What kind of draft horse is that!!!!!!  That would be a bull moose. The story is the guy raised him from a calf and now that the bull is full grown he lets him loose every spring to do what bull moose do in spring. Then the bull shows up awhile later and spends the rest of the year working. Smart moose in my book. He gets let out to chase a little tail, then returns home to lots of good food and good shelter. Can’t find a better deal than that!  What a life.

Kazakh eagle hunter.  The practice of hunting with eagles and falcons was almost wiped out by the Soviets who regarded it as a feudal throwback, but thanks to organized eagle-hunting competitions - and a growing interest in Kazakh traditions - the eagle hunters are making a comeback. (V)
