Hey, it was the closest thing I could find

Passover mazot for celiac patients, rabbinical supervision via the internet, vodka with non-kosher dairy components and second-rate Chinese seafood as kosher shrimps – these are only some of the gastronomic innovations discussed at the four-day-long kosher convention recently held in Jerusalem at the Renaissance Hotel.

Representatives and Rabbis from 40 countries attended the convention, which was organized by the kashrut institute Maskil L’David.

The goal of the convention was to exchange information and share opinions about innovations in food technology, and to set new standards with regards to how to deal with genetic engineering of food products.

Rabbi Akiva Yosef Padwa, a world renowned expert on the kashrut of alcoholic beverages, shared his recently acquired knowledge of some alcohol factories mixing horse milk into drinks. Link (via Days That End in Y)

My mother spent a lot of time on a farm when she was a teen, and loves to tell me about the times she tasted mare’s milk, which is apparently rather sweet and not unlike Carnation.

Oh, come ON

That's really convincing. NOT.

From Spluch:

The owner of this “Zebra” claims that it’s from Africa and was charging 5 bucks per ride. Many parents claim that from one look they can tell that it’s a white horse with black stripes painted on it, but they don’t complain since their children are having a great time.

I suppose it’s harmless so long as everyone’s happy…

Animal heroes

ribbon Three dogs and a cat were recently inducted into Purina’s Animal Hall of Fame for feats of bravery and determination that saved lives. Since 1978, the Hall of Fame has celebrated 129 critters: 106 dogs, 22 cats…and one horse, in 1978:

INDIAN RED, Morgan/Quarter Horse, is the first and only horse to be inducted into the Purina Animal Hall of Fame. He drew attention to a helpless 77-year-old woman who had collapsed and fallen in a snow-covered ditch on a country road one dark winter night.

Have you heard of any other lifesaving horses or daring feats? Bridlepath would love to hear from you!
