Holy Turkey Hangover!! I’m surely not the only one who is feeling a little sluggish today after an exciting and exhausting day of family, friends, wine, and lots of stuffing with gravy. Those of you brave enough to go outside today and tackle the Black Friday shops in person, I say God Bless, because I am staying away from town today! Good thing we have the internet for shopping while avoiding the crowds! Be sure to check out our post on Black Friday deals from our favorite sponsors, because now is the time to grab the awesome goods that you’ve been eyeballing all year!! [Black Friday Deals Galore!]

News From Around The Globe:

In the weirdest way to spend your Friday, you can now vote to name the mascots of the Olympic Games in Rio 2016. Rio has released a funny little video of the two mascots (see below) and are now asking for your input on what to call them! If you can’t recognize them, don’t worry because the Olympic mascot is a mixture of “all the Brazilian animals” and is blessed with their many qualities: the agility of the cats, the sway of the monkeys, the grace of the birds. The Paralympic mascot is a magical creature, a “fusion of all the plants in the Brazilian forests”. The names available are: Oba and Eba, Tiba Tuque and Esquindim, and Vinicius and Tom. Go figure. [Vote Here]

Don’t worry Brits, sometimes I wonder what that’s all about too…[Hunter Jumpers Explained]

A new scientific study shows that while soaking hay reduces dust and carbohydrate content, it also significantly increases the bacteria levels. Soaking or steaming-plus-soaking lowers water-soluble carbohydrates, but significantly reduced the hygienic quality of the hay which can potentially compromise the health of the horse.
