It’s Not Always Scotland Jul 22, 2014 by Pye O’Malley
During my frequent travels through the internet world, fulfilling my mission to explore strange Celtic worlds, to seek new Celtic life and civilization, etc., etc., I sometimes see pictures that are mistakenly identified and shared–over and over again–as “Scotland”. SPOILER ALERT: Despite what you may have heard, the things you see on the net are not always true or correct. (via It’s Not Always Scotland | Wild Eyed Southern Celt)

Welsh Cob, section D—largest of the Welsh breeds, must be at least 13.2 hands high. The Welsh Cob was part of the string of mounts for the Welsh knights during the 15th century. A Welsh Cob was used to lead the mighty fighting horses known as destriers. As the destrier’s natural gait was the trot, Welsh Cobs had to cover great distances matching the war horse stride-for-stride at the trot. To this day, the forceful ground covering trot of the cob is legendary. Their substance made them popular mounts for British infantry and for pulling heavy guns and equipment through rugged terrain up until 30 or 40 years ago. Prior to the automobile, the Welsh Cob was the quickest transport for doctors and businessmen. The Section D cob exceeds 13.2hh with no upper limit on height. A strong and powerful animal, they have gentle natures and are extremely hardy. An ideal mount or driving animal for many adults, the Section D has become a popular choice for dressage, combined training and combined driving. image: Welsh Cob (section D) stallion Jebeth Hitchhikers Guide http://tinyurl.com/pqrkjab

I think I’ll ring for the Scottish Butler this morning…
Pancakes with fresh blueberries and real maple syrup, a small glass of orange juice and hot, black coffee, in my favorite mug.
Did I forget anything?
Nope, that’s a perfect Sunday breakfast in bed
