1st photo: my mare, soaked in sweat all over her chest, neck, and where the saddle went, after a conditioning ride on a hot, very humid day.
2nd photo: what she looked like under that big heavy mane - completely dry.
I’m posting this as a continued response to the anonymous messenger @heartofhorselords sent my way, who asked about roaching an Icelandic horse’s mane in a hot climate. I initially advised against it, because the mane is so useful in terms of fly control (Glæta never needs a fly mask and is generally much less bothered by flies than Vigri), and because the horses don’t seem to get sweaty under the mane and its a huge asset to them in the rain/wind. Now I have more information. The heavy mane of the Icelandic horse exists to insulate against the cold, but according to my boss it works both ways - it also insulates against the heat. I’ve been paying attention and have noticed that Vigri gets sweaty all over on these hot days, while Glæta stays dry under her mane and doesn’t seem to get so hot. So now I would definitely say that roaching an Icelandic horse’s mane in a hot climate is a bad idea, as I now believe that the mane works to keep them cooler (this is the same reason people are advised against shaving dogs like Huskies in the summer). Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s how it seems to me.
Hey guys, this is Kendall Jones, she’s a cheerleader from Texas who spends her free time slaughtering endangered species including (but not limited to): lions, cheetahs,elephants, zebras, hippos, giraffes etc. Her actions are not only disgusting superficially (as you can see the bloodlust in her pictures) but she’s hunting endangered species and pushing more and more of them closer to extinction. She does this in hopes of getting a TV show, followers on Twitter, and because she’s straight insane.

Shoot her instead
Hello yes this is wrong
Kendall works closely with conservationists, and every animal she kills is one that is ill or has caused problems for others in their group.
She pays over $50,000 for each animal she kills, and every penny of that goes towards conservation efforts
She is HELPING TO CONSERVE THESE ANIMALS.
Also a lot of the animals in these pix are actually just sleeping because she shot them with an anesthetic so that conservationists can help the animals medically and put (humane) trackers on them to better understand where they go and assist in conservation.
DO YOUR RESEARCH GOD DAMN
Actually, this isn’t true.
Kendall Jones made a post on her facebook page praising herself for being ~~so selfless~~ by saying “I can’t wait to go visit an elementary school in Zimbabwe to hand out all these goodies to the unprivileged school kids!” As you can see in the image, this is what she decided to bring them. Big awesome person that she is.
Also, she claims that she’s contributing to “conservation”, that’s bullshit. Her conservation money goes to the government of Zimbabwe. President Mugabe, a man who rose to tyranny through imperialist british rule, is benefitting DIRECTLY from her “conservation efforts”, and the people she claims to help are dying as a result of her blood tourism.
Here is a link to a startling article showing in detail why Kendall Jones is a scumbag, not just because LIVE endangered animals are vital to the economic prosperity of small towns, and more importantly, to civilians, but because she pays an oppressive, murderous regime to kill animals she can’t even keep.
Don’t defend her.
The plot thickens.
Olivia ready for a drive
