Getting excited about the meetup .. We probably should exchange actual first names at some point, huh? And a way to get in touch so we can find each other.

We aren't riding the bikes. We are going to spend the night somewhere Saturday night and then find something to get into on Sunday. DH wants to go to the stockyards, but I'm sure we'll find something to get in to ...

Okay, so theres this farm, Barn Number 1. They are AMAZING show jumpers/hunters and win basically anything they step into. Theres only 2 riders, and both are grand prix. They are amazing. But anyways! They train horses and I've never ever seen a bad one come out of there. But theres this other barn, Barn Number 2 and they buy up like 30% of the horses they train, then they RUIN them, then they give them out to breeding centers cause they make the horses LAME!!!! GGGRRRRR!!! And there was a BEAUTIFUL gelding I saw at the last 2 shows from barn number 1. That other barn bought them! They have already trashed 2 Barn Number 1 horses so far this season, they are looking to give away a 3rd that they bought as a GRAND PRIX horse and it BARELY jumps around 1.10m now!!! Anyways, One of the horses, during the time I was there won the 1.20m class and the 1.20m classic. Well.... Barn 2 showed the gelding at the last show... And they showed him in LOW CHILD JUMPERS (1.00-1.05m) and he got 22nd, 8th, 18th, and in the classic he got 17th!!! HOW DO THEY MANAGE TO RUIN HORSES SO QUICKLY!!! THEY ARE EVIL AND SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN! 5 of their horses flipped over at the last show, and they drug the "hot" ones so their riders can control them!!! UGH!!!!!!!!!! and they will just keep buying up good horses and ruining them because all they care about is winning! They don't care about how their horses are! They gallop them on concrete after they ride because "its fun", they don't wrap their horses after they run their legs off and crash through jumps, they gallop all over the fking course, their trainer is a btch, and they have no respect for their horses in ANY way!!!! AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! Seeing That gelding bite the dust THAT quickly.... HOW DO THEY NOT SEE A PROBLEM IN DOING THIS TO HORSES!!?!?!??!!

TG, I'm so glad y'all are coming to the meet'n greet:)))

TBJ, I completely understand your frustration....

If anyone is looking for a big (17+hh) ottb, let me know. My cousin in East TX (Lake 'o The Pines) gave my number to a guy that has one he wants to find a good home for. Our friend was going to take him but we thought he was a QH (my cousin was wrong). He bought him when he was 8 and he is now 13 but hasn't been ridden in 2 yrs. We told him we'd ask around. He doesn't have any pictures and I'm not sure of papers (DH talked to him).

Again...be safe out there y'all, keep an eye on the weather!

TBJ, my young friend its ok to be frustrated and at your age most people are. A lot.
However, there is nothing you can do about the situation and worrying about those horses and their fate only makes you old before your time.
These tornadoes should be used as a reminder that life is not always easy to bear.
There is too much pain in the world to worry about things that are out of our control. We must find joy and peace in all that we encounter during our lives.
If not you might find your self paying a lot of money to someone in my profession. LOL Shalom
