Welcome back, Rob. Glad your ride lesson went so well and as we mentioned yesterday about aching and sore muscles, they are that way because we used them. Its a good thing.
Breyerhillsfarm, welcome and I hope you are able to find your black gelding percheron.
Sue, I'm not sure what kind of miniature elephants you have in the down under to compare to the opossum, but ours is not much different then your possum. It is the scavenger rat of the woods and hangs from tree limbs with its tail to sleep.
Here is a picture of my reference. opossum.jpg
