Behold, This Well-Dressed Horse!

For all of us who just sort of roll out of bed and head to work/school/life every morning, meet the horse put us all to shame.

Morestead, a veteran race horse, got the high fashion treatment by donning a custom three-piece suit to the 2016 Cheltenham Festival.

The suit took four weeks to make and utilized almost 60 of tweed - ten times the amount used for an average man's suit.

The full outfit was designed by British designer Emma Sandham-King, an apprentice of the late Alexander McQueen.

That's straight up bourgie, if I do say so myself.

Morestead was accompanied by champion jockey Sir Tony McCoy for the event's collaborative photoshoot.

Pretty GQ-level, don't you think?

You can check out a full clip of just how Morestead's suit was made in the video embedded above.

Give it a watch, and then let me know:

Which animal should get a custom tweed suit next?

Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Market - Industry Growth, Dynamics, Segmentation and Forecast
According to the new market research report “Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Market by Product (Equipment (Immunoassay Analyzers), Consumables), Technology (Immunoassays, Chromatography-MS), Class of Drugs (Antibiotic Drugs, Bronchodilator Drugs), End User – Global Forecast to 2025″, published by MarketsandMarkets™, the TDM Market is projected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2025 from USD 1.4 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2020 to 2025. Growth Driver: Importance of TDM in Organ Transplant Procedures; Conducting TDM for immunosuppressive medications is an essential tool in the management of patients undergoing solid organ transplantation. A person receiving an organ transplant is prescribed immunosuppressants so that the body does not reject the organ. When administering immunosuppressants, clinicians need to individualize a patient’s drug therapy and ensure an optimal balance between therapeutic efficacy and the probability of adverse effects. Patients present different pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, so achieving this goal with immunosuppressant therapy monitoring can be challenging. TDM is used before administering immunosuppressants as it minimizes the pharmacokinetic component of variability. Improper drug concentrations in immunosuppressants can lead to adverse effects on transplant patients. Supra-therapeutic drug concentrations can put the patient at risk of over-immunosuppression, which may cause infection. On the other hand, sub-therapeutic drug concentrations can cause the recipient’s body to reject an allograft. This inter-individual variability in drug concentrations creates the need for TDM.

Request Sample Pages: https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/requestsampleNew.asp?id=155350443 Immunoassays is expected to hold the largest share of the TDM Market in 2020 Based on technology, segmented into immunoassays and chromatography-MS. In 2019, immunoassays segment accounted for the largest market share, due to the increasing incidence of chronic and infectious diseases and technological innovation. Antiepileptic drugs is expected to hold the largest share of the therapeutic drug monitoring market in 2020 On the basis of class of drug, the TDM Market is segmented into antiepileptic drugs, antibiotic drugs, immunosuppressant drugs, antiarrhythmic drugs, bronchodilator drugs, psychoactive agents, and other drugs. During 2019, antiepileptic drugs held the largest share among the class of drug due to the high complexity and heterogeneity of epilepsy, lack of biological markers or specific clinical signs aside from the frequency of seizures to assess treatment efficacy or toxicity, and the highly complex pharmacokinetics of these drugs. Hospital laboratories segment commanded the largest share of the TDM Market in 2019 By end user, the Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Market is segmented into hospital laboratories, commercial & private laboratories, and other end users. Hospital laboratories accounted for the largest share of the market in 2019. The large share of this segment can be attributed to factors such as the availability of advanced healthcare facilities in hospitals and the rising incidences of chronic diseases.

Bull & Horse vs. Man Physics Wins Every Time!
I have been fortunate to have access to shoot many interesting things in my career. But honestly I'd never shot a rodeo before this past Saturday night in Santa Barbara, CA - as part of the week-long "Old Spanish Days Fiesta". I took my Nikon D4s & Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 lens on a heavy Manfrotto monopod. What I captured blew my mind. I mean these rodeo bull and bronco riders are totally, utterly, unquestionably insane. Take a 1,500 - 1,800 pound animal who is really, really, really pissed off you are on it's back - that's the horses, BTW. Or take a 2,500 to 3,000 pound animal made of SOLID MUSCLE that is pissed off at the universe and everything in it - that's the bulls of course - and strap yourself to it to see how long you can hold on. The end result is rather interesting when you break it down into little 1/1100 second slices of time. You have the 150-190 pound cowboys experiencing Newtonian physics with brutal results. OK seriously - look at the creature in the photo above... does it look like something you'd want to be ANYWHERE near? I mean it looks like it should be chasing Luke Skywalker or Han Solo across some alien landscape trying to suck their brains out or something. Bulls are freaking scary! They are anything but timid. Yeah. Go out into a field with this guy sleeping and try to tip him over - he'll jump up and stomp you flat. What I do really love about shooting with such a long and fast lens is that I can capture the pure terror and regret on each cowboy's face as they stare into the abyss and see death waiting for them. I mean, sure - why not? I wonder what was going through the first group of cowboy's heads when they watched one of their buddies getting launched into the air like a pop-fly-ball in a Major League Baseball game and they decided, "This should be a sport." And what about the first time the situation in the photo sequence above happened? I watched through my camera for almost a full minute as this poor cowboy got his hand pinched and stuck in the rope... he couldn't let go. So this rather large and powerful animal - who wanted nothing to do with some human being being stuck to him - ran around the arena like a cat with a ball of tape stuck to its tail. It totally ruined this guy's shoulder, nearly ripped his arm off. He had to be taken out by ambulance. I'm sure he's going to need a couple of surgeries on his shoulder. And as it is with any concert or major sporting event like boxing... the very best is saved for last. The bull riding! No one could stay on these animals. And no one got off without being batted off like a pesky fly. What was interesting to me was that I was on the ground of the arena, behind a metal gate - but right there with an unobstructed view of the action - and I could see a huge difference in attitude between the horses and the bulls. Horses wanted you off and wanted to get away from you. But the bulls... oh no. You'd obviously insulted their sense of dignity by attempting to ride them. They were out for blood. The second you were off their back they'd turn to come get you. I mean it... these things are freakin' evil. Think about that next time you sit down to a nice big New York Strip or Ribeye steak... You are ingesting evil. LOL. Above - A couple of selfies from where I was shooting. I am now a reformed beef eater. And I've never cared for the taste of horse. :D
