It seemed to work for me so why should I hit the ground in any other sort of way?

Well, no new news. As far as how can mice eat that much food is I guess they either are hording it or carrying it out to the family, ha ha. Anyway, I think traps will just be a fact of life for us.

You guys really crack me up!

I havent been described as that, but safe to assume I can't be too far off of it I had a few dressage lessons a few years ago and all I got was an exasperated sigh and "you'd know you were riding racehorses!!" before getting 100 things shouted at me in the space of 30 seconds

I would guarantee you will find a few hiding places around. I'm thinking you should send hubby on a holiday (tents are cheap) and get a cat for a few weeks haha! Or a new dog - My old male boxer used to be the most amazing mouser I ever met, he used to come to work with me and catch several mice a day just for fun. Rip Oscar I miss that darned dog!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Could also be a pack rat. They love to hoard stuff! Not to freak you out or something.

As far as coming off a horse gracefully... Nope! I usually manage to come off in the most awkward ways. I could give anyone in my family laughing fits! But hey, when I don't fall off, I can ride an Arabian/QH bareback at a full out gallop (riding the spooks, and stops) for a 1/4 mile with out falling off (he finally stopped). I can ride a few crowhops bareback, lots of big spooks with a saddle, and my proudest accomplishment, I can ride a trot bareback with out losing my balance. This is all when I'm in practice mind you, it's going to be a lot of fun when I get back into serious riding in the spring.

We had a short red haired Dachshund that was a great mouser, but he never killed them. He would maim them then play with them for a few minutes. Albeit, my wife never fully appreciated him wanting her praise when he brought them and laid them ON her feet.

That was cheap entertainment for all of about 30 seconds each time.


He passed away at the ripe old age of 19 back in 2006. None of our other dogs are mousers.
