In case anyone wanted to know what a lightening strike can do to the body- given that they survive.

Woah

I’ve reblogged this before but I didn’t know it was from a lightning strike. That’s insane.

So guess who’s back?
It’s me!
After that hiatus, I have returned. I thought some things over while I was gone, realized some things, and came to a few decisions. Those aren’t important right now, just know that things have changed a bit.
This blog is still a safe space. I am still Maddie. Nalani is still a nerd.
Now, it just so happens I’m returning two days before my first visit to Sea World Orlando. I decided that, as a little returning gift, I’m going to be accepting some requests of sorts.
I’ve been attempting to plan my day in the most strategic of ways in order to see as many whales as possible. Due to this, you can expect lots of pictures! Now as for the requests…. 
I know many of you don’t have the chance to go to Sea World. Maybe some of you are anticap, and you don’t want to give them your money. I know the pains of not being able to see your favorite whale. 
If you have a favorite whale at SWO, I will be writing urls down on notecards and decorating them, then attempting to take a photo of your whale with the notecard in it. 
This is sort of my way of attempting to give back for all the photos of Nalani that were dedicated to me when I had no hope of ever seeing her.
Feel free to drop me an ask with the three whales you would most like to have a dedicated picture of. I say top three, because there is no guarantee I will be able to see every whale.
I know it isn’t much, but it’s what I’ve got!
Anyway, it’s good to be back.

You are seriously so sweet. Omgd.

holy crap i love you even though i’m not really involved here you were like my favorite whale blog ;3;

I never said it was okay😒 Quite frankly, I hate seeing that done to any animal

God damn, I keep butting in on things. Sorry.

But is this to say you disagree with horse racing? It’s likely they use similar methods in order to breed star horses, right?

I’m no expert on horse racing, so please do correct me if I’m wrong.

EDIT- Please don’t take this as me saying I support horse racing. Frankly, I don’t know enough about it to know whether I do or not. 

No, I really don’t like horse racing either. I sound like a work with PETA “I hate everything that involves animals to work or be a pet”. Though I like pets. I really can’t stand horse racing. Dear god, I know I am going to get someone griping on my ass about my PETA remark.

I’m going to keep asking questions because I just got back and idk it’s nice yknow?

So, how do you feel horses in barrel racing, team pinning, etc.? And how do you feel about the argument that the horses enjoy racing, and that it’s good exercise and fun for them?

Also, how would you feel about horses that work on farms? 

Gaah I don’t know. I haven’t even heard if some of those types of racing. I will give you my answer in a separate post if that’s ok

The breeding process with horses is really pretty different different, since usually retired racing mares are the ones that get bred, and most people just let them breed naturally, but when they are AI-ed it isn’t the same as with orcas. The male is put in a small-ish stall with what is basically a horse fleshlight (aka artificial vajayjay) and they collect the semen from it after to put into an egg,either directly in the brood mare or one that was flushed and will be put into what’s called a recipient mare (All of which is done by a veterinarian specializing in equine animals) So there’s not a ton of human interaction, whereas with whales the bull orca is trained to present his penis and is masturbated by a trainer, and then injected into the female. 

I don’t believe the thoroughbred racing industry allows AI to be used to create racing foals, I may be wrong.

Though letting them ‘breed naturally’ doesn’t mean they get let out into a paddock to do their thing, generally the mare is tied using ankle restraints to prevent her from kicking or moving. She really has no say in the matter.

In AI stallions are collected using, yes, an artificial vagina either from the ground or they are trained to mount an artifical mare.

So with horse breeding there is quite a bit of human interaction, especially with thoroughbred race horses. It’s not much different than what SeaWorld does, to be honest.

I’m not familiar with the thoroughbred industry, I know with quarterhorse racing no reputable breeder use ankle restraints, and they’re just allowed to as you said, do their thing. As for the use of the dummy, they lead it to the dummy and horny stud instinct just kinda takes over. But that might just be with quarter horses, cuz that’s all I’m familiar with, but I do think you’re right about AI not being allowed with thoroughbred.

I do apologizing for not being clear about which type I was talking about, I also bolded reputable because just like with any industry there are people who just suck.

Yeah; I don’t like the thoroughbred industry for a lot of reasons.

Ankle restraints are mainly for the stallion’s safely, but to be honest, there must be something wrong if you have to force an animal to submit to something that should come naturally.

The dummy is scented with mare estrus to trigger the males but it does take some training for them to go through with it. Not all stallions will do it right away.

Sometimes reputable people are hard to find in the horse industry though, again especially with racing. But from what i’ve learned this is how the majority of thoroughbreds are born.

I’m not an expert, someone who actively participates in the racing industry could give more insight on this.

This is exceedingly true, but while I don’t actively participate in it my dad works at a quarter horse farm/breeding facility so my knowledge is what I’ve learned from being there and other farms in my area, I don’t think that horse racing is inherently cruel but there are a lot of changes that could and should be made to improve it and make it less stressful etc. for the animals.

Spot on. :P
