The Horse Life

Caring for a horse is a big responsibility. First of all since they are wild animals you need to make sure you a lot of land for the horse roam in. You don’t want to keep them cooped up all day. In case of extreme cold and heat you will also need a barn to keep them safe from the elements. A barn will provide them with a lot of protection and is a great place to groom them and feed them. If you ever want to transport your horse you need to make sure you have state of the line horse trailers to take the horse to shows or races. You will also need a heavy duty truck to make sure you can pull the trailer with ease.

Every day you need to wake up early and feed your horse, and if the horse slept in the barn you need to let the horse out to get exercise. Once the horse has left its stall you need to clean the stall to keep your horse healthy. You also will need to make sure the pasture is also kept clean. You also should interact frequently with your horse to help create that bond. If you choosing to ride your horse it is good to ride it a few times a week to keep that bond.

Having a horse can be a rewarding experience, whether you have the horse just as a pet or would like to show it in shows or race the horse. They do take a lot of work, but at the end of the day it is always rewarding. Make sure you are ready before you decide to take on such a responsibility though.

Cute Baby Bears in Primorye Safari Park

Dmitry Mezentsev, Head of the Shkotovo Safari Park in the Primorye Territory, holding two newborn Asian black bear cubs found in a den by gamekeepers. Their mother was killed by poachers.

Cubs weigh 13 ounces at birth, and will begin walking at four days of age, and open their eyes three days later. The skulls of newborn black bear cubs bear great resemblance to those of adult sun bears. Litters can consist of 1–4 cubs, with 2 being the average. Black bear cubs will nurse for 104–130 weeks, and become independent at 24–36 months. The average lifespan in the wild is 25 years, while the oldest Asian black bear in captivity died at the age of 44.

The Art of Hunting

When it comes to wildlife, the animals need the proficiency to hunt and to survive in extreme environments. In the today’s article you will see the comparison of Fox and Polar bear hunting skills. You be the judge and let us know which one you like better…

Funny lazy animals

Animals, just like humans, have a wide range of personality traits such as laziness, which can gain them quite a reputation. As most others have stated being lazy in the animal kingdom can actually be an excellent tool for survival. Being lazy can help save energy. Laziness is a disinclination to activity or exertion despite having the ability to do so. It is common for animals to forage for food until satiated, and then spend most of their time doing nothing, or at least nothing in particular. They seek to “satisfice” their needs rather than obtaining an optimal diet or habitat. Even diurnal animals, which have a limited amount of daylight in which to accomplish their tasks, follow this pattern.

Social activity comes in a distant third to eating and resting for foraging animals. When more time must be spent foraging, animals are more likely to sacrifice time spent on aggressive behavior than time spent resting. Extremely efficient predators have more free time and thus often appear more lazy than relatively inept predators that have little free time.

Many animals who live in groups also use baby-sitters. Some might consider that lazy but it does give the parent a chance to feed, groom and rest. Just like us, if one cannot have the basics in life coupled with a bit of relaxing we can burn out which can make our immune systems weak.

Bear Bath In Water Barrel

Colorado Springs is situated near the base of one of the most famous American mountains, Pikes Peak, at the eastern edge of the southern Rocky Mountains. A family living in Colorado Springs wondered why the water barrel in their backyard was almost empty every week. They decided to capture on tape why their wooden barrel gets empty during the night. So they set up a camera…
You just have to see this photos to believe it!

10 Animals that reach awesome heights

Animals on the ground? Not our thing. OK, they might be cute, but are they defying gravity with a completely casual attitude? I think not. For us, the best animals are the ones who care not a jot for their own safety. Here’s a collection of the most incredible animals risking life and limb for no reason other than a love of heights!

Mountain Goat

They could do with some mountain equipment

This goat is not content with being on a mountain. It’s found the highest precipice on this pencil rock crop, and worked its way to the top! We’re not even sure how it’s managed it!

Tree goats

These goats might not be that high up, but they are the highest things in this flat landscape. Scaling the heights of this tree, they are as high as they can be. We’re just not sure why!

Golden Snub nosed Monkey

This Monkey might not seem like it is that high up,but it is. The Golden Snub nosed Monkey is lives at altitudes of between 1,500 and 3,400 metres above sea level, and spends around 97% of its time in the canopy. You only see these things if you are prepared to get up high, but it’s well worth it for this beautiful species.

Leaping Mountain Lion

This is a beautiful image of a mountain Lion hopping from rock to rock, but clearly 1000’2 of metres above sea level. these wonderfully athletic creatures can cover huge distances in a day and can travel from sea level to 2000 metres or more in a matter of hours

Holy Cow!

This Cow is showing us all just how daring they can be! Normally associated with nothing more than hanging around lazily eating grass, this cow goes to show that there is a bit of daredevil in the old milkers!

Bighorn Sheep

This incredible photograph is of a Bighorn Sheep, looking over the grand canyon. these sheep can live very high up indeed, and clearly form this picture, they have absolutely no problems with heights!

Bernese Mountain dog

This post wouldn’t have bee the same without a Bernese Mountain dog featured. A dog that likes being up mountains so much it has the word mountain in its name! these dogs are as happy halfway up a mountain as they are anywhere, and with that coat it’s no surprise!

The Cliff Scaling Polar Bear

This incredible Polar Bear scaled 300 feet of cliff to get a shot at the bird eggs at the bottom! this picture shows the bear reaching its destination – not a good site for all those birds!

Cliff dwelling Horses

Here’s a horse showing that the equestrian world is not scared of heights! Horses are known to enjoy living at altitude, and clearly the thinness of the air has not taken the wind out of the sails of this fine creature.

Hanuman Langur Monkeys

These beautiful Monkeys are able to survive extreme temperatures in the Indian mountains, and some live at altitudes of up to 14,000 feet. this incredible species of Monkey. some climbers in the Himalayan regions have mistakenly considered Langurs to be the famous yeti! Of course, they are somewhat smaller than the mythical beast, and tend to scurry rather than walk – but of course at that altitude it’s surprising to see anything at all! These incredible animals don’t need any outdoor clothing like us – their natural coats protect them in harsh conditions that would reduce us humans to trembling wrecks in seconds!

Baby Elephant In Pool

The baby elephant has fallen in the pool located near the military college Bengdubi, 10 miles from the city of Siliguri in West Bengal. He tried to climb but he could not get out – the pool walls is too high. Military and local foresters have tried to help the baby elephant out of the trap.

At first, people tried to help with the fire truck and hose.  In the pictures are not very clear exactly how. It did not work, the elephant was exhausted, and then the rescue team came to a different idea.

They tore down wall of the pool and then the elephant was able to get out of the water and run back into the forest at his mother.
