Intel shows its Horseshoe Bend, a 17-inch folding tablet prototype and Intel Tiger Lake processor

At the moment not as much as the MWC 2019, but the CES 2020 is in a way the stage to see folding devices. Although, speaking of something closer to laptops, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold and the Intel Horseshoe Bend, a concept that presents that same format. Learn more about new devices at generationrwanda.org

We see then that it is a prototype that also fits into that concept of hybrid between a laptop and large tablet, in that same idea also of the Dell Concept Ori. It is not something that we will see soon in the market, but the manufacturer has also wanted to show that they are not out of that possible future path of establishing the category of folding devices.

17.3 inches and the latest from Intel

Very little has been told by Intel about his Horseshoe Bend, but we know that the folding panel that integrates is 17.3 inches. Within the parks that are in detail do not talk about the folds that can hold as we saw in the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and we do not know the resolution and other data on the screen.

What they have confirmed is that the interiors dress the house and that it is a prototype with the Intel Tiger Lake UP4 processor. The part of the hinges is hidden so that they are apparently protected from dirt.

It is a product designed for use very similar to what we have seen, in this case with at least three formats. It can be used vertically, with one of the halves being the base and activating the virtual keyboard thus emulating traditional laptops, also horizontally and semi-folded as a monitor, or fully extended and using a base of its back as a way of a tablet withstand. Being a prototype, for now, they have not shown something similar to the keyboard that we saw for the ThinkPad X1.

As for the exteriors, it is built-in metal with a matt finish. It has a leather cover, looking to give sensations similar to those given by a book.

A path that seems to look for several

As we said, it is a prototype and per se we may not see it in the market, thus being a way to show the possible evolution that can be taken by folding devices that collaborating companies like Lenovo can build. In fact, given that Windows 10 does not yet have a version adapted to these devices, what we see in this case is its own software adapted for the demo.

We will see if this year we see any of these concepts finished and reaching the market. It will be interesting to be a spectator of the birth of these categories of devices if they finally establish themselves as finished products in consumer electronics, we will see at what prices these portable tablets come.

In this article we will tell You about how to choose the right saddle that’s right for Your particular horse.

Balance

Put the saddle on the withers and easy sliding movement of the pull it to the tail. Your saddle should not restrict the shoulder movement of the horse, that is not to put pressure on the shoulder.

Put a piece of round chalk mounted in the saddle. Mel can roll and stop at the deepest point of the saddle — point of balance (equilibrium).

If the saddle upturned forward (raised back), in this case, it puts pressure on the shoulders and withers of the horse. and throws the rider forward. To maintain equilibrium, the rider will be forced to bend forward the lower back, the legs also go forward.

If the saddle is littered ago (raised the front part), the back part of the saddle too much pressure on the lower back of the horse. Rider when it tipped backwards. To maintain balance, his legs will move forward and up, to avoid the backlog of housing, the shoulders will fall forward.

Correctly balanced saddle puts no pressure on the shoulders or the rump of the horse. It evenly distributes the weight of the rider. The rider has the ability to sit comfortably, evenly distributing your weight on the ischial tuberosity and not putting the extra effort to maintain their equilibrium when moving.

The gap in the shoulder area

It is important to determine the height of the clearance between the withers and the front of Luke lence. Put the saddle on the horse’s back and shove the palm of the hand vertically under the front. In the case where the slit between the horse and saddle, were three finger — then everything is fine. If the clearance is already — perhaps the saddle is large, or its pommel is not suitable for high withers. In the case when the space is greater than three fingers — most likely, a little saddle for your horse, and even if it is not down to her withers, then the movement will still cause harm to the shoulders and spine of the horse, pinching them.

Channel width

The width of the space between the panels of the lence is also of great importance. The first thing you need to evaluate is the availability of space between the pads and between the saddle and the horse’s back. Place the saddle on the horse’s back. Standing at the front of the lence and looking at the horse along its back, You will be able to see under saddle flat strip light. This is a good sign. The saddle is adjusted correctly. If such a clearance is not, this means that the saddle is in a place in contact with his back. In this case, it should not be used. The fact that this small air gap allows the free functioning of the spine of the horse. And this is extremely important! The vertebrae should not be the slightest pressure, otherwise this can result in chronic disease of the animal!

At the same time the gap should not be too large, and this is possible if the saddle was tight. In this situation, the panels of the saddle will pinch the horse’s spine laterally.

In the case where the distance between the panels of the saddle is too large, on the spine will put pressure the saddle, which hang down under the weight of the rider. Thus, the optimum for the gap between the saddle and the horse is the height of 3-4 fingers (about 6-7 cm). Typically, the problematic area of narrowing is at the rear of the saddle. Therefore, it is recommended to check the clearance at the back Luke more thoroughly.

Uniform contact

Beginners it is not easy to determine the uniformity of the fit of the saddle to the horse’s back. For this you need to put your hand under the saddle and in different places ponazhimat on the front and rear of the saddle, according to their own feelings to determine the effect of pressure. It is important to make sure that the saddle is not rocking on the horse’s back.

The uniformity of contact of the saddle with the horse’s body can also determine, after intensive work the horse. This requires that the animal is sweating under the saddle and then bassetlaw her and took the saddle blanket for mirrored in the coat the form of wet spots to determine the degree of pressure. Ideally, the form of damp patches shall repeat the shape of the shelves of the saddle. If the back is wet only in the middle or at the edges, where lay the saddle is helpful information about uneven contact, grip.

There is another way to check: put it under the saddle cloth in a large enough sheet of paper (which would have covered the entire surface occupied by the panels lence) and the nature of its “wear and tear” after a workout, consider how the saddle rests on the back of the animal.

The location of prestrung

For the comfort of the horse is not only the shape of the saddle and type of girth, but the properties of prodrug. Often all pristroy mounted in the middle seat, and much closer to its front part. As a result, when the girth is tightened, it holds only the front part of the seat, and the rear bow is relatively free. This is especially noticeable when the horse moves at a gallop: the horse, especially the back, like flaps the animal’s back, thereby causing discomfort.

Of course, most often it is not only the fastening of the girths, but in the wrong form of a saddle, the discrepancy between the curve of the back of the horse. In this situation, some advantage have those saddle brands that have an additional adjustment straps on the second prestroke and, in addition, attach it at the edge of the wing, as close to the rear bow. With this type of mounting prodrug cinch does not cause uneven pressure of the saddle on his back.

The straightness of the saddle

A saddle should not fall to the side when viewed from the front or rear. Shelf saddle should fit snugly to the horse’s back, there should not be gaps underneath. Put your hand on the saddle and wiggle left-right. From easy efforts of well-chosen saddle should not mix or shake.

The angle of the saddletree

The arc of the pommel must be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the rear edge of the blade. In addition, the wings of the saddle should be parallel to the horse’s shoulders. If the wings are too spread out they won’t be nice to lie down and the seat is not properly locked back. Even worse, if the angle between the wings and shelves saddle is too narrow. This saddle will lead to excessive pressure and discomfort. The wings of the saddle should be parallel to the horse’s shoulders and repeat their line.

Width of the pommel

Front bow should be wide enough that the corners of the blades when driving could be a “call” under the saddle in the free space between the branches and Luke withers. If there is insufficient space, the blades of the horse will be with every step to push the saddle in the area of the pommel and it will always be back to mingle and go from side to side. The available space around the withers is especially important for horses that have a pretty wide torso at the shoulders.

I hope that the above few important points will help You choose and correctly position the saddle on the back of a horse.

Bridle cook

Bridle Cook

Views: 30389

“Beztelesna bridle” (eng. bitless bridle) — the invention of English veterinarian Dr. Robert cook (Robert Cook). Robert cook was based on his research about the dangers of iron that riders keep the mouth of the horse. Harm cook calls the blows of iron on the mouth — lips, teeth, gums, cheeks in the administration of inappropriate digestive reflex, difficulty in breathing and everything else that is called by the location of iron in the oral cavity of the animal.



To avoid this harm, the Englishman tried to find other means of control, not satisfied with known alternatives type hackamore and satpula. In cook’s opinion, they are all either not good enough in the management of the horse, or hurt.

Bridle Dr cook, in his view, is devoid of all these drawbacks, because it applies pressure to the nose, ganache and neck of the horse. Its application not only eliminates the problems both physiological and psychological in nature, but due to the design of the bridle, corrects many of the mistakes of the rider, giving you soft control for confident handling.

Such an optimistic assessment of the author’s many is the desire to get acquainted with the bridle cook and the principle of its action.

How does it work?

To rotate the animal, for example, to the left, the rider was quite a bit to gain the left rein. Due to this, the right strap passing through the ganache, stretches and pushes his head to the left. Unlike the bridle headband, no pulling effect, which is unpleasant to the horse itself. Much more likely the horse yields to the pressure and perceive it not as a restriction of freedom, but as a call to action. The same principle is used in training horses of many coaches who value and raising in the animal that is his partner and friend. Bridle the cook is always close to the head, even if you rotate, placing a hand on the side, as mistakenly done by some novice riders.

For braking with the cook’s bridle, the rider must gain both occasion. While loop pulls the horse’s head and affect nerve endings behind the ears, nosed presses on a nose, the horse lowers his head, causing a natural braking. Of course, under good riding, the rider controls the horse is not the only reason. On the contrary, a good rider is about the only addition to the effects of body and leg. But cook’s bridle there are also disadvantages. For example, when jerking arms tightened loop will lead to fear of the horse to go forward and lose momentum. Hinges function as a movable block, which gives, as is known from mechanics, strength doubled. Actually, the gain may be even more (up to three times) as the force of compression is determined by the reduction of diameter of the loops: if simplified to take the form of loops in a circle, changing the diameter of this circle is three times smaller change in the length of the reins. Triple “lose” means to move the same “gain” in power.

Many riders noted the excessive severity of the bridle cook; when using it I notice a loss of “liveliness” to the horse. It is noted discomfort for the horse, the desire to get rid of the frenulum, “shake” it off his head.

On the other hand, the severity can be considered a positive quality: if anyone will feel confident on the horse, and will be able, without a fight and without hysteria to demand from horse handling, it is better than to nag the horse with a snaffle. In this case, the bridle cook a good indication that strict and without metal in my mouth.

Additionally, there is the experience, claiming that the horse can not feel from the cook bridle no additional discomfort. As when using any other type of ammunition it is important to competent, judicious management and a clear understanding of the desired control.

It is likely that the bridle cook good for rental and beginner riders.

Local breed of horses: the Karachai horse

The local breed of horses: the Karachai horse

Views: 29504

Homeland Karachai breed is the village of Karachay. This horse belongs to the local (aboriginal) breeds and bred in the mountains and foothills of the Caucasus.

Description Karachai breed

The Karachai horse

The Karachai breed horses is inherent in the basic characteristics of all native breeds: they are undemanding and undemanding to the conditions of residence. Karachai horses are surprisingly usable are of the highest coordination, a strong Constitution, resistance to disease, endurance, extremely loyal to his master. Breeders, in turn, believe these horses are quite smart and savvy.

Karachai horses are capable of doing long passages in the rocks and terrain, in the bitter cold or heat. Strong hoof horn Karachai sometimes does not wear out even where not withstand the steel of a horseshoe. None of the existing species will not be able to be equal in the mountains of Karachai horses. Because this breed has always been highly valued in the district.

The Karachai horse of the old type was medium-sized, dry, very mobile and hardy. Karachai was well adapted to the harsh conditions of herd keeping and exploitation in mountain conditions. Movement on the hard ground demanded from her good guidance, care and attention, balance and courage on the mountain trails, ability to easily overcome steep climbs and descents, high strength the hoof horn.

With the further development of the breed performance horses has increased, they have become bigger without losing the above valuable qualities. They have a dry and strong Constitution, an elongated body, squat body type. They are characterized by a head with a hooked nose, long mobile ears. The neck is of medium length, straight, sometimes Kadykova, the withers are low, but long, back short, firm, level back. Svislye croup, muscular, shoulder blade is of medium length and slope, the chest is broad and deep. Forequarters correct structure, unlike the back, which are often a saber. By the way, saber rear legs of the horse is typical of many mountain species and physical disability are not considered. Rather, it is the result of adaptation of horses to work in the highlands. All the Constitution of horses is very dry, they are dry and strong limbs with clearly defined tendons, and ligaments, very strong hooves.

There are three inbreeding types: typical, massive and horse. Representatives of a distinctive type is today most common, they are close to the standard of the breed. This horse verhove-sled warehouse used for work under saddle and in harness. Measurements (mares) height — 150 cm, body length — 156 cm, chest girth — 183 cm, girth of pastern — 19 see

To raised bog type are mainly horses that have a small new bloods of the thoroughbred riding breed (usually in the range of 1/8). They are more tall, dry, somewhat lightweight. Horse riding the type of highly sought after as crew, successfully used in tourism, can be prepared for competitions by classical kinds of equestrian sports, mainly show jumping.

The horse of massive type are characterized by low growth, shirokolistyh, they are more stretched and bony. They are mainly used to transport works in a harness, at least under the saddle or under shepherds vyuka. These horses keep good body condition in all seasons of the year, they are the most unpretentious. Karachai horses are heavy excellent grazing and tubenut at high altitude conditions, where other breeds and types of farm animals are unable to exercise their inherent productivity. In order to obtain cheap horse meat a number of farms located in the highlands (more than 2.5 thousand meters above sea level), complement their herds mainly mares are heavy.

The horses of this breed are characterized by high fertility, despite the absence of feeding and herd maintenance in the mountains, exit foals is 90% and above. Many stallions and mares are used for breeding in the herd up to 22-25 years or more.

A distinctive feature is the suit are basically he has Bay, dark Bay, black horses with no or little markings. Sometimes among the Karachai is found gray suit.

Based on the book Kozhevnikova E. V., Gurevich D. J. “the Domestic horse: history, modernity, and problems”. — M.: Agropromizdat, 1990.

Than the Karachai horse differs from Kabardian?

Without a doubt, these two breeds, the similarity in the exterior there. Probably because in the years of the great Patriotic war Karachai breed related to Kabardian breed

horses, and in 2-4 volumes of the State breeding book of the Karachai horse has already signed up as Kabardian.

In the eighties of the twentieth century, the discriminatory decision of reckoning Karachai horses for Kabardian was abolished, and the breed once again received the status of independent, entering a separate section in the 5th volume of the State stud book.

How to improve performance horses

How to improve the performance of the horse

Views: 79081

Perhaps, the main factors vlasimi on the performance of the horse are: the body type (Constitution), temperament, maintenance, feeding, live weight.

Keep in mind that the nominal (full) health of the horse reach only by 4-5 years of life. However, one should not think of the young stallions life — sugar. They begin to “put a hand” to work before. Yes, it is, of course, lighter than their “older brothers”. Reasonable work contributes to the development and strengthening of the whole body of the young horse. Heavy work, on the contrary, may cause retardation in development and can lead to various bad diseases. Because the burden on young horses (which for 2-3 years) should be in moderation!

Also remember that each horse has its individual rhythm and pace of movement. That is, someone running briskly, but not for long, someone — on the contrary, aims to go part of the way with a more or less uniform speed. If you build a mode work horse, then try to install it according to the personal characteristic features of the horse’s body.

If you use horses to work in pairs (pair harness), then you should think about the formation of the team taking into account breed your horses, their age, gender, body weight, magnitude of traction, length, and frequency step, finally, the disposition of the horse. For convenient work it is better to pick up the horses so that the parameters were more or less equal.

To improve the health of the horse you must strictly adhere to her daily routine. If you use a horse in heavy work, with the creation of huge traction, then after every 50 minutes of work let him rest, take a break for 10-15 minutes.

Lunch break under any load, the horse must be at least two hours. Only this time the animals are able to efficiently chew food and put them fully to regain their strength.

Performance horses also depends on the implication in the work. That is, if the animal has been in the job for two weeks, today’s performance will be higher than on the first day of work. And drawn into a work horse by the end of the day even does not reduce its health!

Experience in the use of horses shows that the maximum efficiency of an animal capable of producing only when it is organizationally assigned to a specific person (a driver) who responsibly monitors the rate of production of horses and the state of her health (don’t overreact). Run fixed riding lies: the fatness of the horse, the mode of use (operation), horse health, condition of harness and carriages (if used).

I hope this short material will help you personally to save your strength and money in achieving maximum impact from your horse.

the Kazakh breed of horses

The Kazakh breed of horses

Views: 31469

Kazakh horse — horse breed, which is native to Kazakhstan. This is a local steppe breed that is still bred for its historical territory.

Казахская порода лошадей


The history of the breed

This is a very ancient breed that was bred in all sorts of apostasy: and as a horse, and as a sled, and as beasts of burden, and even as meat and dairy! In fact, this dog was bred naturally for many centuries. This breed has influenced other breeds, the Mongolian, the Arab, Akhal-Teke, the Caribbean, and later the English thoroughbred, Orlov Trotter and the don horse.

Under the influence of different climatic factors in Kazakhstan and the result of crossing the Turkmen, Mongolian, and North of the area with wild horses inside the Kazakh breeds were formed different ecological types and offspring (azievska horse, Jaba, and others).

Characteristic of the breed

Height at withers small: 138-145 cm

Adaev — red, white, Golden, brown; a small head, long neck, straight back, slightly sloped croup. Azievska horse — riding horse with an easy Constitution and lively temperament. Afraid of the harsh climatic conditions.

Jaba (pony) — dark Bay, Bay, dark red, grey (blue); small pony with the small and heavy head, the neck is short and muscular, compact body, straight shoulders, strong muscular legs, thick fur.

Temper

Representatives of the Kazakh breed of horses are unpretentious in food and housing, they are unable to live year-round on the street, but for Adaev it will be harder. JBA used to be in the most difficult conditions, so a warm stall for them may seem like a luxury. Kazakhs brave, intelligent, are extremely harmful, in some cases, feel the urge as much as possible to irritate the rider. With proper care, the Kazakh horse walk well as under saddle and in harness.

Lagoapraia breed: Russian Trotter

Lagoapraia breed: Russian Trotter

Views: 48535

All output is of the breed of horses by the nature of their use are divided into horse, used for riding and draught,. exhibiting its maximum performance in a harness, for example, for the transport of various carts. Draught breed, in turn, can also be divided into lakopenia, which requires a brisk trot in harness, and draught, which are used for heavy work at low speeds of movement (slow gaits). As discussed below, Russian Trotter (in the literature also found the term “Russian Trotter breed”), and Orlovsky, refers to legkoobratimy breeds.

Russian Trotter

In the history of the Russian trotters, there are two important historical periods: from 1890 to 1917 (the October revolution) and the period of the Soviet equestrian Zavodska when and took basic formation of the breed.

In the 90-ies of the XIX century began the crossing of Orlov trotting mares imported in those days American stallions. The American Trotter is different from Orlovsky with a little more playfulness, but really and significantly smaller body size, more dry, long limbs without brushes. These qualities are inherited and the Russian Trotter. The objectives of the crossing was at first getting frisky Hippodrome horses that have participated in racing at the track, was able to bring the horse owners income. In those days, in the Imperial Russia, the demand for high-spirited trotting sport horse steadily increased. Operation of the tote at racecourses has led to substantial increases of the amounts drawn at the prizes that spurred the horse owners new to breeding work.

The main method of cultivation was industrial crossbreeding to produce hybrids of the first-second generation and absorption of blood Friesian American. Very often interbreeding with American stallions were the best on the exterior of the uterus Oryol annually by the ability to frisky lynx and its transmission by inheritance. As a result of unilateral pursuit of spirited qualities in Orlovo-American hybrids deteriorated draught form and solidity, decreased harmonic, typical of Orlov Trotter, spread exterior defects. The value of these horses as improvers of mass horse-breeding fell.

Much of the best Russian trotting horse plants using American stallions and then crossed, switched to Matsalu. From the United States and also imported the American trotting Mare. In those pre-revolutionary times had the task of developing a new breed of trotters, and practiced the breeding of hybrids “in itself” pursued a single goal — getting stallions to use on the run.

Orlovo-American matizatsiya in the trotting horse breeding so rapidly that there is a threat to the existence of all of the Oryol breed. In 1910, this issue was widely discussed at a national Congress for horse breeding, where Professor P. N. Kuleshov and some others opposed meditatii.

Completely independent of the horse breeding causes the import to Russia of American trotters were stopped with the outbreak of the first world war (1914). After the achievements of the October revolution it was decided to stop importing American stallions.

The second all-Russian conference on animal production, held in 1926, it was deemed necessary to use a cash Fund of crosses for the breeding program. The main method has become the breeding “in itself” hybrids of the desired type with the use of return crossed with Orlov stallions mares part, which largely deviated to the side of shortness, of oblegchenno and mednarodnemu. Recruitment and selection of horses was conducted on the assessment of agility and conformation. As a result of more than a half-century of work was the creation of a new Trotter breed — Russian Trotter.

Russian Trotter breed is perhaps the youngest of the four trotting breeds in the world. It was officially registered and approved after the Second world war — in 1949.

Feature of the exterior of the Russian Trotter

Rysskoy Trotter was conceived with a proper, balanced physique, but today he may have a rather different exterior. Usually Russian Trotter is dry the horse with a long back, sloping, dry neck is of medium length, dry, strong limbs, and which are proportionally slightly shorter than the back.

The height at the withers of the Russian Trotter breed is 154 to 165 see the Average measurements of stallions are: height at the withers of about 162 cm, oblique body length, too, is about 162 cm, chest girth is 184 cm, girth of pastern — 20 cm

The suit of the Russian Trotter is usually red or Bay, frequently encountering a dark Bay, rarely grey, brown, black. The other colors in the breed was not observed.

Russian trotters were bred to participate in Ippodromskaya trotting races.

Reached records of the Russian Trotter breed for speed at the distances are:

— at a distance of 1.6 km: 2 minutes.

— at a distance of 2.4 km: 3 minutes 5 seconds.

Due to its performance and sporting qualities of the Russian Trotter were widespread on the territory of the former Soviet Union and even abroad.

As the Russian Trotter — and even valuable breeding horse, she is well used to improve local harness breeds of horses in the Central regions of the country.

the shape of the backs of horses

The shape of the backs of horses

Views: 81183

In this article we will talk about the different forms of spin horses: straight, soft saddle-like (hollow) and carps (convex).

Heaven on earth — the horse on the back (of the ancient Arab wisdom). Photo from photosight.ru. Author of the photo: Nastenok

It is no secret that neither the horse comfortable to ride. To contribute, or, conversely, counteract innate properties of the horse, passed down from generation to generation in the genes of the animal (which can be the exterior characteristic of the breed), or acquired property during the life of the animal, for example, due to the nature of the previous work horse.

Take a look at the picture on the right. Here are the three main forms of back: straight, carps and saddle-like soft.

Straight back

The shape of the backs of horses

Straight backs of horses are divided into straight horizontal and inclined direct. Video horizontal spin is relatively rare. Usually this line is inclined from the croup to the withers (that is, when the hind legs longer than the front), forming an angle of 5-10°. Video horizontal or inclined back most desirable when operating the horse, as this form of back and waist to the greatest extent, ensures the transmission power of the hind limbs forward. This is especially important when riding horses on the fast gaits: canter and fast trot.

Soft saddle-like (hollow) back

Soft saddle-like back may be the consequence of the weakening of the body under the influence of undernutrition in adolescence and insufficient development of the muscles and ligaments. But the soft back can be from animals raised in good conditions of feeding and maintenance and is well trained. In this case, the reason for saddle-like back is the excessive length of the back and waist. Well, here I wanted the spine to grow more than you have to! The old horses sway increases due to the General weakening of the body.

From underfed, neatening horses back and loins do not develop at length in connection with the weak development of the spine and acquire often carps form.

Should be distinguished carps lower back, due to the convex shape of the spine, from the so-called “well-made” waist, which also has a slightly convex form and is the result of a powerful muscle development.

It is desirable that the upper line of the waist imperceptibly merged with the croup. This occurs during the short, muscular loin and well muscled, strong rump.

Deviations from the straight-shaped back and lumbar in the direction of convexity or concavity violate the correct coordination of the front and back of a horse. Particularly bad in this case, the saddle-like soft back.

The most rigorous approach in the evaluation of the shape of the back needs to be applied to the riding horse breeds. Sagging back leads to overload of the ligaments and loosening of the spine that is most affected when using the horse under a pack or under a heavy rider. At the same time it should be noted that horses with sway backs often have a smooth, neraska gaits and are quite suitable for riding short distances, unless, of course, not to drive too fast. But these horses soon get tired, and fast gaits have the wrong movement, very tiring for the rider.

The appearance of sagging of the back contributes to its excessive prolixity, as well as a short shoulder and a long loin. Sway in this structure the top line appears more likely than a weaker and less developed muscles and ligaments of the back and waist. High decided neck is undesirable, as it contributes to the sagging of the back. Gentle pererastaet of the Constitution related to the General weakening of the body, in turn, also leads to sagging of the back.

Carps (convex) back

Carps the back and loins are often caused by excessive pressure of gravity from top to bottom. The back, to a certain extent resembles the shape of an arch, are pack animals: mules, donkeys and camels. Young animals not yet used in pack transport, have, as a rule, straight back, after several years of use under bagged back they have a distinctive “carps” form. In this case, the convex form of the back is a kind of adaptation of the animal to the conditions of work. Karpooravalli back and waist leads to a General shortening of the body, which is not always desirable. A horse with carps back has less opportunity for precise power transmission of the rear limbs forward. In addition, these horses torso is less flexible spine became rigid and, as a rule, such horses have a more bouncy gait. The bulge shape is usually manifested both in the back and in the lumbar region. While most of karpooravalli is manifested in the lumbar region. When you meet a horse with a relatively straight back and lower back carps, but it is hard to imagine a horse with a straight line of the waist and carps back. This is because in the lumbar region, have no bearing on the ribs, the spine, the most prone to change the shape of the concavity and convexity. Carps form the back of the horse is often the result of underdevelopment of the body, accompanied by a narrow and flat chest and weak development of muscles.

But what says the book Krasnikova “the exterior of the horse” about the carps back: “by underfeeding, the run-down, neatening animals in connection with the weak development of the spine the back and loins often do not develop in length and become carps form of education which promotes a narrow and flat chest and weak development of muscles.

Sometimes carps back occurs in young horses as the result of overuse, strain it in a harness. Professor I. I. Lacasa reported cases of the convex shape of the back of mules and donkeys when using them under a pack, as a kind of adaptation of the organism to the conditions of work.”

The way in which you can use visosity horse three minutes

Views: 78718

Imagine you are returning from a summer walk was caught in a storm. Of course, it gave some pleasure to you, as a rider, but what about your horse? After all, its wool, which covered the body, permanently wet. Will not pick up if the horse because of the wet, cold wool cold?

Indeed, imagine that your horse was hit by summer rain. Or even worse, even if it was autumn, and was a wet snow! And animal hair all wet, the horse was soaked to… well, thoroughly! What should I do?

Radivoje owner in this case quickly leads the horse to the stables. There are already to dry the animal with a special drying cloth, which will absorb moisture from the coat as a towel. But we know the way cheaper!

If drying blankets not, then to dry the horse by using ordinary wood sawdust. Sawdust for drying is necessary, dry and clean (without major waste of wood). In the stables you can find them usually on the edges of the room, where the horses shoveling sawdust themselves lounging in the center.

For drying horses should take a few handfuls of sawdust and lay them on the back and rump of the animal a generous layer. It would also be nice these chips a little RUB into the coat and leave for a few seconds, then brush away with your hand or your ordinary brush for grooming horses.

This procedure is repeated several times. After that, even wet wool will be only slightly damp to the touch. By the way, small and dusty sawdust absorb water better chips.

If you need to dry the chest and shoulders, you can squeeze them by hand to the desired places for a few moments. Water passes from the body of the horse to the sawdust fast enough.

Many horses do love to dry sawdust. When they are wet back from the street, almost always lie down and begin to ride on the back, and then stand up, covered in sawdust.

Note that the clean up of wet sawdust, strongly adhering to the wool, it is difficult, but, fortunately, not necessarily. When they dry, they will fall by themselves or the next day, they can easily be brushed off with a brush for grooming horses.
