You would think after ten grand in doc bills I would of gotten the boot~ ha ha!!!!
My gelding I had for so lonnng I don't know??? :( that's what hurts. He took them both to this persons house that does auctions...And she said they were both to good looking to go to an auction so she gave the mare to a person I know. "So I know she is okay" But the gelding I just heard that he was w/a family that had kids and he is a companion to another horse...Thats all I know. Annnnndddd its a waste for both of them because I PUT alot of time in the both of them to get them where they were..The accident was totally my fault the poor mare was shaking and scared to death when I went off and she tried not to step on me..Yea your right though arabs do get a bad rap in this area where we live. Everyone is into quarters, and paints..Some thoroughbreds...I have two Thoroughbred ranches I live next too for racing...

Good thing you got those horses! Straw has no nutrients for them..
Six six is tall, my son is 6'4 and my horse is a good size for him..

Same here mine is not a tool he's for pleasure, my soul..
Married into 1800acres we live on here..."Recently sold to cattleman" But 40 is secure we are living on and another 40 down there where I have mine staying at is secure and separate from the 1800.. So yea same property just different area of living quarters..I go down and feed mornings she does it at night..So I am kinda earning my keep for boarding there..And they love my horse so enjoy getting to see him daily there..All I need is a fence and I could have him here but not sure if we are going to stay anymore? We would love to buy somewhere in Nevada area...I don't like California anymore "laws and prices of crap"
we too are looking at Nevada or Arizona
It depends for us where work is. We even considered what you guys are doing, gone for the workweek, home on weekends. I guess I could deal with it. Get him a travel trailer....hmmm.........

That's neat you are thinking that way too! Yea my H does the out of town work..He would still have too even if we moved but we would be out of cali..
We have a travel trlr its not being used now but he would save money using it instead of using all his comp for rms.
"They if yours worked in cali" would have to commute over the Donner Pass..I hear it gets hairy in the winter months..I am so use to him being gone during the wk I don't know what I would do if he were home everynight??? Lol!!!! He has been doing it for 15yrs or better..

We had somewhat decided to not do that anymore after 8 years of him in Korea and me in Italy, seeing each other "live" twice a year for ten days, minus the jetlag....

Here is a pic my son w/Charlie when I first got him back in Aug of last yr..I had put a saddle on him for the first time not knowing his knowledge or where this horse was at during this time...Ha ha my son hopped up and sat in the seat - I was freaking out thinking the horse was going to take off bucking..He didnt though, I just made him get down lol! I don't have any of me riding ugh! Because usually I am the one that's always taking pictures. I'll have to get some this summer.

Wasn't easy at times. But we survived.
The positive thing about all that is, when he has to go away for a week or two, to school, it doesn't phase me a bit. Unless, of course, roofs blow down or the like.

Nice guy
And I envy you for the pastures. And trees. And hills. And the clear air.
Although I can't complain, this morning I smelled freshly cut hay instead of dairy. And it was somewhat clear air.
Oh, Pacheco Pass....ask your hubby. He should know it.

It is beautiful here now I agree! I do love the greenery~ Ever so often I go out and just look..We wont have all this soon as it starts warming up it will turn yellow..This is the best time of the year right now.
Pacheco does sound familiar - I will ask him lol!!

Here is a pic of Monday..I just took these for fb
And a pic down by the lower rd..The property where my horse is at.
Maybe one day you can make it out for a trail ride w/me?! Who knows??
We sold the majority of the property here but I still have ACCESS to it! Tee-heeee....
I think the new buyer is going to keep it the same as it and use it for cattle..I think I heard he may put in a cabin up here "I am guessing for hunting or vacationing?"
