I inherited a new cat, about 1 year old, and he has no fear of the horses at all which is not a good thing. Herbie, my yearling colt, likes to play with anything he can get his teeth onto, branches of trees, jolly balls, plastic containers and recently I added a shovel handle and shaft that had been broken which he holds by the handle and flips up and down. I am trying to get photos of him doing that but when he sees me he drops it. Well needless to say whenever I go into his pen the cat follows me and rubs up against him while he smells him, he is fascinated by the cat. I am terrified that he is going to grab the cat by its tail or something and flip it around!!!! I caught these shots, very close because I had my long lens on the camera at the time and didnt want to move too far away in case he decided to play rough.

Some photos taken of a statue at the Minnetrista which is on the grounds of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. It is titled "Appeal to the Great Spirit" and was erected in memory of one of the Ball brothers of Ball Jar fame. This is a wonderful place to visit and I am glad that I have discovered it thanks to a friend a few weeks ago!!! I love this statue it is so powerful!!!
