ok TA, got me started. Went to an auction tonight just to see what's going on and OMG, I was appauled at some of the things I saw. Although there were several I really wanted to bring home but couldn't. Almost had hubby talked into one but no go. These babies went for less than $50. The little 4mo pally with partial blue eyes was gorgeous. I so wanted to put her in the back of the truck and bring her home. It just broke my heart to see some of them.

Isn't that true, KC. I stay away from auctions for that reason .

Little kitty, Allie, dug in to her meal with both front paws this morning and licked herself after she finished eating. Still no poopy.
Oh, by the way, since this IS a horse forum, my mare and colt are doing great...

Welcome to Texas, you can be a Texan Wannabee, until you find out, I'm assuming that's ok, but you know what happens when you assume!
Great drawing, the only thing I can draw is FLIES! ***drum roll please*** badabing!
My sister lives in North Richland Hills, DFW area, but she doesn't have horses, so I doubt she knows, but I'll ask her, she may have a friend who boards.
Good luck,
lol I know the weather will take some getting used to. It's a bummer too because I just finished knitting a super cute hat for winter. I have a feeling I won't be needing it if I move out there.

I was actually looking at Cedar Hill. I saw a place out there that looked like it may work. They charge 350 for pasture board and are just a couple miles away from several apartment complexes.

It's crazy, 350 would get me full care stall board at most of the places around here! I guess it shouldn't surprise me though; rent is also quite a bit more out there.

It all depends on the place. I've seen other places that are a lot cheaper but I don't know the conditions either. I've seen ads on.Craig's list and equinenow.com. I'm sure there are more out there but may not be well known.

Yeah that's true. I might have to do a little more digging. I'm sure there are at least a few more that just don't have a website up. That's part of the reason I wanted to ask around here. Some of the best places you only get to hear about through word of mouth.

That is absolutely true. I love our barn and it does not have a website and the boarders have come in by word of mouth but we're in far NE Dallas.

Woot! Just found one that's 250 for pasture board! That's much better and the barn even looks nicer than the more expensive one... Cedar Hill is looking like a winner so far: less than 30 minutes from work and at least a few options for boarding. If any of you guys know about decent places to board (or rent even lol) in that area please pm me the details.
