He knows when you are happy. He knows when you are proud. He also knows when you have a carrot.

Wow, you have trail on your property? Awesome.

I'm heading out to my barn soon. I usually go to church on Sun, a.m., but there's some one woman band doing the whole service, I don't have choir, so I'm off to the barn. Yeehaw~~!!!

I've literally had a dream of a piece of property with its own trails or backed up on land with access to them. Here in WV, there's some really pretty country. The property in my recurring dream has a hidden meadow with a stream. I keep thinking I'll run across it some day when I'm driving around in the country, and it will have a "FOR SALE" sign posted.

My barn has around 100 acres of trails through woods...hilly...one section stays muddy all spring. Still, we're blessed to have that space. They have guided trail rides through the woods. Beautiful this time of year. I've been unable to go on long rides due to ongoing issues with my neck since being rear ended in a car accident last August. Gotta satisfy Journey's and my need for riding puttering around the road, barn lot, lower fields, driveway. Oh, well. Still very, very blessed to be out there.

I should already be out there, but my new puppy didn't get to play hard enough yesterday evening when I was out to dinner with friends, and decided to wake up crying in his kennel about 4 times last night. The little scamp.

Great thread Country Woman, but I'm way too old to be a part of your group. Everyone seems to be in their 40's to early 50's. Is it ok if a late 50's person takes part? TBLoverl

Honey, I got my first horse at age 57 and I'm turning the big 6-oh! My next birthday. I'm older than dirt.

Horses keep us young.

Howdy, and welcome!

Red face TB Lover

Wonderful thread Country Woman, But is it ok for the 50's to 60's 2 join in? I'm soon to be 58 yrs. Young. Have had 2 Thoroughbreds in my lifetime with my husband at our "mini-farm" here in Georgia. My mare I had for 23 yrs she had to be euthanized in 2010 at 28 yrs. Of age. My gelding I had for 19 yrs. Who died 10 mo.s after my mare. I was DESTROYED!! My heart might have as well been ripped out. I NEVER thought I'd even think of having another equine friend especially due to my age. But - I volunteer at an Equine Rescue with our Ga. Dept. Of Agriculture & have now fallen in love with a pitiful, horendously neglected little mare. We have NO infor on her. No breed, no age, no health records - just her name. I'd love some feedback as to whether I'm insane or being fairly normal. I work full time 5 days a week, would not be keeping her here at our farm but just down the street with my trainer and farrier and hope to move to Fla. In the next few yrs. Unfortunately I cannot retire for another 6 yrs. Thanks for feedback. TB Lover

He torched it and we were in business...
There's just something about a DH on a tractor, fixing fence for the horses. Better than diamonds, wouldn't you say?

I told him he never looked sexier. He laughed at me, but it's true, his willingness to support me and his skill at fixing things are a turn on to this country girl!

Our TWH is named Diamond, when he bought him, he gave me a choice between the horse or a diamond.....easy choice. LOL
(and later bought me a diamond.)....he's a keeper for sure.

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

That's so funny, Susan - I've told other people that I don't have big diamonds and fancy jewelry - but my DH built my barn and fences and corrals with his own hands, exactly like I wanted (well, pretty much, anyway ) which says way more than writing a check to a jewelry store. And, when my sheep 'ate' my teeny shiny diamond out of my engagement ring this past fall, he took me for an upgrade diamond, so mine is like yours - a keeper for sure!
