@su.krita asked for some footage of the spindle. This isn’t much but I wanted to put up something while I remembered. For more information, the 15th century spinning and Hershey fiber arts blogs are good sources, as are the books by EJW Barber (which are awesome for all kinds of reasons). Let me know if there’s anything else you’re particularly curious about!
What a day for the chestnuts at the Breeders Cup! Accelerate and Monomoy girl, join Enable as the only favorites to win on Saturday. Accelerate ran amazing, beating Gunnevera who was brilliant in second with Thunder Snow for third in the Classic. Monomoy Girl was hand ridden in her Distaff victory over Wat Cat with fellow 3yo Midnight Bisou in third. This years breeders cup was so thrilling and full of a lot of unique things- like Enable winning the turf, Roy H and Stormy Liberal winning back to back for the same trainer, Draydsn Van Dyke getting his first Breeders cup, And am many others. What an excellent two days of racing.
