bit different today but i found this a tad fascinating 😁
#tdil the reason why people who handle birds of prey always wear their glove on the left arm.
the glove is actually called a ‘raptor glove’ 😎 (possibly the coolest name in history) or a gauntlet (also stupidly cool) and it’s always worn on the left arm, regardless of country, bird size, day of the week … etc etc. ever wondered why? no? neither had i 🙃.
regardless, i’m going to tell you the reason because i found it interesting 👍🏻. it’s always worn on the left because in the olden days, falconers on horseback would need their right hand free to hold the reins and military falconers would need their right hand free to grab their sword ⚔️.
it literally all comes down to tradition 🙂. it also just seems to make sense that – if you’re right handed at least – you keep your right hand free to do stuff … basically, the dudes back in time just used their noggin 😅.
night y’all 🙌🏻 #tdil
