Thanks for the nice welcome! And hello and welcome to Foreverhome, and welcome to the Midwest, Michigan is a great state, I love the Midwest!

Yes, I have really seriously thought of getting a gaited horse. Before my back and health issues got worse I had bought a nice blue roan Fox Trotter yearling colt, I was over the moon and loved that colt so much. Unfortunately the job loss, due to my health issues, forced me to return him to his previous owners/breeders, I was just crushed. Would dearly love to find another gaited horse like him, only now I need an older trained horse.

Is everyone enjoying this beautiful fall weather? It's been in the 70's here, sunny, and the leaves are changing colors, best time of year!

Welcome, Forever. I moved from CA to AZ-I did the trailering myself & we set up the corrals as soon as we got here-what a job that was!

Midwest & Ponies

Thanks everyone. I am originally from Indiana, so the Midwest is home. The Hoosier state is a bit too humid for my taste, but I am loving Michigan!

BTW Hunter, your evil ponies tagline is hilarious. Our pinto pony, Ishi, is my primary ride. I've always been a sucker for ponies -- so much personality in a small package. Ishi is very Zen. I don't think I would be surprised if he just started talking to me one day, he just looks so thoughtful all the time...

New here, from OKlahoma, 60 y/o and have 10 horses. I think it is an addiction.
I ride Peruvians but I have one Paso fino and a mule. I have ridden and owned many other breeds but Peruvians are my favorite.
I'm happy to hear from any other Okies.

Welcome to our new members! You'll enjoy this thread; there are some great people on here!

Critter, I just heard about Underwood's in the past week. Gotta say that the crusty white stuff from the baking soda (?) really made me wonder what was going on! But, the results seem to be fantastic! Your results are looking great, too!

Gaited, 10 horses definitely puts you in the crazy-horse-lady category, I think. Having 6 (no, wait, 5 1/2 as the pony isn't full size) makes me qualify, too. But, I wouldn't have it any other way!

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wiped a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee. What's the matter, dear?", she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?". The husband looks up from his coffee, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly.

The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring sensitive. "Yes, I do" she replies. The husband paused. The words were not coming easily. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?" "Yes, I remember" said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continued. "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?" "I remember that too" she replied softly. He wiped another tear from his cheek and said......"I would have gotten out today."

I know go back into the corner

Love is, forgiving the man who was brave enough to posted this ditty
