I was thinking “you backed the wrong horse” and “you fucked with the wrong guy” and it turned into “you fucked with the wrong horse” and I hope that’s never a sentence I’ll need to hear because I’d be afraid
i saw a couple of people tag that article w/ things like ‘rcg is my inspiration and now i feel bad’ and idk it’s just like…..is this really the tipping point that makes u dislike them? like these are the guys who have literally done televised blackface among a host of other stuff over the years and it’s important to remember that not only do they play largely horrible / bigoted people, when it comes down to it they’re pretty similar to these people. like yes they make great content and we make great transformative works with that content but you Cannot consume this show uncritically like it rlly is so steeped in bad stuff which we need to remember when we praise the good parts of what they’ve done
Both horses are Tennessee Walking Horses. Both horses are completely barefoot. What you’re seeing is both of the gaits a Tennessee Walking Horse can perform naturally, first in real time and then in slow motion.
The first horse is racking. Notice that she has very little head movement. A perfect rack should have 0 head movement and, if any, a very very slight up-and-down. Side-to-side head movement is always a pace. Also notice her hind legs. In the rack, a horse’s hind legs should land in the same spot as the corresponding front, or slightly behind. This eliminates suspension. You see different in the second horse because he is performing a running walk and that gait is slower than a rack. In order to pick up speed but remain smooth, the racking horse’s hind legs do not reach as far. The case may be different for speed rackers.
The second horse is doing a running walk. You can see a definite difference in head movement - his horse’s head bobs up and down pretty significantly. That’s normal and a great way to tell if a horse is in correct gait. The hind legs should either match the landing of the corresponding front feet, or overstep them slightly. An active running walk will most likely have an overstride. There is a theory that the more a horse oversteps, the smoother he will be, however that theory has not been proven.
There is no definite criteria for front leg lift between the two gaits. The racking horse in this example has pretty average lift. Not quite a daisy clipper but definitely not a park horse. A horse could have more or less front leg lift and still be in a rack. The running walk should ideally be more similar to a walk, so leg lift should not be as dramatic as a rack can get.
I haven't really watched Clinton before and now I'm like??? what the fuck is he doing? why?? what is he trying to accomplish because obviously the only thing going on is a horse being traumatized.... I don't understand him
yeah idk what motivate$ him and hi$ obviou$ly over the top har$h training method$ :/
I find it funny whenever anyone laughs about how Anne of Cleves was supposed to be ugly or pretends like she was somehow stupid for only being married to Henry VIII for a few months.
Let me explain to you a thing
First of all it’s unlikely the real reason Henry VIII didn’t want to stay married to Anne was because of her looks or her being bad in bed. It’s more likely that this was a cover up for the fact that Henry tried to follow a courtly-love tradition of disguising himself and going to meet Anne as she travelled to him. He then kissed her and at this point Anne “regarded him little” according to a chronicler. This may well have put Henry off from the start and is probably what ultimately caused the divorce as from this point onwards Henry was looking for a legal out from the marriage without risking his alliance with the Germans.
Further to this, Anne was compensated heavily after the annulment, for not contesting it, and was declared the “King’s beloved sister”. She got given Richmond Palace and Hever Castle; Henry even declared that, aside from his Queen and children, she was to be given precedence over all the women in England.
Anne outlived all of Henry’s wives as well as Henry himself and was the only one to be buried in Westminster Abbey.
She also did not have to suffer the fate of being married to Henry VIII.
This is why I do not tolerate anyone talking shit about Anne of Cleves.
