    So I finally worked myself up to cantering bareback today - it was awesome! Trooper took great care of me as usual. After that we went on a long trail ride, with rain coming down on and off.
    This afternoon we had severe thunderstorms and lost power, but thankfully the horses are fine, only a little water got in the barn. Weather is forecast to be great tomorrow so hopefully some more riding.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend

    Hope Stellas still making good progress
    Susan - Hope your staying afloat - there are more than enough good vibes going out for you from this forum to keep an army of demons away. You will survive and be stronger for it gal
    CW - I wish you could get this lesson thing sorted, must be so frustrating
    Grace - Good luck with the moving and the lameness issue
    Emm - Thank goodness it was just watermelon. I wonder how he got that there - at least it was better than varmint poo or something dead he's rolled in
    Good thoughts to everyone, have a great weekend
    There it is Jaydee. I did not need my glasses nor is it a critter (Squirrel) I mannaged to get a shot of it entering the house Now to decide what to do with it. If I can't tame it I will have to dispose of it. Tried catching it and it went balistic. James my cat has taken very little notice. It is a delema as I can't have a stray, wild cat hanging around. Without treatment they spread germs and kill off the bird life. This thing must have followed James in the other night.

    Jfmnyc, great job! Isn't it a great feeling?

    Emm....i laughed so hard when I read about the watermelon. I even read it to my hubby.

    I am on vacation this week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. No horse stories from me this week. Just relaxing, getting some sun, and gearing up for my first judged trail ride the day I get back next Saturday.
    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    Hi all! I've been so busy working nights and been out of town at our place up north so haven't been able to be here for awhile. I read back a little and there's so much to respond to I'll never catch up! So, all I can say is....

    I love coming here! I've been feeling a little frazzled and must say that Stan's answers to my questions about batteries and light bulbs now makes perfect sense. So I vow never to be annoyed by it again.
    Foxhunter, it sounds like you can work me under the table. Rub some Emu oil on the muscles.
    CW, how's the riding coming along?
    Susan, my thoughts are with you.
    Newbees, Welcome!
    To everyone else, hope all is going well. We're just fighting the heat here in Az.

    Stan, here in the US we have live animal traps. Perhaps you could get one sized big enough to sit exactly in front of the kitty door, and then when guest kitty comes in, it would trip the trap door and be locked inside your live trap. With a concrete block or two on top, it's pretty much going to stay there until you can move it. 32 in Large 1 Door Live Animal Trap | Havahart I would be freaking out if there was a stray cat getting inside! (I'm allergic and besides that I agree totally with you about disease, etc.)

    I have made a decission on the *****. Normally a shotgun is included in the decission process as the way to deal with strays but, on this ocassion and it being so brave, not to mention cute. I am going to trap it and tame it. If that fails, well I can't have it breeding.

    Stan, please give the kitty a chance,he could be a really nice cat.hate to ask but is James neutered?neutered You don't have to say the n word outloud as I can appreciate he might be sensitive about it. I had a cat some years ago that looked like that. He just showed up at the barn one day, called him BC for barn cat, big cat and the little girl that lived next door to me said it was for Brandi's cat.Reincarnation? Call the cat B and see if it responds. Anyway sometimes ballistic just means scared but I know you already know that :)

    Susan, hope you're doing well. Let us know you're ok.

    Finally a break in the heat and humidity and just in time for my first week of unofficial retirement. Farrior comes in the morning, my two are barefoot, don't need any shoes to eat and poop all day :) I think the width of the pony's back has doubled since we got her home and I'm thinking she's going to be a real easy keeper which is wonderful cause Judy Judy Big Ears eats like mad and just stays fit looking,not fat.
    Well better go for now but so looking forward to having time to play with Judy :)
