    We use air, or spring loading slug guns. The right one with the right slug will drop a possum. The slug has a ballbearing in the front and on impact to the head will release a chemical that kills instantly by entering the blood stream. Not to say that I advicate such drastic action but if the BB did not work, and a cold hosing has not given it the message and my little friend 12gage is to loud, the slug gun might sort your problem. But you did not get that from me. There is also cross bow, Long bow, throwing knives. Not to mention running it over with the truck. But again you did not get that from me. But they can be annoying.

    My friend has a horse that has been known to dispatch the odd dog.

    There is also the tried and true method that works. Gather up its droppings in a paper bag. A nice note indicating it belongs to your dog so I thought you may wish to dispose of it.
    Leave it on the front step right at the point ones foot would land when stepping out doors. With luck the dog may get tied up. I'll deny telling you this as well. People will start to think we in New Zealand are a little wild.

    Little more training with bugs today. The little s--t is beginning to play games, like running away when I have the halter in my hand, copying Stella.

    He loaded with no issues at first, got him out of the paddock and straight in. He did great but backing out was a little weird, half rabbit hop and half walk but he is responding to the word "easy" and slowing down.

    Next it was loading with the saddle on. In he went and out he came, so I put him back in and made him stand. Just as I was about to set the rear bar in place out he came knocked the bar out of my hand and broke it. It made a hell of a noise. So again back into the float, he was reluctant and did a little rear then went in. I'll give him credit when he decides to go in would not like to be infront of him I don't think he would stop. But he is getting good All I have to do now is stand on the ramp, point, and say get in and he responds.

    I did not ride him but did put the saddle on and a crupper. I expected him to kick out but didn't. Walked him around some then made him stand with all the bits dangling. Its been a while since he has been ridden and I got the idea he was a little touchy. I worked his right side and he gave me his head right to the stirrup but the left was stiff, it took quite an effort to get him to give to the left. I was on his right fiddling under his belly when I heard that lip slapping sound The little s--t was eyeing up my butt for a quick grab. Teeth marks on my butt could take some explaining I taught him the error of his ways, gently of course.

    So today was not as eventful as those in the north that have enjoyed good weather for riding but at least down under today it is not windy.

    Well its shoes on both horses on wednesday and bugs has to be ridden. Then next saturday which ever horse gets in the float first goes on a cattle drive. I hope.

    Nicker, would it be confrontational to ask him to stop griping to you about your Mom? If I have something on my mind, I say it, so I struggle to know what is ok for people who are not like that.

    Rick, not at all Hun. It's perfectly fine to disagree with me. I am pretty amazing, but I am not ALWAYS right. LOL. As I just stated to Nicker, if I were upset, you would certainly be clear about that. No worries here.

    Had a busy day with Mum and Mike. We hiked a mountain, they claimed the trail was easy, they lied. My Mum has had a few heart attacks before, so we worry about her getting out of breathe. It was steep in places, quite a lot, and it was rocks we were climbing. I was so worried about Mum, I was asking everyone who passed coming back, if it were managable, and too much further.
    We made it and Mum was ok. And the view was so worth it.

    Then we went to a rodeo tonight. Sadly a bull rider was hurt, he came off and the bull went at his face. I didn't see blood so I think he had a concussion, possibly. Maybe it was the horror of watching, but the clowns seems to take forever to get there, and then it took a while to get the bull out, so the EMTs could come in. I am sure it was fast, but sitting in horror, it seemed to take a long time.
    He was proud and appeared to insist on walking out. Immediately out of the arena, he went down, or was told to. We were walking out as the ambulance left, and it was empty, the lights were off in the back. So I would hope that means he was ok.

    I get the kids back tomorrow, I am looking forward to seeing them again. And then Mum leaves on Tues. :(
