Lol cool dba. Well we had a great day today. It was gorgeous out. Rode Jett instead of my boy today and started working on learning to rope. Rags got bit by someone in his pasture just right of his withers so I didn't want to risk my saddle rubbing it. The day Seabrook great though.

Horse people are great! Called a former co-worker .. he offered to bring Gunner home today after church. He also offered up panels for a proper pen, a water trough, and a combo feeder/hayrack. He's going to help us breakdown the pen, bring it over, help us set it up, go get the horse and bring him back over here.

What a relief. Now to get my mare from 50 miles away up to the pasture with badger ........ another day.

Gunner is being soooo good about his eye. We medicated 3 times yesterday (10 miles away in a pasture). He was catchable, polite, cooperative ..... He should be fun to have around the house!

Texasgal you are always welcome to borrow one of our stock trailers.
Now the sides are decorated with "organic" matter from hauling cattle so you need not worry about cleaning it out..
Glad gunner is doing well. Shalom

DBA, I thought of you yesterday. (no, not that way, sorry). Lol
I was on my way to Las Colinas, to the Zest Fest, and passed a place that has been there for as long as I can remember, just East of Wichita Falls, that had a sign for years that said "Arabians" I can't remember the name of the "ranch", and the sign is too faded now. That doesn't happen to be your place that you still have in Wichita is it? Just curious.

BTW.....Zestfest, and tasting spicy foods.... not a good idea the day after getting over a stomach virus... just sayin'!

No nusiance that is not my property but I do know the sign.
I only had a few mares there in Wichita most were near Paris because of space and lack of time. Raising 2 daughters and trying to make enough to keep them the horses and myself in relative comfort.
I did think of moving there while the house is renovated and repaired.
Its just too far from everything and I have really great tenats that take care of the place like their own.
Nope going t be near KCTOP for a while. The area is more arabian friendly and I can still volunteer here in Paris a couple of days a week and still keep a few of my long term clients. Shalom

Kay, he is 17 and single I think, he's very quiet about potential girlfriends! I think the minute we find out about they're done:( Not sure what that's about but I think dad gives him a hard time. He was very excited yesterday doing his last lift. He lifted 335 poumds and when he got it, he was so excited he almost dropped it!

I never understood the negativity towards Arabs. I grew up in S. Calif. We had arabs there, and only one QH! Moved to Texas, slowly changed out Arabs for QH's. I miss the Arab spirit! My QH mare is "crazy" I guess that's why I like her, makes me think of my Arabs! Just waiting to see what happens next. Lol We use to do competative trailriding with NATRC. Back in my younger skinny days! Lol

We may have to do something to reignite the Arab interest in you nuisance.
Then again that TB mare should prove to have enough spirit to do the job.
Even Texasgal has an Arab a nice one too. Shalom

Gunner is home. It was a long day. Church (where they used a reining horse to help with the message) .. then lunch ... then breaking down the pen at friends ... loading it into trailer ... delivering to our house .. unloading and setting up ... back on the road to the pasture ... catch and load Gunner (loaded like a pro) .... back on the road to the house ... unload and settle in the pen ... sit on tailgate drinking a beer .. staring at horse ....

Wow. We finally have a horse on the property....
