    Ar my previous barn we had a lovely gray that we would see popping in and out of the stalls through the grain hole. I'm sure she snapped up a lot of mice.

    It sounds like a great idea to me. I go for a massage every 4-6 weeks. It's more important to me than a haircut, which I get only once a year :)
