Introduction to Tiny Houses

The Tiny House Movement

The tiny house movement is gaining momentum and popularity for it cost effectiveness and simplicity. People who support this movement are happy to live in a downsized home -- their tiny house is a lifestyle that they adopt/adapt and are happy in doing so. While one might argue the disadvantages of living in a tiny space, the financial freedom that it brings along cannot be disregarded.

The average size of a house in the United States of America was 1,500 square feet in the 1950's; now, when the family sizes are shrinking, the average house size is 2,400 square feet. The lavish spaces in a 2,400 square feet house lies dormant for most part of the year. One such classic example is the living room, which serves it purpose for a couple of hours during the Christmas season... rest of the time its existence is hardly noticed or acknowledged; ditto for the multiple bathrooms, the huge dining room, bedrooms, and garage parking. The cost one pays for a huge home that is hardly used is hefty -- a mortgage that stretches almost until the end of one's retirement. Add to this the maintenance cost and the carbon footprint of a huge house!

Facts About Horses

Are you already fond of horses at an early age? If you do, you will definitely enjoy the facts that you will learn about the strongest animal we know. 

How Horses Are Born

Just before giving birth, a young pregnant horse gets into the right position. During its delivery, you will immediately see the first front foot coming out, followed by the second foot, then its nose. After the head is seen, the shoulders and the head are next, and this is known to be the most difficult part. After this challenging part, the hind legs and hips will come out easily until the baby horse, which is called colt (boy) and filly (girl) is completely out.

Popular Terms for Horses

Horse lovers often use terms which only them can understand. For someone, who is interested about horses, here are some common terms that you need to learn:

1. Aged - this is what you call a horse that is more than nine years old already

2. Backyard horse - this is a kind of horse that does not live in a barn. Instead, it lives with its owner or master.

3. Colt - this refers to a young horse that is less than four years old and has not been castrated yet.

4. Dam - this is what you call the mother of the horse

5. Filly- this refers to a young female horse that is below four years old

6. Foal- this is a baby pony or horse that is still under its mother's care

7. Mare - this is what you call a female horse that is already more than four years old

8. Stallion - this refers to a male horse that hasn't been castrated and already more than four years old

How Old Does a Horse or Pony Get?

Unlike people, horses only have short lifespans. Normally, a horse reaches 30 years, but it can still extend up to 40 years old. To determine its age, veterinarians examine and check the incisors (teeth) of the upper and lower jaws. 

It is very normal to talk about a horse' speed. The slowest speed is called walk and a bit faster than this is called trot. If you see a little faster than a trot, it is called canter and the fastest speed is called gallop.

The interesting thing is that all these benefits come with no side effects, which are quite frequent with the advertised pills and supplements.

In our daily life we give value to things that are ready to eat or things that we can eat on the go. No wonder diseases like heart attack, high blood pressure, arthritis and obesity are so common in western lifestyle. Yes, I called obesity a disease. To you obesity might only mean having socially unacceptable outlook, but medicine people would tell you that obesity is the harbinger of countless diseases. The cure and control of all these things comes with one single fruit. Yes, you guessed it right. It’s avocado that promises you not only a healthy outlook but also a healthy inside too. Above all, the taste of this fruit is something that would surely tickle your taste buds.

This book has been divided into four sections. The first section will inform you about avocado and tell you what it is, its history and its nutritional value. The second section of the book is about the health benefits of avocado. Different diseases that can be cured with the help of avocado have also been mentioned.
