The Senior Selection Committee has selected an Senior Open Squad of 6 Men and 6 ladies for the 2011 World Cup in England. This is an open squad and the final team will be announced after Club Champs at Noodsberg.

NZ WORLD CUP SQUAD UPDATE
With six months of the year already over preparations for the 2011 World Cup are about to begin for the eight women and six men in the NZ World Cup Squad. The men traveled to Australia in early April to take part in the Barastoc Tournament. This was one of the first chances the men’s side had to play together and see what combination worked best. The ladies get their chance in August when seven out of the eight ladies will be traveling to Australia as a Development Team on the 19th August 2010 to play in the Rose Bowl Competition and compete for the ‘Cooper Memorial Trophy’.

The ‘Cooper Memorial Trophy’ was donated by the Patron of the King Country Polocrosse Association Mr Gilbert Cooper on behalf of himself and his wife Mrs Georgina Cooper as a result of an invitation from the King Country Polocrosse Association to the Queensland Polocrosse Association in 1989. The timber used for the trophy is Totara Burr. Since this date the trophy has been contested between NZ and Queensland at Intermediate and Open level.
The Polocrosse Association of Australia together with the Selection Committee are very
proud to announce the 2011 World Cup Team to compete in the United Kingdom in
July next year.
Congratulations to our World Cup Team

The team was selected on their horsemanship, ball skills, attitude, general play,
personal fitness, versatility and experience.
The Selectors acknowledged the squad of 15 as a very impressive group of young
polocrosse players who our sport should all be very proud of and th
This may be a first…
A couple from Montana were out riding on the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion a Mountain Lion decided that he wanted to stalk the dogs (you’ll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very bad decision. The hunter got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs. With that, the mule took off and decided HE wanted a piece of that lion. That’s when all hell broke loose for the lion. As the lion approached the dogs, the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it to the ground by the throat. The mule then got down on his knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air again, walked back over to the couple (that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride as if nothing had just happened. Fortunately, even though the hunter didn’t get off a shot, his wife got off these four pictures.
Buy a horse that will build your confidence when you first get into the horse business. When people who are just getting started end up buying the wrong horse, things go downhill in a hurry. I can’t tell you how many people buy their first horse, get into trouble, get bucked off, fall off, lose their confidence, sell the horse, sell their saddle, sell the trailer and never want to ride a horse again! Let me save you some trouble right now – buy a horse that will give you confidence. Don’t buy a horse based on emotions because all of those emotions aren’t going to mean a thing when you’re getting drug down the road by that shiny Thoroughbred or when that green-broke filly throws you head first into the dirt. Instead, buy a horse that’s seasoned and uses the thinking side of his brain. Remember, horses teach people, and then people teach horses.

Eyebright is one of my favourite herbs, I have used it as a tea, eyewash and capsules at the first sign of an eye problem. It is an antibacterial and astringent herb, effective in maintaining the health of the optical system.
It is very good for treating a variety of eye problems, conjunctivitis, cataract formation, ulcers, weak eyesight, eye strain and to help remove cysts caused by chronic eye inflammation. Eyebright will strengthen all parts of the eye and provide elasticity to the nerves and optic devices responsible for sight.
Eyebrights antiseptic properties fight infections in the eye. Externally it can be used as a lotion or drops for the eyes or as a compress.
Herbal Compresses are made by soaking a clean cotton cloth in a strong herbal tea and applying it as hot as possible to the affected area. The heat engages the activity of the herbs and opens the pores of the skin for fast assimilation. Alternating hot and cold compresses are also successful therapies, to stimulate nerve function, circulation, veins and capillaries. The hot compress should contain the herbs; the cold compress should be plain.
Steep herbs in an egg cup, open 2 capsules into the cup fill with boiling water to make a strong tea. Strain only the liquid off. Make fresh every day to be used as an eye wash or drops.
Internally it is great to stimulate the liver and can be fed for nasal congestion, catarrh, sinusitis and other congestive states.
Added to the feed give 30-40 grams daily.
Always consult a veterinarian for eye injuries or problems.

The Oklahoma wind was so cold on that early March day, I was just mad at it. Felt like that stiff breeze had a pair of pliers just squeezing like the dickens on the tips of my ears. We had arrived early but the vast parking lot of the church was already jammed. And they had all come ” hundreds of them ” all had come to say good-bye to the Mighty Warrior.
I don’t think I can go to the roping Sunday, I told my friend, Sharon. I have to go to a funeral the day before, and well it’s going to be rough. And I told her about him.
