    I use the sunscreen that is supposed to last at least 8 hours,so I usually put it on later in the morning and it lasts for the part of the day that the sun is at it's strongest. I admit,there are days when I forget to put it on,hence Chica's slightly peeling nose..

    Fortunately Wyn doesn't seem to get burnt on her nose... though she does have quite a bit of dark skin around her muzzle. There are lots of treed/shady areas she could graze in but she seems to prefer being in the wide open spot.

    Gilly - I was wondering where you were! That's too bad about the boots... at least they can be stretched But it sucks not being able to find things off-the-rack that work. I feel your pain - I have to buy pants at a specialty store. (stupid long legs...)

    Since we're talking about noses/sunscreen - have a picture of Wyn's nose.

    I got a job today! It's nothing special, just a couple of shifts a week at a cool cafe, but I'm really excited! I don't start for another week though.

    Tall boots never fit my calves either, I normally just get gaiters and boots. But actually a lot of shoes don't fit my foot well, I have this weird toe and things just don't fit right and with about 90% of my shoes, after half an hour it hurts. I was thinking of maybe getting a pair of boots made, does anyone have any idea what kind of price range i'd be looking at (in Australia)? I know it wouldn't be cheap.

    Another question, is any one on here a high school teacher?

    Failbhe - I'm pretty much the epitome of a ninja poster. I started this thread for everyone else and not for me! I like reading what people have to say so I can learn things. And for my own amusement. So I'm here...just under the radar...

    Sasika - have you heard of Mous boots? I saw their stall at the Queensland Festival of Dressage but I didn't dare get myself fitted.

    Thanks everyone. She certainly knows she's cute. I don't put anything on her for sunscreen. I started but she rubbed it off on everything so I didn't want her to get a darn sliver from the wood. I have a long nose mask but she won't keep that thing on. I'm more concerned about her eyes so she gets a regular fly mask I know she will keep on. No burns yet. It gets a little pink but not scabed or pealing.

    I have the same problem with boots. My calves are 15inches wide but I take a 7 shoe. So sometimes the wide isn't wide enough because my foot is too small. But for tall boots I love my saxon boots. They actually fit. They are starting to make leather boots so I'm waiting until they make some all leather dress boots.

    I just found the perfect kitten for me!


    Isn't he cute? Jenko's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?

    Awe he's adorable. Is it harder to find somewhere to live with a cat instead of a dog? Here typically every where allows cats but to find a rental that allows dogs is almost impossible. It's the reason we are stuck where we currently live.

    Generally its easier to find somewhere with a cat, but in the area I live lots of people are anti-cat. So its actually easier to find somewhere with a dog, but really, most people who are okay with dogs are okay with cats.

    I don't know though, I'd love a little kitten though, and it could play with my puppy and it would all be wonderful. I always had cats growing up, and took my old cat with me when I moved out but he died a few years ago

    My mum still has one of "my" cats, a kitten of a cat we found on the side of the road as a teenager. He lived with me for a while when my mother was travelling, but he's always felt like her cat. I'd actually like to take him with me but he's not happy with my dog, and is very timid. Besides, he's very happy where my mum lives with a big quiet yard, and he gets along with my mothers cat and dog well.
