    OK guys, my heart is breaking. The property where I board is officially up for sale on an international market (Sotheby's realtor sign up this morning). The owner had it up on the market with a friend realtor for several months "just to see what happens". When I'm riding in the arena in the evenings lately, people come by and ask questions about the property, make comments, ask me who I am and if I am "exercising the horses".
    The trainer and the guys he works with have been my horse family for several years now and we have been through some things here in the horse world. I am so very sad There are just a few boarders, but one of them I am close to, and he as well as the trainer and the other guys who work with him will all be moving elsewhere.
    So I am looking for a new place to board. Sigh. I have the pros and cons lists going, and I am frustrated that boarding barns all want to do full care and stall horses "with turnout".
    Here's the property if anyone is interested... overpriced

    4500 Anglin Cir, Fort Worth, TX 76140 - Zillow

    ONA .. how do you know you'll have to move? New owners may continue to offer board, right?

    I feel like I've had to have "plan B" for a couple of months now. It isn't certain that they won't take boarders, I don't know.

    Doesn't hurt to do your research now, ONA, but I'll keep my fingers crossed you don't have to move to a new boarding facility. I'm envious of the covered arena!
    Nu, the trail pics are lovely. Lil looks great.
    CC, feel free to bring a pecan pie to the meetup, lol.
    Mtn, after growing up on a small scale blueberry farm, I can't stand to eat them! Too many years of blueberry overkill in the kitchen.

    I'm LOVING the cooler weather last night & this morning.

    On a more positive note, here is a pic of my colt after grooming yesterday looking all purty. He was two in February. My trainer will start him next summer.
    Every once in a while I lead him out to walk the pasture, and so I decided to do that yesterday morning, forgetting until we got out there that they haven't cut hay yet. So it was uh, challenging for a few minutes as he was trying to snatch grass, but then he settled down and was a good boy as usual

    C25 - understand that for sure! Too much of a good thing. But we love 'em here and mom sure likes taking the muffins back to the nursing home and sharing with her friends there. And she likes to pick, even if for only a few minutes. She has so few needs now and little things like a ride to the farm sometimes don't remain in her mind for long, but just getting out does her so much good. I had a garden once and all that grew were acorn squash and green beans because of the weather where we were living. I canned and canned and canned when everything ripened and swore I would NEVER again eat squash or green beans. Took several years to even look at them in the store. But age and digestion have won and can now eat them - but rarely. Sigh.

    He's a beautiful color, ONA! Love how his hind leg is cocked just enough for us to see his dorsal stripe.

    Well, he IS photogenic ... even if he was so freaked out over something in the woods on Saturday that it took him until 1pm to EAT HIS BREAKFAST ...
