Hey hey, my family and the SO's family are still staying in TX, and I'm only going because the military says I have to. That gets me some points back, right? ;) LOL!

Sharpie, you're good in my book and a few others I'm sure! What branch of the military and why TN?

Army and Fort Campbell- I'm heading over to join the 72nd under the Screaming Eagles 86th CSH (deployable Army hospital), bound out for Afghanistan next summer if plans don't change.

EMS, any tips or thoughts on TN to share with me? Where are you leaving from and going to? (Don't have to be too specific if you don't want)

I have been out there and checked out the stable on base, where I plan on keeping my boy. I think he's going to think he's died and gone to heaven!

There is so much GREEN in TN! Even the 'turn-outs' for the stalled horses are gorgeous and there's grass. The actual pastures are even nicer! My guy has only seen grass for 9 weeks in the 2 years I've had him with the drought in south TX going into year three. And they say there is 75 miles of trail that's ride-able from the barn. AND (as if that wasn't enough) there's the land between the lakes rec/nature area within an easy haul, which is probably thousands of miles of trail.

Now, I'm a little scared to try any of the 'mexican' restaraunts here and worry that I may not see a decent tortilla or brisket until I get back to TX...

That horse was **** -_- pardon my french. He jumped 3'3" without issue then we raised it to 3'6" and he hit it the first time, so we came around again and he refused 3 strides out!!! So I kcked and slapped him then we tried again, he refused 3 steps out! So we LOWERED it to 3'3" again and he stopped out again twice!!!! So we lowered to 3'0" and he stopped out 4 strides out twice!!! So at that point me and my trainer know he's **** for cash and washed him then quickly gave him back to the owner.
