Caballo Viejo

Hilarious clip of Fez from That 70’s show singing Caballo Viejo (Old Horse), a famous Venezuelan folk song by Simón Díaz. I remember growing up it would play on the radio all the time, and of course if was one of the favorite dance songs for bands to sing at big parties, most everyone would hit the dance floor as soon as it started playing.
It was allegedly written by the singer to a young beauty queen – he might be an old horse, goes the song, but he still fancies his chances.

Shoplifter

Shoplifter, aka Hrafnhildur Arnardottir is an artist from Iceland who works and explores the use and symbolic nature of hair. Vanity in a comical, silly, romantic, beautiful way is the main theme of her art. Her artwork makes me think and sheds light on how we use our hair as an essential feature to decorate and beautify ourselves, as well as our horses and pets (though they could care less about it).

Half Moon Equestrian Centre – Montego Bay, Jamaica

It is getting COLD and I do not like it one bit! Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica would be the perfect escape for a warm and relaxing time. Half Moon was built on a perfectly shaped crescent beach in the 1950’s by a group of wealthy individuals as an exclusive vacation resort for their families. They offer many activities including amazing ocean swimming  on horseback – check out the video, it looks like it would be so much fun!

Ban horse-drawn carriages in NYC

It is extremely sad that way too many horses are getting injured and even dying on the streets of NYC. This holiday season let’s join the efforts to ban horse-drawn carriages.
The documentary BLINDERS shows the reality of how horrible the horse-drawn carriage industry in NYC really is. Many organizations including PETA have launched campaigns and bring attention to the problem. There’s even a very awesome solution which would maintain the historic and romantic feel of the tours while offering jobs to current workers of the horse carriage industry: New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets (NYCLASS) supports a legislation to phase-out horse carriages in NYC and replacing them with a fleet of vintage-replica electric cars – the 21st Century horseless carriage. NYCLASS and the ASPCA have pledged to find all 220 NYC carriage horses loving retirement homes and assure that no horse will be sent to slaughter. Everyone can help the horses and this cause: we can start by going HERE and by simply not supporting the horse carriage industry.

We respect everyone’s opinion, we encourage and will approve and reply to respectful comments only, regardless of differing points of view.
