My area is calling for scattered and isolated thunderstorms until Sunday again. That's as far as the forecast goes.

I never thought I'd say it, but I am really wishing for a break in the rain! I have stuff I want to do, and not even going to try it in all the mud and torrential downpour.

Thankfully, my land slopes to the back, so we have good drainage. Pond is back up to full height!

I am not going to complain at all about the rain. I know we need it and we can't afford another year of buying hay at 13 per bale.... getting ready to start stocking up now why all the fields are nice, pretty and green!

Near or in Kennedale right? I love that area and would love to go live that way. Fieldstone Park is down there, Horseshoe Ranch, Deer Creek Ranch...all great stables in very reasonable driving distance. Do you have your own land? I am N of I-30 and board near Benbrook and I20. I will be working S of I20 starting in August and it depends on hubby too but I would like to relocate south!

No rain today but I don't even have a saddle to clean *cries*

Here is a question for the Texas folks... how good is a stock tank for horses? I know its pretty much the norm for here to see them in pastures but how many actually use them versus a water trough with fresh water?

Our pasture has both and I have to say I think the horses prefer the fresh water. They are up at least twice a day and the trough has to be filled daily but then again, there are 10 to 13 horses drinking out of it...

So the last time "I" hauled a horse I was oh...about 12 years old. Got out of it for a long while and now I'm back and just bought a trailer...and I'm terrified to haul my baby! The fear is normal, right??? I can just picture myself cruising down the highway doing about 40mph with my flashers on.

Like riding a bike... you will do fine! Just remember slow starts and stops and easy turns.
