Thanks, cc. DH didn't kill me when I told him about the truck .. but he hasn't seen it yet .. eeeeeek!

I'll have as much fun as I can while taking care of my mother in the beginning stages of dementia, and my dad who just had a total knee replacement.

It helps to have a sense of humour in my family .. and we do:

Well Happy Friday my Texas Horse Friends!!!!

Ok, off horse topic but it's Homecoming for my Senior and we've been making mums all week...She is all excited about their game tonight then a dance:) I remember my high school homecomings, there were different but I went to a 5A school and my kids are in a 3A. Definitely some pros and cons there but happy where they are. Last week, we played a school in Ft. Worth and my son wigged out when he had to go thru a metal detector to get into the stadium (not to mention put his pocket knife back in the truck)!

Good afternoon yall!

Since I am horseless I don't get the pleasure of seeing frisky horses playing in the early morning anymore BUT today I got a real treat. My boys, dogs and myself go out every morning and sit on the porch which faces a small horse ranch that's across the street. Well this morning 3 of the horses were going crazy running and kicking. They were throwing their heads about while running in circles. It was so cute and rather peacful to watch. My dog Riley sat there the whole time all perked up. Great way to start the day....well until my boys began to fight over who got the ride the bike lol

Well I've been outside all day cutting down trees and harvesting the wood (while slow cooking a pot of charro beans on the stove at the same time -YUM!) and that cool front (not really cold) blew in - how nice! Tomorrow I might even have to put on a jacket when I go out for round two.

Green Broke
Hello to my fellow Texas buddies, it's been a while since I have posted here! I have a situation I am wondering if any of you might be able to help me with...

Due to work and time constraints, I'm looking to re-home my beautiful TB mare. It looks like I will be working O/S for some time next year, and I'm pushed to the max for time at the moment, I'm just not doing her justice any more.

She's about 16hh, 9 years old, papered, sweet temperament, can be nervous in new environments but couldn't throw a buck to save herself. When she does play up, she mostly does a jig on the spot/sideways. Calms with calm riding.

All I want for her is a good home. If it is someone I am familiar with, or can provide good references, she's yours if you want her. Alternatively, if you know of someone that wants a nice TB mare and you can vouch that it would be a good home, let me know. I'm not in a rush, I don't have specific deadline, I just want to know that she can find a home that will love her as much as I do.

PM me for details, we're located in Austin. Here's a few pics, and some threads I have started about her in the past:

Beginnings in 2010:
Bobbie my OTTB - Before and after (finally)!

Preparing for first dressage show:
Progress with Bobbie my OTTB

Realising I want to keep her:
The story of how a project horse became a personal horse...

So, let me know your thoughts. She's UTD on shots, worming, coggins and is not shod. Sound barefoot for light work and soft trails.

Loves trails, did I mention that? As long as she's leading

I wish I could take her, but my mom would kill me ):

So I've been told it's getting a bit chilly in north Texas...
Lily is already acting a fool. Just ordered her a pink blankie for the cold nights :)
