Sorry posting so much in a row -

What would Option #1 look like but with wording "Texas Horse Friends" under the logo (nothing on the back)?

I think other people who visit the forum and recognize the logo will be extremely jealous and wonder why we are so special that we get our own shirts.

Just got home from an auction. I know, I shouldn't but I went because my friend asked me to go:) She is my best friend in the world and I'm not just saying that because she bought a beautiful headstall and breast collar then turned around and gave it to me! I am truly blessed to have her in mt life:)

Can't wait for our meet and greet:) As for our shirts, I'd like it to have Texas Horse Friends and Horse Forum on it somewhere. The logo looks awesome on the black shirt:).

Speaking of pictures, I have a friend that wants to come and take pics of those babies dba. She takes much better pics than I do and has a much better camera?

LOL - well luck was with me last night and I didn't have to lose any sleep over these silly birds. I figured I was going to be up all night checking on the stuck chick - it was wrapped in wet paper towel, still stuck in most of it's membrane (that kept drying out and holding him in too much) and under the 60 watt bulb (the 250 was too hot for one bird). Plus, I had all this set up on my stainless steel sink counter so it can be sterilized. I ended up just peeling away most of the membrane that didn't have blood in it and left the bottom part sort of cupping his bum because if you peeked in there, he was still absorbing all of that stuff.

By 10 pm, he was inchworming around in the papertowel and by 10:30, his little umbilicus had shrunk to a tiny thread and I just held onto it while he squirmed and it broke by itself. I scooped him up, showed him to mama chicken who promptly shoved him under her body and then I went to bed.

This morning the hen was still in the box (I'm so glad she didn't decide to rearrange the furniture or raid the fridge) with 8 peeps (she's still on 4 eggs, too) and the little chick from the night before is yellow and fuzzy with two black spots on its back - happy and healthy as ever.

This is too much work. The kids keep hand feeding this hen from their dinner plates and she has made herself at home. She is so friendly b/c we (I mean THEY) are constantly petting her and playing with her babies. I can't believe I have chickens in my kitchen. It is all so crazy!

Awww, glad the little guy made it, CC! I've never had LIVE chickens in my kitchen...

I'm waiting on shirt quotes from 3 companies, which I'll share with DB. I sent 3 of our preliminary options to see how the pricing would differ with the number of colors and to see if they have recommendations on what colors/styles might result in the best final product. I like the running Texas flag horse and really love the sharpness of the brightly colored HF logo on the black shirt. I also prefer Texas Friends or Texas Horse Friends over Texas Member(s.)

too funny cc.

I hatched chickens in an apartment while our house was being built. Put 27 eggs in an incubator thinking I might get 10 to hatch. 24 hatched! it was a riot.

We set them up in DD13s closet .. I brought a new box home from work every day and we changed the box daily and snuck the old one to the dumpster after dark every night..

When they were about 3 weeks old, I took them to the property where the house was being built and set them up in a coop/pen.

Fun times.
