    Hisangelonly, hey here we are again! Me no truck, you no trailer. Which side of I35 are you on? If you are on the east side, maybe I'll just ride my mare over to your place sometime :) Well, not really because I don't trust some drivers around here.
    I never have anyone to ride with because where I board they work cutting horses and there isn't really any leisure riding time for those guys. We are on a nice property with covered arena and some nice pasture to ride in, but only about 4 acres. The trainer at my old place, same area, found this place and moved along with his horses as well as another man who owns my mare's herd, so I am moving with them. They are my horse family.
    Anyway, how about you come over here sometime and you can ride my mare and I'll ask my trainer if I can ride one of the cutting mares? That is if you ride western. Then you won't be bored anymore and will have someone to ride with :)

    Checking back in, glad to see new Texans! As for Oklahoma, well, not my favorite state either, but I must say I have done some awesome hiking/backpacking/camping in the southeastern part of the state, Ouachita Mountains. And there are the Ouachita and Ozarks in Arkansas. Will be traveling to the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico for a pack trip this coming November, too, that is if it doesn't all burn down as it has been on fire for about a month now.
    We got rain here in Tarrant County early this morning around 5 a.m., about 1/2 an inch. Earlier this week it was cool (70-80 degrees) and overcast for a couple of days. Nice.
    And just have to say that the way I handle the heat is to stay out of AC as much as possible. I keep my house thermostat on 78 and am outside a lot. I work a part-time medical job when not teaching and freeze my tail off when there at the hospital! I would much rather be too warm than cold!
    These days I'm loving not having to work everyday and can be my sweaty, dusty self and not have to style my hair :))

    One of my trail riding friends, posted on Facebook, her horse, trailer and all her tack was stollen. She stated that she heard that the thief was headed to Conroe or Humbolt. Thought I'd pass it along to you Texas peeps. She has pics of the horse and trailer on the FB page. I added the photos on the "stolen horses" thread on FH.

    And EVERY OTHER PERSON at that party glared at me with naked revulsion in their eyes, so I said "What?" and that's when I found out that they have that saying in Wisconsin BUT - I swear it - that "rode hard/put away wet" isn't about poorly treating your HORSES...it's about...ugh....WOMEN. Then it was *my* turn to be all revolted, because I'm thinking "what kind of people even HAVE a saying like that?"

    I feel like I've been exiled to live among savages for the last decade...
    Sweetheart, even in Texas that is exactly what that means.

    So, I am out here in the Seguin, McQueeney area and am in desperate need of a new farrier. My old farrier, who is actually a young kid, but a good farrier, who has been through school for it and still apprentices with more experienced farriers...has disappeared. He is usually pretty reliable but totally flaked today. Can't even reach him on the phone. Hope he is ok! BUT, I put off having the horses trimmed (they are both barefoot), for a couple of weeks after my husband's truck broke down and cost an arm and a leg to fix...and now my gelding, especially, REALLY needs a trim...quick. Anyone know a reliable, good but not too expensive farrier in the nearby area who could come out soon??
