Odds and Sods: A Collection of Links, Ideas, and Eye Candy…

A Mad Scientist?

First and foremost, check out Spice Route and his mad scientist blinkers.

I’m on Twitter. Tweet with me.

Thoroughbred Daily News is on Twitter. Tweet with me and the rest of the TDN staff.

Top Ten Aachen dressage musical freestyle rides are online. “The Safety Dance” = best canter song ever :^) “Sympathy for the Devil” is a pretty sweet passage song, too.

Some very smart ideas for do-it-yourself cross-country schooling jumps.

Some fantastic photos by Mid-Atlantic racing photography wizard, Lydia Williams. Ashkal Way and Jeannine Edwards! Kentucky Derby-winning gutsy gelding Mine That Bird’s little half-brother. And a sweet shot of Fabulous Strike from last year.

And what would Potpourri Day be without a little LolCat humor? Thanks to pet columnist, author, and all-around awesome chick Gina Spadafori for finding this gem.

Breeders’ Cup goings-on by the green and game Dana Byerly.

Bring on the eye candy!

Check out this footage of the mighty Secretariat motoring around his paddock at the age of 12.

Here’s Angel Hearted, a handsome Thoroughbred who won at Monmouth Park over the weekend. He’s the Black Stallion of the Jersey Shore.

    Thanks for the link, and the eye candy used in my post 🙂

    I like The Roundhouse too, he looks like a monster breaking from the gate!

    Agree with Kevin re: Secretariat footage, thanks! I love the hop he does when he realizes he’s cut loose and can take off, super cute! He looked great too.

    Thanks for the eye candy. The red, white and blue “appaloosa” spots are cute.
