My dad has a 4 horse stock trailer, that's older than I am. PURE STEEL! Heavy SOB! Used it for years. Found a cheap 2 horse, $500!!! Good floor, needs a little metal work, which my DH can do. I just ordered a new window, butt chains for it, got the rubber matts yesterday. Can't wait for this summer, when DH has more time to go ahead and fix the few areas that need fixed.
DbArabians, we're not too far from Farmersville (Acey is in Blue Ridge), but we use BJ (Lone Star Farrier). He's a good kid and does a decent job on the horses at the two barns we go to. If he won't come out, he might be able to refer someone. (214) 649-1561 Posted via Mobile Device
Nice rain here today, we probably got about an inch or so, all in a downpour at once, and a little hail. Of course, I was on the road, hopefully didn't get any dings from the hail!
Still truck shopping... I think I found "the one", will know tomorrow after my mechanic checks it out.
Thanks for the equestrian trails info, CClop! I feel certain that several of us will eventually run into each other somewhere, on the trail or otherwise! Reminds me, I think I just missed TG Saturday morning. I don't want to cause undue alarm, but it is for the good of all... I was driving a really ugly truck, had decided that it was just not for me, considering how it shifted gears, when I had to dodge a dead rooster on the road. She must have seen me coming and took off before she could relish her prey. I had no idea that she had that large a territory for her hunts! Don't remember exactly where she lives, but I know that it must be at least 100 miles away. Beware.
Nuisance, I have an old steel trailer, too. Using it for storage now, and soon for weekends at the lake/grasslands. A 2-horse straightload with living quarters! Got it for nothing, had wheel bearings & brakes done, a couple of years ago. Soon hopefully will have the truck to haul it. Will soon be getting something smaller to haul to the lake/trails nearby.
Just once .. ONCE ... when I'm feeling discouraged, or a little unsure about something ... and I'm stupid enough to actually EXPRESS myself ... just ONCE ... would it be possible that DH just give me a big hug, remind me that I'm a child of the Most High God, that we believe and stand on His promises, have faith, and maybe even a "everything is going to be fine" ....
Nooooooooooooooooooooo ... it sends HIM spiraling into doubt and fear and hysteria .. straight to the WORST possible scenerio .. and I spend what little energy I can muster trying to backtrack and assure HIM that everything is going to be ok ..
I know I draw my strength from the Lord, but sometimes I really just need to have a flesh and blood human being hold me and tell me it's ok .. really.
Well allow me to assure you that you are indeed a child of the Most High who is your everything. He holds you in his hands and knows the number of hairs on your head.
His will is that you don't worry about anything as all things are in his hands. Be his anointed child and concern yourself only with his will and all other things will always fall into place for you.
Allow his grace to comfort you in your worry and let his Holy Spirit assure you that all will be well.
Worrying will never ever help a situation. The only thing it can actually serve is to harm a situation worse. Live in the knowledge that you are precious and are destined for paradise.
