    This morning was not a good start to New Years week. I decided to go horseback riding, something I haven't done in many years, and which Mrs. Chandler warned me was not a good idea, but I refused to let her hold me back. It turned out to be a big mistake! I got on the horse and started out slowly, but then we went a little faster; and before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. I couldn't take the pace and fell off, but caught my foot in the stirrup with the...

    It's an unlikely friendship at a zoo right here in Maine, a horse and a camel. Caesar lives at the Pony X-Press Zoo in Winslow. The 5-year-old camel is a main attraction for the traveling zoo, but he also serves another purpose. Ed Papsis says they've had Dolly on and off for 10 years. "She's probably the only horse that has a Seeing Eye camel, she unfortunately has gone blind," Papsis said. Caesar needed company, and Dolly needed a guide. "We put the horse in there and she just kind of bonded with him and he bonded with her," Papsis...

    Dutch Olympic medalist Adelinde Cornelissen has been forced to withdraw her dressage horse from the Rio games after it contracted a toxic fever. Cornelissen said the problem with Parzival, a 19-year-old Jazz gelding who won individual silver and team bronze at London 2012, was believed to stem from a bite from a mosquito or a spider. She retired from the competition after just a handful of movements. Cornelissen said the fever started the day before the event began when the horse had a fever of over 40 degrees.

    The geology of the site, as well as pollen and algae finds, suggest that the hunter-gatherers encountered the mastodon next to a small pond that both humans and animals used as a water source, the researchers believe. Waters said that the prehistoric "people knew how to find game, fresh water and materials for making tools. These people were well adapted to this environment. The site is a slam-dunk pre-Clovis site with unequivocal artifacts, clear stratigraphy and thorough dating." Another research team previously excavated the site and found what they believed were dog remains, so dogs "would most likely have been...

    FREMONT, Calif.--California firefighters rappelled down a steep ravine to rescue a days-old horse that was trapped for two days with a broken pelvis. The San Jose Mercury News reports the horse is less than a week old and is recovering after its ordeal. The colt, dubbed Valentine because it was rescued on the holiday, was stranded in a pool of water when animal control officers and firefighters fished him out Sunday. Valentine will be taken to the University California at Davis for surgery. The operation will cost about $10,000 and the Tri-City Animal Shelter is taking donations to cover the...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Just days ago, the nearly 1,300-pound, powerful jumping horse with a shiny chestnut coat named Phedras de Blondel arrived at his new home in the U.S., a farm owned by a champion rider in Florida. On Sunday morning, his owner discovered a horrific scene near his stall: the 12-year-old gelding had been slaughtered and butchered, most likely for his meat. Only his head and neck were left intact. Now, detectives are trying to find the perpetrators. “What they did to this horse had nothing to do with his value,” Debbie Stephens, who owns the 27-acre...
