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.

Introduction Ever since man found out that it was extremely easy to have domesticated sources of food, reared right in his yard, millenniums ago, is it a wonder that poultry especially chicken farming is one of the best methods to get easy access to a good source of food for your family?
There is absolutely no country in the world, except perhaps the Arctic regions, – where man has not reared ducks, chickens and other poultry for table purposes down the centuries. Apart from these being an easy source of eggs to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, you also knew that you would have a tough old rooster for dinner, when a large number of family members popped in unexpectedly, demanding sustenance. We are going to be concentrating on chicken farming, for domestic purposes in this book. You have this dream of raising chickens in your backyard. You are interested in a continuous supply of eggs, and the occasional chicken for your pot of a Sunday. Layers are those chickens, which are normally raised for egg production. The chickens which are going to go straight into the pot are called broilers. Since ancient times, human beings have been raising poultry for domestic purposes and also for marketing purposes. Poultry farming has been a part of rural life in the east down the centuries. All the kitchen waste was fed to the hens. These hens came under the 21st century poultry farming term – free ranging. That meant they were allowed to scratch about in the backyard, getting their fill of insects, worms, green vegetables, organic matter, and was it a wonder that they laid delicious, nutritious, and proteinaceous eggs?
Every intelligent householder kept three or four hens depending on the size of his family, and he bought a cock from the market, when he needed chickens. Once a clutch of chickens was hatched, Cocky Locky went into the cook pot. One of the common mistakes made by new poultry farmers is buying a large number of birds, because they are not very clear about whether they want these words for home consumption or they want to trade in the eggs and poultry meat. Around 50 years ago, one of my father’s colleagues was facing this problem. He had this huge garden and backyard. He had heard about dad rearing poultry in that garden successfully. So he also wanted to experiment in this exciting new activity which would keep his family well supplied with eggs, and fresh meat. So the next time dad went visiting to his base on a tour, he asked dad the best way to raise birds without too much of a hassle. You are going to get these easy tips in the book.

Many believe that the komodo dragon has become so big because there are no other predators where they live and they have their pick of prey. • Other scientists feel that the size of the komodo dragon shows a direct link between them and their ancestors; the varanid lizards. These extinct creatures once lived in Australia and Indonesia. • When a komodo dragon in a zoo needs a blood test, two zoo keepers have to hold it down because it is so powerful, and it does not like blood tests! • It can run up to 15mph. • A komodo dragon will attack animals bigger than itself.

They were brought back from an expedition to the Indonesian Islands in 1926 by Douglas Burden. • Burden also brought back 2 live komodo dragons that were put in a show where people paid a lot of money to see these dragons tied up on a stage. This would never happen today because people would say it was cruel. It was this show that inspired the movie makers to create a famous old film called King Kong from 1933. (it was later remade in 2005) This is about a giant gorilla that is taken from its home and put in a show in America. In the film King Kong escapes from the show to wreak havoc in New York City.

Nobody knows when the attractive Woodland plant known to the world as strawberries decided to leave the edges of the wood lands and invade the gardens of human beings. But one is grateful that this is one plant which was allowed to grow and flourish in the gardens, instead of being considered to be just another weed, which had this habit of taking over large coppices, which were rich in natural humus.
This very popular fruit, cultivated globally is now known as the garden or just a strawberry. It belongs to the Fragaria genus of plants, which is made up of other fruits which are not berries, but are a number of aggregate fruits. Thanks to its very attractive red and bright color, strawberry aroma, sweetness and juicy flavor, is it a surprise that there is no fruit like the strawberry for adding style and distinction to your garden patch.
Just imagine ice creams, fruit juice, milkshakes, chocolates and pies, which have not been flavored with the delicate flavor of a strawberry. In fact artificially produced strawberry flavors are used extensively in lip glosses, lip balms and other beauty products.
Strawberries, especially the Woodland strawberries are supposed to have originated in Europe, because references to these sweet delicious berries have been found in ancient Roman classical cuisine. They were also used by the Romans to cure a number of ailments related to the skin. Crushed strawberries were placed under ashes and skin problems in order to clear and cure the skin ailment and to make it smooth and glowing again. The plant was also used to treat depression.
Strawberry growers of the early Victorian days used to take a great delight in digging up large coppices in the wood lands. These lands were rich in natural fertilizer, especially organic fertilizer, humus, and a well fertilized soil too. These lands were then allowed to be overrun with strawberries.
When people got to know in the medieval ages that all you had to do was go into the woods, cut some strawberry runners and plant them in your plot of land, and they would grow and bear fruit, this fruit began to be more and more popular both with gardeners and with farmers.
Medical Conditions Requiring Paleo Diet - Health Learning Series Table Of Contents Introduction: The ancient diet Section one: Knowing paleo diet Paleo diet explained. Dissecting paleo diet: An analysis of its components Section two: Medical conditions benefiting from paleo diet Cardiovascular diseases: A heart protecting diet Diabetes: Too much sweetness, too many problems. Obesity: Eat less, get thinner but with more energy Sleep problems: A soothing diet Allergies: “I am totally natural” says paleo diet • Skin problems: Be gone you rashes! • Autoimmune diseases: Protecting you from your own self
Introduction: The ancient diet In the search for the best diet, a theory was presented in the 1980s. The theory reminded humans of their ancestors and the healthy lives they used to live. It blamed the development of modern diseases on our present imperfect diet which it considers a recent innovation as compared to what our bodies have been adapting to, for the major part of history. It says that if we eat the diet of our ancestors, we will return to that healthy state and the diseases of our present time will fade away into non-existence. This is the concept behind paleo diet. Paleo diet, a modern adaptation of the supposed diet of our ancestors, is claimed to be the solution to the dietary hazards of our time. Can it really provide benefits over our present diet? Can it really be the solution of hazardous diseases that have plagued the modern society? This book discusses the advantages of paleo diet over modern diet relevant to the cure of diseases and assumes the position that indeed, paleo diet can be the solution for the major diseases of our age.
