Full Metal Jousting

I went to the Olde English Faire at Wildlife Prairie Park in Peoria, IL today to watch the guys from Full Metal Jousting joust. That's some super awesome stuff right there!

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

They're pretty darned neat aren't they! Those guys brought six of their jousting horses to stay for two nights at our farm while they were here in TX for a few festivals. Those gentle giants are beautiful!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

These guys were at Equine Affaire in Ohio this past April..their booth was right next to ours. One of their best jousters is a woman! Her horse is a bit over 18 hands!

@Endiku: That would've been so awesome!

@waresbear: A couple times. There was this really epic round where both knights broke there lances and got unhorsed - I don't think I've ever seen a crowd go so wild! =P
