    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Think that one's probably death, looks too well fed for famine, too healthy for pestilence, and not well enough armed for the other one. Cool pic!

    Great horse Linyera. I bet he can run like a scalded cat. Tussock the word you were after is gelding

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I just conducted a wee experiment at home showing my wife and daughter and son this photo in turn and saying this is in Argentina what do you notice about the photo?

    The wife said "is that a puma"? and Asked what else do you notice and after a while she saw the dog.

    asked my daughter.... Is that a cat on the horse?

    Asked my son....."thats a huge horse" "whats that head on it(the cat)"? and "the dog is on the wrong side of the fence and it looks like the seat strap is undone"

    Apples dont fall to far from the trees and it was a plain gender win to notice the cat straight off.

    There is nothing quite like riding hands and heels flat out though a forest or down a beach jumping logs. Fantastic fun.

    If the 1.83m is measured at the withers, that's 18 hands. Yup, a big horse.

    He's standing with is front legs on higher ground though, so that exaggerates the height.

    If the horse is 1.83, how tall is the guy? He must be fairly tall too because everything looks in proportion.
    My horse would need to be "well restrained" to keep it still for the picture with that cat on it. He's ok with a pig or deer but a cat would be asking for trouble I think.
