    My two older boys are ready for this reason to stop. I bring them in to a stall to eat their grain and they don't want to go back out! I don't blame them, I'd want to stay where it was dry too

    Me too - cleaning poop out of stalls is like finding Zen.

    So, of course now that I left it snows at my parents place The weather lady just said "Just to remind you it's still winter in Texas..." Yes, here you need reminders

    Haven't had to muck lately (pasture board). Don't mind it too much, though had a scary experience once.

    Well I hope it doesn't snow the third week of February - I just placed my chick order with McMurray Hatchery. Don't want to be driving thru the snow at 3 am to the post office to pick up my chicks!

    Tired of coldness here - I'm ready to get outside and get to work. Besides my usual gardening addiction (and goats and chickens), there are some new endurance rides this year and I'd really love to try to make some of the ones closer to me.

    Anyone got any riding/training goals for this year?

    I would love to do some sorting this year. Got 3 capable horses for it but we don't know much about how to do it. It seems fairly easy but you never know!

    Hey guys! Hows everyone? Hope yall are warm and dry.

    The week after Christmas we went down to Waller/ Navasota to see my family and we stayed with my uncle. He took us over to his old house where he keeps his horses and cows. When we got there all the kids wanted to take alittle ride so we grabbed some halters and threw the kids up. My son who's 5 has never rode a pony before so he was excited to ride my little cousins pony, Charlie. He was enjoying it and mentioned how it feels different than a " real" horse. We all are talking and happen to turn around right as Caiden falls off of Charlie or more like slides off. He hit the ground on his belly so he began to cry a bit. As everyone gets closer he gets louder. He stands up and in med cry he stops, looks over at the pony and in the meanest voice he can conjure up says "STUPID PONY!!" Lol We all about died laughing. He got back up and took a few more laps then asked if he can ride a real horse now. Lol what looked like happened was there was a dip which made him off balanced and he just slid off the side of Charlie. Poor Charlie got blamed!

    Aww, poor Charlie! I lead-lined the daughter of the folks who were looking after the horse in the stall next to mine and walked her a few laps around the arena on my guy. She'd done pony party rides before, but this was the first time she'd been on a 'real horse.' Not sure what does it, but kids definitely have a clear idea of ponies vs horses in their heads! I though her cheeks were going to split in two from all the grinning. Made me smile. My guy was a little perplexed since he thought he was done for the day, but seemed to enjoy it once he realized that the entire gig really was just walking after me and he didn't have to do any 'work.'
