Good manners dictate that you never ask anyone where they are from.
If theya re from Texas they will tell you. If not its just rude to embarrass them. Shalom

We had a guy from France living with our neighbors (intern study at TAMU) for a few weeks. It was so much fun visiting with him - he was fascinated by the fact that trucks out numbered cars. Cowboy hats were a new thing and he loved it here. We let him drive our dually a couple of times, and some of our large equipment around the house (never on the road - hahah). I've never seen anyone so fascinated.

He told us later he assumed we must be very popular since we had so many friends - he was referring to the fact that people wave at each other when passing on the roads. We explained that it was the 'norm' here. He was also quite interested in the women who jogged around the neighborhoods in nothing but bike shorts and sports bras - apparently women in France do not bare it all - all of the time like I thought. haha!

We had a great time discussing things with him (different cultural perspectives) while we were getting the 'bugs' ready to eat - he was actually quite horrified at the thought of eating 'bugs' and even more so when he saw them go into the steampot still squirming. He probably put away 3 lbs of it so I don't think he hated it.

This was his first visit ever to the states, and he only came straight here to TX. So sad to say how disappointed he will be if he comes back and goes anywhere else....he would have to lower his expectations...

How did he feel about the presence of guns? Not to mention all the stores that open almost 24h?

I've been places where if you say you are American there may not always be a positive reaction so I learned to say that I am from Texas and people are fascinated!

He had never held a gun before. They scared him to death and he thought that we were all too casual with handling them - we should be wearing bullet proof vests and steel toed boots just to clean them at the kitchen table.

We were all in the truck and my hubby was looking for a receipt to return something so I started helping him pull stuff out of the console - old mail, dental floss, bag of quarters for the car wash, beer coozies, misc tools, an old trailer brake controller, gun, receipts at the bottom of course...LOL - you should have seen his face!

Speaking of consoles, give a women the biggest prada bag that exists and she still would never be able to fill it with stuff like a man can the console of his truck.

DBA. Do you know how to find out pedigree on an Arab? He's a gelding, rescue, just have a photo of his papers. Serenty Springs Arabians, Cold Springs, TX. His name is, SSA Kaseem born 5/1/07. He's not on allbreed pedigree. My friend may be getting him. And, just curious about his pedigree. His Sire and Dam are too blurry on the picture. The sorrell is him, and the paint is a 3 yr old "arab" suppose to be registerd also. Came from same place. Rescues. Before the Wise County Humane Society got them, they had never been touched. They have had alot of ground work since. They were adopted out, but the people who adopted them, are moving to Canada, so gave them back to rehome. If I didn't already have 3 horses and 2 on the way, I'd take the mare home...

No, don't think so. I saw them several months ago. He may be under 15. but she is taller. My friend who is trying to look them up. Googled the ranch/farm name, and his name and found this.

SSA KASEEM AHR*635174 01 May 2007 Gelding Chestnut DNA typed. Parentage verified
So, how do I look up his pedigree?

nuisance .. I would go to the Horse Breeds section and post a Pedigree lookup thread. Someone who is a AHA member may be able to look him up for you.
