictures from 9/11 flooded the internet, often without much context about what was being shown, that conspiracy theorists could pick and choose among them to show off exactly the narrative they preferred. There is also the looming specter of Photoshop: Now, because any digital image can be doctored, people can freely dismiss any bit of inconvenient documentary evidence as having been somehow altered.

This gets to the deeper problem: We all tend to filter documentary evidence through our own biases. Researchers have shown that two people with differing points of view can look at the same picture, video or document and come away with strikingly different ideas about what it shows.

That dynamic has played out repeatedly this year. Some people look at the WikiLeaks revelations about Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and see a smoking gun, while others say it’s no big deal, and that besides, it’s been doctored or stolen or taken out of context. Surveys show that people who liked Mr. Trump saw the Access Hollywood tape where he casually referenced groping women as mere “locker room talk”; those who didn’t like him considered it the worst thing in the world.

It's Taylor Swift's Birthday! Here's 16 Times The Birthday Girl Gave Back

1) The pop star made a generous donation to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on behalf of her godson Leo Thames. Jaime King posted a shot of the letter informing her of the donation in her son’s name. “Tribute gifts are essential to patient care programs and services at Cedars-Sinai,” the letter stated. “They make the good work of the physicians, surgeons, researchers, and nursing staff possible and we are very grateful to receive them.”

The mom-of-two took to Instagram to thank her best friend and in doing so revealed that her young son was diagnosed with “Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA” at 20-weeks old.

“He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family. Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused. @taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving,” Jaime attached to the letter. “As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues. TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength.”

United Orthodox Synagogues, Houston, April 19, 2016


On this day in music history: March 30, 1967 - The album cover photos for The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” are staged and photographed in London. With the “concept of Sgt. Pepper” set, the next issue is what to put on the album cover. The main idea comes from Paul McCartney, who initially sketches some pictures of The Beatles in uniform receiving keys to the city by the mayor flanked by a group of famous people behind them. McCartney discusses his ideas with his friend, art dealer Robert Fraser who puts him in touch with graphic artist Peter Blake and photographer Michael Cooper. Once the wheels are set in motion, Blake gets right to work on the project. He asks the band what persons they would like to be in the collage behind them. They make their choices along with Blake. The bands roadies Mal Evans and Neil Aspinall go to various libraries around town and find prints of the various people in books, which Blake has blow ups made of, and then hand tints each one. A few of the subjects including Adolf Hitler and Mahatma Gandhi are not included in the final product. It will take Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth eight days to assemble the collage and other props for the actual photo shoot. The photo session takes place at Chelsea Manor Studios at 1-11 Flood Street in the Chelsea district of London. With The Beatles wearing their satin military styled band uniforms (designed by British theatrical costumers M. Berman, Ltd. of London), the photos for the cover, center spread and back cover are taken by photographer Michael Cooper. The cost of the staging and photo session comes to £3,000 (approximately $10,643.00 USD today), which in 1967 is considered an extravagant amount since EMI normally would budget album cover art at the time at around £50 (approx. $76.00). Upon its release, the album cover becomes an instant pop cultural icon, and among one of the most copied and parodied of all time. In 1968, Peter Blake and Jann Haworth win the Grammy Award for Best Album Cover Graphic Arts.

A Day In The Life - 30th March 1967: Cover shoot for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Prior to a late night recording session at Abbey Road, The Beatles visit Michael Cooper’s London photographic studio where the cover photographs for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band are taken.

The shoot takes place at 4 Chelsea Manor Studios, 1-11 Flood Street, just off King’s Road in Chelsea. The studios opened in 1902, and Cooper established his studio from 22 July 1966.

The Beatles arrive in the late afternoon. The soon-to-be-famous collage, designed by Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth, had been assembled in the studio during the preceding eight days. In addition to the front cover shot, The Beatles also pose for the images used on the back cover and the gatefold sleeve.

The cover came about after Paul McCartney came up with the album title. He took some ideas to his art dealer friend Robert Fraser, who suggested they use Blake, Haworth and Cooper to realize the concept.

McCartney’s initial idea is to stage a presentation featuring a mayor and a corporation, with a floral clock and a selection of photographs of famous faces on the wall behind The Beatles. McCartney takes the list and sketches to Peter Blake, who develops the concept further. Further names are added and others fell by the wayside.

Jesus and Hitler are among John Lennon’s choices, but they are left off the final list. Gandhi, meanwhile, is disallowed by Sir Joseph Lockwood, the head of EMI, after he tells them they would have problems having the sleeve printed in India.
