WW1 ‘WARHORSE UNDER GAS’ Mask

On April 22, 1915 during their attack on the French, Germany became the first military to utilize chemical warfare with a chlorine gas. Gas masks were used because chemical warfare became widespread.
Warhorses were equipped with Gas masks to protect them from the inhalation of gases such as Phosgene. Horses were vulnerable to the effects of chlorine and vesticatory gases when they stepped out onto the field and had no control over the mask.

Coneygree

Georgia Louise Fine Artist

Coneygree (foaled 23 Feb 2007) is a British Thoroughbred,
  racehorse, who competes in National Hunt races and is undefeated in Chase races. In March 2015, Coneygree became the first novice chaser to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup for more than forty years. Coneygree is a bay horse bred in the United Kingdom by John Oaksey, a leading amateur jockey who later became a successful broadcaster and charity fund-raiser before his death in 2012. Coneygree was from the final crop of foals sired by Karinga Bay, a son of Ardross, who won the Gordon Stakes and finished fifth in the 1990 Epsom Derby.  Coneygree’s dam Plaid Maid won five races and later became a successful broodmare,
producing the Hennessey Gold Cup winner Carruthers. Sara Bradstock described Plaid Maid as a “tiny little mare that we bought for nothing, who people thought was a joke”.
Throughout his racing career Coneygree has been trained at Letcombe Bassett in Oxfordshire by Mark Bradstock, the husband of John Oaksey’s daughter Sara.  He was ridden in all of his early races by Mattie Batchelor.

Lion

Lions spend much of their time resting and are inactive for about 20 hours per day. Although lions can be active at any time, their activity generally peaks after dusk with a period of socializing, grooming, and defecating. Intermittent bursts of activity follow through the night hours until dawn, when hunting most often takes place. They spend an average of two hours a day walking and 50 minutes eating
