    Congratulations RAR!

    There is actually a cur dog belonging to a member who has her colors, as a joke. The dog wears a green shirt with the colors to some parties.

    Default Congrats from Texas

    Excellent news!! I know colors go on your collar: does Mr. Blondie get a matching (but extremely subdued and tasteful) browband?

    Don't know about that...

    Thanks, all, for the congratulations and the continuing support over the years.

    I'm hoping that the colors will end up being like Dumbo's white feather, and next season Mr. Blondie & I will be flying

    Mr. RAR asked, after our adventure at the Western Hunt Challenge, "Why do you keep doing this?"

    "Because it's so much fun when it goes well!"

    Besides, I provide some valuable services:

    1. I recruit other beginners so that I have someone to ride with.
    2. I provide entertaining stories.
    3. I allow everyone else to feel like SUCH better riders <G>

    Well, as the slowest rider at the back of the short bus, I'm really glad you've invited me and Whiskey to tag along with you! It's been a blast. Congrats on getting your colors.

    Pigeons, rats, and humans, oh, my! I was thinking along the operant conditioning lines, and the whole "maintained by consequences" bit. Hunting seems to provide interval, variable reinforcement for R-A-R.

    Or, maybe not? Psychology is not my gig.
