    Kudos for taking in a rescue, Nu! I've seen far too many race horses beat into trailers with brooms, because the trainers/owners only cared about conditioning to run.

    When I've been in your shoes, I'd take a break from even looking at a trailer. I'd focus on perfecting our leading/following on loose lead every where I could possibly go - up & down hills, left & right, serpentining like a drunken sailer, walking over bridges/plywood/poles/empty feed bags/floor mats, walking in and out of the barn. A few weeks later, I'd walk purposely into the trailer expecting my horse to follow as they've done every where else. No guarantees, but at least they've had a break from the "work" and/or anxiety of being asked to go into a trailer regularly and they are more likely to follow me in.

    So, do y'all ride just for fun or to make a living?

    I saw a bunny picture and mention of dogs - any other fun pets? I recently rescued a catahoula puppy from a local shelter.

    Ok, I finally checked the weather for DFW and mother nature is at it agin. Just when we thought spring was here, surprise, surprise, surprise.....



    C25, We just ride ours for fun, not to make a living, cause I'd be broke with no horses:) I would like to start sorting on my mare but nothing serious.

    :) Yeah most definitely. We are looking to go back to Weatherford which is 20 miles south of Springtown. I went to high school here then moved out to Weatherford for a few years with my husband and kids then we came back cause it was the closest town to where he was working without being in BFE. You said your sister is here so Im guessing yall have visited Springtown before?
