I want a kitten!

But I have enough trouble finding rental accommodation with a dog, I don't think a cat would make it any easier

I'd be good for my dog though, she loves cats, she always plays with my mothers and they chase each other around and she licks him all over.

Oh I love the kittens. Too bad you can't take more although I totally understand. Oh by the way I have internet at my house now so I can upload like a billion pictures of Lizzy. Hehe. And probably my dog too. I really think she is just the cutest thing ever.

Ahh school starts Monday. I am not looking forward to it.

Oh I'm just getting my generals out of the way now then either a bs in finance or accounting. Notice how they call it a bs lol. Pretty sure that's what it is,

But the Lizzy dear below. Taken today after our ride. Munching on some alfalfa after her dinner.

Ahh isnt she cute!! :)

Do you have problems with keeping that little white nose from getting burnt? I usually use a fly mask but they get filthy unless I clean it like everyday.

Chica's nose and around her lips gets sunburned and chapped. Which reminds me,I was supposed to get more sunscreen when I was in town today,oops.

Lizzy is a cutie. Her color and face remind me of the sweet old Saddlebred mare I learned to ride on.

I don't post much but I need to rant:

Why don't boot makers design boots for people with large calves? I'm looking for a nice pair of tall boots and all I can get are a pair of Ariats but they need to be stretched a centimetre and a half. Now I've found a boot maker who said that wouldn't be a problem but it's so irritating that you can't buy them off the rack.

I'm pretty sure most riders have big, muscley calves and can't squeeze into tiny boots. Mine are a good 38cm and I can't afford to drop over $1000 for a pair of customs! OK my calves are bigger than most because it runs in the family but you get my drift.

I know exactly what you mean,Gilly! I have very muscular calves,and have the hardest time finding boots that are comfortable in that area. And no way can I afford to fork out money for a custom job.

I never tried sunscreen or zinc because I always thought just like our sunscreen it would only last a few hours and not a whole day, is that true?
I just can't be going out to nyx every few hours to put sunscreen on her nose lol. Fly mask might be my only option. :l (if she even gets burnt)

That's a pain about your boots! I have a friend who has to get all her shoes custom made cos she has a slightly wider foot than most people.
