hovis' friday diary: 'i'm going to horsepital and i will become a superhero muta

Dear diary,So it has not been a good week. You know I said the other week that mum was panicking there was something wrong with me? That I could foresee lots of trot ups and possibly the vet in my future? Yep I was right. You know how I said that I was just getting on a bit and that I was perfectly ok, just in need of a bit of warm up and some engine oil? Yep, I was totally wrong.So the other night Herman had dutifully been summoned to his most important patient (just for absence of doubt, that’s me, people) and had not liked what he saw. No, I don’t mean the sight of Aunty Em walking me up and down, but mainly my left hind. He had to phone mum as soon as he’d finished which would be enough to worry the bravest of men even with their big girl pants on and on a good day. This was clearly no

hovis' friday diary: one of my new superhero powers seems to be emptying mother'

Dear diary,So what a week! It started last Sunday when as I told you I was whisked off to horsepital by mother and dad and a worried-looking mini-mother. Aunty Em came to say goodbye and the atmosphere could be best described as sombre. I decided to lighten the mood (and the load) by excessively pooping all over the ramp to the trailer mum had borrowed on my way in and then danced about in it while mother and Aunty Em attempted to clean it up. I found me positively hilarious — not sure mother did…So it was a bit windy all the way to the horsepital and I arrived feeling a tad seasick — does that by the way make me a sea horse? I was met by a very nice lady and escorted into a large barn along with two very highly strung mares who were also in for supposed leg problems but who were leaping a

hovis' friday diary: 'when i came around i had more massacred feather and a hang

Dear diary,So I remain in a box. Resting. It’s seriously BORING. The most exciting part of the day is seeing which radio station the boss lady chooses for me — although last week’s experiment of classical FM was NOT appreciated at all…Mind you, last week in general was more than a tad pants. After a week of abject boredom, Friday saw Herman the German turn up with mother in hot pursuit. I watched in interest as a vast amount of equipment was taken from the van and set up on a little table next to my stable and more excitingly I was head collared and led to stand in the gangway. Maybe perhaps my enforced captivity was about to come to an end? No. No, it was MUCH worse.So after scrubbing my neck within an inch of its life as if I was some sort of unclean type, Herman produced a needle the le

hovis' friday diary: 'where there was once two immaculate legs, there is now one

Dear diary,I write to you from within a box. Resting. Because that’s what I’m on apparently, “box rest” — which is very odd because to be honest it very much feels like “stay in your stable and not be allowed out with the others”. There is nary a box in sight?So after last week’s killer question of “will the MRI coil fit around my magnificent manly leg?” The answer was yes it will. But not without soul destroying damage — more on that in a minute.The MRI scan has shown that I don’t have a fracture but I have a huge oedema and have damaged my cartilage in a manner very similar to high class racehorses. What can I say? I always said if that dude could be called Seabiscuit then I could break into that world as Soggy Hobnob — never let the feather fool you, I am a 4×4 with a Porsche engine…Any

logan: what is adamantium, the metal in wolverine's body?

Spoilers for Logan ahead.The seemingly indestructible adamantium plays a big role in the newest Wolverine movie, Logan. Like kryptonite and Superman or vibranium and Captain America, the fictional metal is just another substance that's inextricably tied to a superhero. Here's everything you need to know about it.It coats the skeleton and claws of both Wolverine and X-23Both Wolverine and his female clone from the movie, Laura (a.k.a. X-23), have skeletons coated in the hardy metal. Bad guy Colonel William Stryker originally coated Wolverine's skeleton in the material because the mutant already possessed a knack for healing, meaning he could recover from injuries and surgeries without dying. He planned on using Wolverine as a weapon, but Wolverine escaped.Logan suggests that Laura, too, was

parameshwara doubtful about diary, cm mum

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday maintained silence on the charges that many of his ministers paid huge sums of money to Congress high command, while the party’s state unit chief G Parameshwara questioned the authenticity of the purported diary which contained information on the payments. Siddaramaiah remained at his official residence “Kaveri” through the day. He visited Male Mahadeshwara Swamy temple at Chamarajpet in Bengaluru and offered pooja on the occasion of Shivaratri, in the evening. He remained incommunicado despite Opposition parties, BJP and JD(S), demanding his immediate resignation in the wake of the charges.BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa had charged that a huge sum of money was paid as donation to the Congress high command and claimed that details of the payments are avail

the superhero's swansong | business standard news

There’s a running gag on the internet about popular superheroes, such as Batman and Superman, having had a lot of actors play them on the silver screen in  recent years, but there has been only one Wolverine — Hugh Jackman. 

Logan, directed by James Mangold, is the closing chapter of the Wolverine series. Jackman reprises his role as the titular Logan, also known as Wolverine. But don’t expect to see the same mutant as seen in Wolverine (2013). Logan is about the ageing Wolverine, who seeks solace in alcohol and drugs. 

The film is set in ...

labor pushing court proceedings over brandis diary release

Labor is advocating for contempt of court proceedings against Attorney-General George Brandis over his reluctance to release his ministerial diary from 2014. Labor has accused federal Attorney-General George Brandis of ignoring a request to release his ministerial diary, saying he is not taking seriously an order to do.Labor's shadow Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus lodged a freedom of information request to access a copy of Senator Brandis' diary close to three years ago, which the senator's office argued would take too long to process.The Administrative Appeals Tribunal then backed an appeal by Mr Dreyfus for Mr Brandis to hand over the diary.In September of last year, a Federal Court upheld this ruling.Since then, lawyers for Mr Dreyfus say nothing has happened.The ABC reported his lawyers

condition score your horse | farming futures

Condition scoring your horse is an objective assessment of his current body condition, essentially scoring fat cover.The level of fat cover is assessed using a numeric grading system.There are a number of factors that can affect the condition score of a horse. Primarily condition is related to feed intake, but also other factors such as fitness, age, pregnancy and general health will be influential.Many horse owners find it difficult to differentiate between fat and muscle. Condition scoring needs to be hands-on in order to feel the relevant areas of the horse.The areas where horses store fat are:Neck – including their toplineOver their shouldersRibsBackboneRump (pelvis area)Top of the tailA top tip is to divide your horse into three sections, condition score each area and then divide your

gujurat varsity diary credits sages for research in nuke science, aerospace

Ancient Indian sages had initiated research in the fields of aerospace and nuclear science, claims the annual diary of the Maharaja Sayajirao University (MSU).The diary of the Vadodara-based university for 2017 has a list of sages who, it claims, pioneered various path-breaking scientific developments, including those in medicine like cosmetic surgery.The Congress, meanwhile, has criticised the content of the diary, alleging the RSS's right-wing thinking was behind it. On pages of each month, from January to December, the diary hails the contribution of different saints.For instance, sage Sushrut is glorified as the "father of cosmetic surgery" and Acharya Kanad for developing the nuclear technology.Kapil Muni has been hailed as father of cosmology, Aryabhatt as father of mathematics-astro

12 reasons why horses are better than cats (just in case you were in any doubt)

Just in case you were in any doubt (or are in need of convincing friends and family who are sceptical about your horsey habits), here are 12 very good reasons why you're better off with a horse rather than a cat... 1. You won’t wake up unable to breathe because your horse has stuck its tail up your nose. We hope not, anyway.2. You don’t have to lift your horse off the sideboard repeatedly when you’re trying to cook, end up shutting it in the living room out of exasperation, and then find the horse has expressed its displeasure by shredding your sofa.3. Your horse won’t leave you “presents” of eviscerated mice and headless birds outside your bedroom door, carefully positioned so they squelch between your bare toes.4. Your horse won’t suddenly take a flying leap on to your shoulder, or try t

william fox-pitt: 17 pearls of jumping wisdom

He has won 14 four-star events, more than 50 three-day events and countless medals for the British eventing team. While attending the British Horse Society's coaching convention, William Fox-Pitt shared his advice and knowledge on training horses and riders for jumping. Here are the highlights...1. A rider should always focus on the individual character of a horse when training — one method does not fit all.2. A horse that is genuine on the flat usually translates through to its rideability and trainability while jumping.3. When training or looking for a horse to jump, you want one that can think for himself, is clever on his feet and is ultimately safe — you want a horse to help you out if you’ve messed things up at a fence.4. It is our job as riders to train a horse to think on his feet,

horse who was once so scared he 'nearly went to heaven' wins world cup qualifier

A horse who was once so frightened and erratic he “nearly went to heaven” has come up trumps for Isabell Werth in a World Cup dressage qualifier.The 11-year-old gelding Emilio recorded a score of 84.2% in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Friday (24 February), to take the competition from Swedish runners-up Patrik Kittel and Delauney, on 80.91%.Isabell said the horse lost some confidence in the freestyle, and that she was realised “he needs more training because he didn’t always know what to do and we had two mistakes, in the pirouette and tempi changes”, but that she will also compete him at the final qualifier in the Netherlands in a fortnight’s time.Isabell explained Emilio had “something of a reputation” in his early years.“It was as if he could see something out of the corner of his eye when you

allister hood: 3 ingredients for a trot-up that will impress the judge

How do you trot up a horse to impress the judge? In the first part of a new training series with Allister Hood (pictured), the leading producer explains that it isn’t just about showing your horse moves correctlyAccording to Allister, impressing the judges is not just about showing your horse moves correctly. It requires the following three things as well:1. Maintaining the horse’s rhythm2. Maintaining the horse’s balance3. Ensuring the horse stays straight“If he isn’t straight, he may look as if he’s throwing out a leg to the side even when he isn’t,” explains Allister.How to teach a correct trot-up• At home, teach your horse to lead from both sides and change the rein on both reins, so he doesn’t become one-sided.• Walk away in a straight line and move him slightly to the left before tur

the equine liver *h&h vip*

The equine liver looks similar to that in most other species. This smooth, dark red organ is situated near the front of the belly, between the lungs and the intestines. Most of the liver is found on the right-hand side of the horse’s body, to allow room for the stomach on the left (see diagram, above).The liver is quite small in the horse, however, compared with the rest of his body. In an average adult horse it weighs about 5kg — roughly four times that of the average human liver. Unlike the liver of many other mammals, the equine version does not have a gall bladder to store bile.The hard-working liver processes nutrients that the horse absorbs from food — making proteins, for example, from the plant proteins the horse has eaten. It can store some useful nutrients, such as vitamins. It c

the diary of the home-made livery yard: relaxing horsey day out — is there such

Just before Christmas, we acquired a Golden Retriever puppy; Wiggles. We have been gradually introducing him to life at the yard and getting him used to the horses.Worryingly, Wiggles will obliviously follow the horses when I bring them in, just inches from their feet and follow them into their stables if I am not quick enough to intervene. While this has aged me several years in the space of a couple of weeks in stress and worry lines, I am pleased that he is not excited by the horses or scared of them. He is just a little, well, obtuse.I had a training breakthrough today though, when leading a horse in from the field. Wiggles was hot on our heels and I actually managed to get him to stop, lie down and stay. Not by command, but simply by growling at him. In fact, I seem to spend an awful

inflammation in regeneration: a friend or foe?

Regeneration is an inherent property of life. However, the potential to regenerate differs across species: while fish and amphibians can re-grow appendages such as limbs, tails, and fins, mammals, including humans, cannot restore injured organs to their original shape and function. Therefore, elucidation of molecular mechanisms underlying the amazing regenerative capacity of lower vertebrates can show approaches to restore complex organs in humans, which is a clinical goal of the future. An international team of scientists led by Associate Professor Atsushi Kawakami from Tokyo Institute of Technology have disclosed a mechanism regulating regeneration of the caudal fin in zebrafish. To identify key molecules responsible for tissue repair, they compared gene transcription in the larvae of th
