    Thanks for the compliments on the horses. Flame is not going anywhere soon kiara so keep working on the husband.
    Glad everyone had a great time. I know I did.
    We do need to meet again so everyone who could not attend this time gets a chance to meet the rest of us.
    The DFW group in them meantime can get together we still have a few members to get to know in this area. Shalom

    I need to google KO and get their address, and add it on the list of places to go.
    I try to hit Pendrys and Penzey's both when in DFW area. LOVE Penzey's, they have open ones that you can smell/taste.

    Hey guys! So....guess what??!! I'm officially aTexas member now!!! After an exhausting 20 hour trip we arrived last night just before dark. We are so happy to be here finally!! I'm sad we missed getting to meet you guys...but maybe we can get together with some of you in the dfw area.

    The horses did so well on the trip. Pan got a bit dehydrated and lethargic, but I got some gatorade in him and moments later he was himself again and teying to poke his head out. They were all very happy to get out and explore the new place.

    Talk to you guys soon!!!

    Glad to see everyone had a great time. Wish I could have made the trip. There's nothing better than a good spice store unless it is a feed store with everything..... or flower shop/nursery. We are sadly lacking on all fronts compared to DFW. Took my nephew on a trail rdie as my son's mare is still loafing with the new baby. The couple riding with us was from Cedar Hill. Small world.

    QtrBell where are you at? You are welcome to come catch the next one down south with us....

    $250 saddle pads - they are probably hand made by natives during the secret Boar's Tooth ceremonial on Bali Ha'i. For western, I use round skirted pads that are contoured to fit the horse's back since my saddle is round skirted. THose are getting harder to find. Reinsman is about the only brand that makes them and they aren't so cheap either.

    Was drug (dragged) kicking and screaming all the way to Alabama..... I'm originally from South Louisiana but went to school and (mostly) stayed put in Tx until I met this Bama boy in Mississippi at a draft horse school of all things.

    At Penzey's, make sure you pick up a catalog at the door, if you aren't already on their mailing list - there are frequently coupons for free items ;)

    KO is the closest western tack shop to me - the prices are really affordable, since much of what they have is closeout stock. Nowhere else can I get a sturdy 10' lead rope with braided on snap & leather popper end for $7, those ballistic material bell boots for $10/pair, or a nice quality pre-oiled western headstall for $15!

    Oh, yeah, I'm on Penzey's list. I have several coupon in my purse I wanted/needed to use! One thing about them, is the coupons don't expire! It has to have an expiration date on it, but they don't care. So it doesn't matter if I don't get there for awhile. I have been known to order online, but had rather go there myself.

    I need to make a trip to KO's and Teskey's. Haven't been to either. Tack around here sucks, very few people sell it, and it's expensive, or so cheap it falls apart!

    I haven't heard of KO's, Penzey's or Teskey's. What rock have I been living under? We have State Line and Charlotte's Saddlery here (towards Houston). Circle Y used to be open to the public years ago but aren't anymore. Isn't there a Dover up in the DFW area?

    CC, where is there a State Line?! I've been to Charlotte's(not much my thing because it's mostly english) and I've been to Teskey's up in Weatherford. It was on the way to go buy a goat, so heck, why not stop in and see?
