As far as I know, 29th is ok with me. Is there any place at lake Texoma to ride horses? That would be a great place to meet, eat/ride, etc. Or the Grasslands, outside of Decatur. You just tell me where, I'll be there. And bring something yummy to eat! Unfortunately, that's my favorite thing, eating! lol

Texoma is a three-hour drive for me so I would want to stay the night if we go there.
I don't think anyone has mentioned Ray Roberts. I haven't been there but they do have trails.

thanks kctop for taking the pictures.
Everyone while she was in the pasture with the foals she never stopped smiling.
Her husband , a friend, and I commented on it.
Magic is the colts name it seems thanks to kctop.
She once again used her superpowers to bring you pictures of my foals and Krystal my favorite horse.
Anyone is welcome to drop by and see the foals and just talk. Let me kn ow when you are coming and I will see if it can happen. Just PM me.
We do have the trails at Lake Lavon and other places.
So we need to decide if we are going to try and do this locally or haul horses somewhere else.
Any suggestions? We will be pretty hot by then. So we might want to keep it local if the horses are involved and do it in the late afternoon with a BBQ afterward or a night trail ride. Shalom

I guess I'll answer this now that I'm on a real computer. Too hard to type on the tablet.

I was catching some hens to take to a friend, so early in the morning, I took my cage and stepped into the coop, shutting the door behind me.

I have two slide locks on the door, one at the top and one at the bottom, then I have a piece of wood screwed into the coop that I can turn to keep the door from being opened even in the slide locks aren't in place.

When I shut the coop door behind me, the little piece of wood moved just enough that the door wouldn't open. When I jiggled the door, it just got worse.

Fortunately, the door is an old screen door that we put hardware cloth over .. AND there was an old feeder still hanging in the coop. I disassembled the feeder, used the wire handle to stick through the holes in the hardware cloth, pushed the piece wood out of the way, and pushed the door open.

I McGyvered my way out!

THAT, my friends, is what separates us from the animals!

TG, that's a very interesting story and you did a great job of McGuyvering your way out of it!!!!

Yes, I'm sure I was ginning ear to ear when in the passture with the babies:)))) What can I say, I was in heaven. I would sit there all day if I could. The little bay filly was so curious and was thinking about comining up to me, even took a step or 2, but then I had to move and that was that.

As for the meet and greet, I have no idea where would be the best place. There is nothing really centrally located for everyone who wants to attend. It's going to be closer for some regardless of where we meet. We just need to make a decision. Here's a link to the state parks that allow horses with trails. Lavon is not listed as their trails are not considered a state park.

Here's the link for Lavon.

DBA, Have you found your phone yet?

Gorgeous foals! Yay for rescuing that little filly, poor thing. I know I wouldn't have been nearly as polite or gracious after having food dumped on me. 29th will be warm - I'm okay with just a human meet & greet if it's easier. If we opt for horses, I'm happy to come help you load up, DB.

Ground drove Cash for the first time yesterday - walk, trot, back, over ground poles, and around the 2 obnoxious ponies who happened to be turned out in that particular arena. He did great, so proud of him. My other half brought our psycho puppy to see if our at-home training would carry over, and he was so much better! He even got to play (while leashed) with some of the farm dogs and didn't try to kill them - major win! Plus, 70 and sunny is my idea of PERFECT weather.

My goodness yall are still planning that meet up? cool beans :) hahaha i... am... exhausted... hahaha got back at 8 last night from the show. Romeo was a dream. Im very pleased, and so is my trainer, with how far ive brought him and how great our relationship has become. Our ribbon total ended up as 7 firsts, 1 second, 1 third, 1 regular fourth 1 classic fourth, and 1 regular sixth and one classic sixth. Sadly.... This is the last show i will ever compete on him... Unless the people want me to ride him in another show, off the lease. His lease ends in 3 weeks.... i dont want my baby to go!!!

So, the horse hunt isn't going well, TBJ? Aside from the one you intensely disliked at that show, have you tried many others?

Not sure if it's helpful or not, but I'm on two Facebook groups which focus on hunters, jumpers & dressage horses in Texas. Always some gorgeous horse listed, usually with videos or videos upon request. Anywhere from $2k-$50k price tags.
