Hey I'm from the Bay Area originally (moved to OR a year and a half ago) I lived in Concord and boarded my horses in Walnut Creek! I actually lived in Livermore for a little while as well
. Unfortunately I'm not going to be very helpful at the moment , My BO in the WC was a clipping master, but she sold the place and I lost touch
One of my best friends is also from the Bay although she lives in Las Vegas now, but I'll see if she knows anyone!
