THE MOST METAL HORSES IN THE WORLD
Well, here was a fun e-mail to get from the reader known as Strapping Young Lad:
I grew up on Long Island on a horse breeding farm called Fast Break Farms. We’re pretty small; we usually only have enough room for about 10 horses. My parents were looking for a name for their new racing horse, and I suggested Cloudkicker. My parents loved it, and thought it was cute (?!). We’ve also had one horse named In Flames (who, much like the band, started off promising but sucks now) and another named Shagrath (Shaggy for short). I’m trying to get my parents to name all of our new horses after metal bands… I think it would be pretty sweet!”
We agree! So we asked SYL to send us some pics of the horses in question, and, yay for us, he obliged!
Shagroth (a.k.a. “Shaggy”) looks eeeeebbbbbiiilllll…
Unfortunately, SYL wasn’t able to get us any pictures of In Flames, ’cause he is apparently injured and has retired to a farm in Virginia. Hopefully, “a farm in Virginia” isn’t a euphemism for “the glue factory.”
ANYWAY, pretty cool! Thanks to SYL for sending these in!
