Rare twin horses born on Easter defy odds

A Tifton, Georgia, woman woke up to a big surprise Easter morning when her pregnant horse gave birth twice.

Lori Tucker's horse delivered not one, but two fillies: An extremely rare occurrence for horses, and what's even more astonishing is they're both healthy.

Only about one in 10,000 horses have twins, and even fewer survive birth. But on Easter morning Lori Tucker was awoken by a phone call.
"My neighbor called and told me we had twins. I was actually asleep, and I was so shocked," Tucker said.

She jumped out of bed and ran outside in her pajamas. Once outside, she couldn't believe what she saw.

"To come out, the sun was up and they were running around and nursing with mama. And the neighbors were so excited...it was just...It was just the most amazing feeling, like I didn't give birth, but I felt like they were mine," she said.

Tucker has read about twin horses online, and knows how rare they are. So she's been keeping a close eye on the two, and is making sure Betty Girl, the mom, is taking to motherhood.

"I don't know if she's got enough milk yet, but we're gonna try to bucket feed them. But they're nursing really good. She's a great mama. She has really taken care of them. So I hope they just make it past these critical weeks," said Tucker.

She said the first few weeks are very important for the horses' development. The smaller horse, which Tucker calls "the baby," has taken to bucket feeding, which is a good sign for the timid little one.

Just a couple of days after the horses were born, Tucker said they already have different personalities.

"The older one, I could tell from birth when I came out was a little more curious than the other one. She was sniffing around, seeing who I was. The little miniature one, she was kind of shy. Standoff-ish," she said.

Tucker says the twins were born only about 20-minutes apart. She hasn't named the horses yet, but says she's trying to come up with some good Easter names. In the meantime, the twins will have to get lots of rest as they continue to grow.

Deer fight looks like a cat fight — you'll see what we mean

What's a young buck to do when he's peeved off but has no antlers or serious weaponry yet to make his point? Slap fight of course! Looking more like a couple of cheerleaders hashing it out post-game, these boys are battling to dominate the herd, Fight Club-style. The quarrel came to fisticuffs in Tomar Park in Sioux Falls, SD, where a KELOLAND TV cameraman captured it on video. And while the deer on the right looks like the sore loser tumbling backwards into the bleachers, lanky legs flying, it's actually the tough guy on the left who ended up with an injured front leg.[Source]

16 cringe-worthy photos show situations about to end very badly

You don't have to be psychic to know that these pictures were snapped just moments before things got ugly. Like, screaming-at-the-ambulance-to- drive-faster, showing-future-grandkids-the-s cars, brains-shouting-“CTRL+Z”— that kind of badly. We have to commend the photographers for their sense of timing, but we also have to raise an eyebrow as to exactly why they're letting this crazy stuff go down. Sure, art is pain. But at a certain point, you should probably throw down the camera and tell those guys not to shoot each other in the stomach with a toilet plunger. Take a look at all 16 pictures to see the moment right before a bad idea becomes a terrible memory.

Fracking just might be causing earthquakes

As if fracking weren't already controversial enough, now it just might be causing earthquakes. Between 1972 and 2008, Oklahoma (a fracking state) averaged just a couple earthquakes per year. But by 2011, that number had exploded to well over a thousand, including a 5.7 magnitude shaker. These earthquake swarms are showing up in other fracking states, too, and many scientists say there is plenty of data pointing to fracking — a method of releasing oil or gas from rock by forcing liquid (usually containing sand) into the rock — as the culprit. The oil and gas industry denies they're responsible.[Source]

Worst U.S. cities for allergy sufferers

(CNN)-- Things aren't looking good for people with allergies in Tennessee. Not only is the pollen apocalypse on its way, three of the state's major cities made the Asthma and Allergy Foundation's annual list of the 10 worst places for spring allergy sufferers.

These so-called allergy capitals are ranked based on pollen levels, use of allergy medications and the number of board-certified allergists in the areas, according to a foundation statement.

Everyone in the United States can expect their allergies to be worse this year, thanks to an unusually wet winter, the foundation says.

"Severe weather patterns can bring higher temperatures, higher pollen levels and increased exposure to mold, resulting in spring allergies that can peak stronger and last longer," Dr. Bill Berger, a California allergist, said in the statement.

Here are the top 10 worst allergy cities for 2013:
1. Jackson, Mississippi
2. Knoxville, Tennessee
3. Chattanooga, Tennessee
4. McAllen, Texas
5. Louisville, Kentucky
6. Wichita, Kansas
7. Dayton, Ohio
8. Memphis, Tennessee
9. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
10. Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Residents in Springfield, Massachusetts; Buffalo, New York; and Grand Rapids, Michigan, may face more severe cases than they have in years past. These cities all jumped at least 10 spots up on the list from the spring of 2012.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation also releases a list every year of the worst cities for fall allergy sufferers. The spring allergy capitals are based on tree pollen counts, while the fall cities are ranked on ragweed pollen counts from September through November of the previous years. Many of the cities on the fall list are on the spring list, but there are a few differences.
1. Louisville, Kentucky
2. Wichita, Kansas
3. Knoxville, Tennessee
4. Jackson, Mississippi
5. McAllen, Texas
6. Dayton, Ohio
7. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
8. Memphis, Tennessee
9. Madison, Wisconsin
10. Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Hope everyone gets out and enjoys the gorgeous day our Creator has given us. I am gone for the day. Enjoy yours. I hope to catch some of you later. A few words of wisdom: lol

Take a little good Advice from an old Farmer:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered... not yelled.

Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around..

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

Every time they set off underground shots in a well close to my shack, it felt like earthquakes...they would jar you out of your chair. They must really put the powder to those holes..or whatever they do. I have set off shots using conventional blasting materials and its nowhere close to the percussion of gas well shots. I'v not heard or felt a blast in a month or so.
They must have shattered the rock enough and are on gas now. I'm glad they're through fracking around up there.
Enjoy your spring little lady!

Good afternoon,my fine feathered friends. Beautiful day today. Glad that Abeliever is back. AW must be outside today doing his chores. Me, I'm having a lazy day and need to get moving. More coffee might do the trick. All kinds of birds, but mostly starlings, blackbirds, and grackles, are peppering the lawn. Looks like an Alfred Hitchcock movie here. Too much of a good thing leaves a lot of guano.

I have been out since daylight cleaning out an old tromped down fence line full of vines so that I can run the tiller right up to where the old fence and vines were. It is a tiller that goes behind the tractor and the vines and wire would just wind around and be a mess to take out.

Good afternoon AB. This was mainly good advice but just a couple I don't necessarily agree with. That being:

Life is not simpler if you just plow around a stump. Burn the thing and then it won't be there for years for you to run over and hurt yourself or tear up your equipment. Same with "stump" people, burn them and move on... LOL

Don't worry about making a fence horse high, pig tight, or bull strong. Just get rid of all 3 and get some chickens. LOL

This is so true,especially the last sentence. We have to stand our ground. Young people don't understand this right now. Let them get older(if they make it),they will know then. That's if it wouldn't be to late.

I was going to comment on that last sentence too, but did not. I totally agree with it. I am not going to fight to try to prove my manhood, I have had my manhood for many years.

But I just might be like the old guy that went into a club and some smart punk started picking on him and said "I know Karate". The old guy said "So What? I know tire tool" LOL

Oh, I hate vines. Not only do they tangle up, you can't kill'em. I have vines around the house that the previous owner planted. I have cursed those vines for 15 years. I have tried to poison them, pour salt and bleach on them, pull them up by their neverending roots, and the best I can do is use a weed eater after mowing as close to the house as possible. They might be good for something, though. If a sinkhole ever opens underfoot, I can always climb those danged vines topside. Lala P.S. I have some nasty vines that have climbed up a couple of trees. Not only have they taken over the trees, the vine actually grafted itself to the trees. What the heck are those alien things. Only in Kentucky,and I never saw the likes of them anywhere else!!!

Please send a signal to the birds at my place that you have seeds. I am infested with birds. I love 'em, but enough is enough. How have you been sleeping lately. I stayed up half the night and woke up early. Tried to take a nap this afternoon, and nope, nothing, still wide awake but exhausted..

Well, I would do some sort of smoke signals, but I'm afraid they wouldn't see it. Sleep is NOT my friend. I have been working 6am to 3pm, and so I was getting up at 4am. So sleeping from 2am to 4am. Just tired. Now I will go back to 8am to 7pm, maybe I can sleep later. I dunno.
