Hey, y'all that feed in pastures. Go to your local dump and get tires. You can feed one of the tubs inside a tire and they cannot paw it out or turn it over. I've been using it for years. Had one gelding that would literally pick his tub up and throw it at you for feed... Siliconed it into a tire and now he can't pick it up. You can do the same thing for hay. Put your flakes inside the ring of the tire and they can't walk on it or on top of it to pee.

Green Broke
Good idea, Tiny. I feed in stalls though, with hookover feed buckets. I think he's just so excited to eat, and pretty new at it too haha. He was just as aggressive feeding off of mama.

My horses will hit the buckets with their noses, like a foal will their mothers udder, and end up spilling their food everywhere, then, eat it off the ground. I have the buckets that hook over the fence.

Brouht my new loaner HORSE home today. Took about 30 min. To get her in the trailer. Took her to the vet, got her shots and coggins drawn. Loaded right up there, thank goodness. She just hasn't been worked with in a long time. Brought her home, introduced her to my girls. Of course Pumpkin (new horse) is in season, so they're all being silly. Pumpkin is a 6 yr old Saddlebred, her registered name is Sewing Kit. Can't wait to ride tomorrow! Going to ride around here, then Sunday, My friends and I are going to the river (red) to ride. Our friend has 1000+ acres there Pumpkins feet are long, so won't ride her alot tomorrow, just work her to remind her who's boss. Feet will be trimmed Sunday before we ride. Husband of friend is a farrier!

Dust storm blew in about 6:30. I think half of Oklahoma's red dirt came thru.

TA ... we've just begun the planning ... I think we have decided on Seahorse Haven as our meet place .. some may be staying overnite ... no date set .. Nov something? ... that's about it!

So what kind of horses are you all going to bring? I was going to try to match personalities - if most are bringing greenies, I might bring my dead-head or maybe not! LOL! I'm trying to figure out which one to get into shape - my MOST FUN HORSE is well-broke but isn't a group trail-ride type - he is too alpha and a bit hyper... but will lead a pack through fire and is solid. If everyone brings greenies, I'll bring him - he'll make a good leader horse...if we have plenty of good leader horses, I'll bring a more sane mount to ride. LOL!

So now to figure out which one to put some miles on...

Well, ours are barely broke ... and DH decided to try to go loping off in the pasture today and got bucked off ... It was pretty spectacular .. *rolls eyes*

Everyone is ok ... and he did get back on and ride .. It's def given me some resolve to work that little 3 yr old regularly between now and then!

They are -normally- pretty laid back QHs....

Just in case I do make that 5 arduous jouney just to be able to place a face with the avatars are stallions allowed?
My boy is well behaved but I do allow him to talk and announce his presence. I can walk him between mares and he will prance but he knows better thna to approach one.
Besides if texasgal goes someone has to watch the chickens and goats.
Anyone heard from out little buddy Country boy?
Hope everyone is fine keep me abreast of the plans. Shalom
    09-09-2012, 01:26 AM
Well hopeful Country boy's absence is due to his priorities towards academics and not addicts (like us and this place) LOL

I don't think it would be a problem for stallions - would you like me to ask her if she has any special rules? I know she has boarders and has her own horses on the place....just remember she doesn't care much for dogs...

It would be fun to get everyone together - it will be a bit of a trip for those who are farther out....I'm always looking for a way to get out of College Station on game weekends - today was the first game since they joined the SEC and it was downright crazy.

And the airplanes with the banners flying overhead - what a waste of gas just to advertise apartment complexes in the area! 2-3 at a time and you couldn't even really read the banners - I could go to a year's worth of endurance rides on that gas. The overflow RV parking was insane so they let them fill up all around the GB library.

I am not a football fan so I don't 'feel' the hype that goes with Aggie football....but then 'pedestrians (non horse people)' often say the same about my horse addiction. To each their own.

Ok, y'all have peaked my interest. I haven't had the time to read all 183 pages. Lol. Can someone catch me up on the ride? Where is seahorse haven? Y'all planning just a day ride or weekend?
