UPDATE: Shakes sister survived her surgery.
Doc is not sure he was able to clear all the tumor out since it was embedded in her brain stem. Chemo and radiation for sure. They also still need to determine were it had migrated from, and deal with that as well. She still has a very long road to travel.

Ruby, I saw your pics, very nice.
No Crocs in that water?

Thank you all again, Shakes appreciates your well wishes and prayers.

The closest thing to crocs in that area are water monitors. HUGE ones. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AxIgKyweIkg/TecOHPr... But fortunately they move away when the horses approach

Not much of a rum drinker, prefer scotch or Jameson's neat.
Well now, that says it all. Did you know that scotch is aged in old bourbon barrels?
Do say hello to my old grand dad, Johnnie Walker.

Nice pics Ruby, looks like a nice place to ride. No large carnivours I trust?

I did know that and I'm glad to see that something good does finally come out of those barrels.

The closest thing we see to carnivores on our trails, are other people. Lol. It's apparently a Nature Reserve that we ride through. Though I haven't seen any myself, there are small antelope. We often see meerkats and "dassies" (Don't know the English name for them) http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/wp-content...

And I've spotted two snakes in the 5 1/2 years I've been riding there. One I suspect was a Cobra of sorts and the other one was some type of tree snake

We also encounter sheep and cattle as well as other horses along our trails (obviously behind fences), and sometimes fisherman with their dogs, or dogs who got out of their yard to chase the horses

But overall, it's just a peaceful place to ride and have fun :-)

PS - You should see the dogs' faces when this "huge intruder" they've been trying to catch, turns around and runs towards them! The horses love it. But they mostly enjoy having a good canter ("lope") back to the group once the dogs have tucked tail and ran away...

Good morning all.

From the pictures, Ruby, it looks like a beautiful place to ride. The dassie looks to be related to the guinea pig

You know that sounds really great. I mean it,'cause when I rode around the mts. in Idaho, we had to think about coyotes, an occaisional bear, cougars and on a rare event a wolf. Never left without the m29 S&W.
The little critter seems to be a type of marmot, rock chuck kind of thing. Not as cute as a Chinchilla though.
