    No, actually the kitten has taken over my house now.

    He tried to jump on one of the big barn cats, but the cat jumped back and sent the old rooster running. I wish we had that on video.

    Honestly I'll take the snow over big spiders/web and flying roaches. The only pest we've got around the barn are rabbits. Those little buggers get into the paddock, befriend the horses, and stick around forever. The barn cats won't go in the paddocks with the horses so the rabbits go in at feeding to get a free meal and are safe from the cats.

    LOL just goes to show you it is whatever you are used to. Don't want to shovel snow!!!

    Cacowgirl...thanks! It is helping.

    Celeste - what a cute little Barred Rock rooster! My grandma had some chickens with one of those roosters. OMG he attacked me when I was about 12. Grandma had said to take a tomato stick with me to collect the eggs. OMG he kept flying at me over and over - I was teeing off with him the best I could and screaming like a banshee. Grandma came and kicked his butt for me...but I did break two of his little spikes on his comb. My younger sister Lisa used to just crack up over that story...I thought it was less funny.

    This one has not attacked me, but he did jump on the DH. He had a bucket of water in his hand and soaked him down. He hasn't bothered anybody since then. He follows me around hoping for a handout. He loves horse food and dog food. He's not too impressed with chicken food and prefers not to eat it.

    LOL Celeste he was a quick learner!!!

    My dad used to have game cocks and hens....to the tune of about 60 in individual pens. I had to feed them everyday in return for a horse. Dang...Daddy had coonhounds or beagles depending on what kind of hunting he was into at the moment. Used to feed all of his critters. He went out of town when I was around 22 or so. I was bending down filling water buckets and DANG I got zapped on the head with his hot wire. OMG my dad had a sick sense of humor - he thought that was hilarious!

    I am glad you got to respond before I let my un-sanctified thoughts escape.

    Despite the temperatures feeling like I have been transported south to live with Denise, I have gotten some saddle time in!

    Took Dream out both yesterday and today. It was hot as hell, grossly humid, and the bugs are simply god-awful. Tried riding with a flymask on her today, so at least her head wasn't bleeding when we were done. I was tempted to try to find one for myself, as the buggers were even biting me thru the vents in my helmet!!

    The logging roads that had been impassable are open again, but what had been lovely footing is now left looking like this:



    Better than not being able to use the trails at all I guess, but pretty frustrating. My DH isn't sure how they got away with logging the area and not reseeding everything!

    Today I went the opposite direction and braved the jungle trails. Ironically, the bugs got wiped away by the foliage we had to go thru, so bushwhacking was almost comfortable (at least until the next blasted sticker bush). Still had a climb to contend with though.




    After finishing with Dream, I got on Gamer! This was ride #5. I got quite a bit of trot and even some canter!!

    Come down in the winter when it is too cold up there Dawn. Dreams will love it at the ranch. All of the horses look just like her!
