    I've been preparing for Sour's delivery in the past few days, fixing up her stall and making a foaling kit. I'm just so darned excited! Hopefully Baby stays in for atleast another two-three weeks, but I figured its best to be prepared than not!

    I don't think I could ever get use to the city life!!! I have always lived in a small town. Iowa park, where I live, is only about 7000 people, give or take a few. We just moved 5 miles south of town, love the country!!! My sister just moved to n. Richland hills (dfw area). I just couldn't do it. Dh wanted to find a house in wichita falls, 100,000 people. I gave him a emphatic no!
    I can't wait for my mare's hoof to heal so I can ride!! I hate borrowing other peoples horses.

    Not many people can say they have been bucked off by a lippizaner.
    I might not have spelt that right,
    What should you do with him?
    Stay in the Saddle!!!!
    Have fun.
    OK I'm back in Dallas for a couple of days.
    Going from an apartment in downtown Dallas to not having a nieghbor within 2 miles is getting strange.
    Hey the views in both places are great though. Shalom

    I had a QH mare like that once. We got her as a yearling, fresh off her momma, never had been touched by a human. She bullied the other yearlings so much, they had to separate her, and they couldn't do anything with her. They were going to put her down because they said she was evil. Dad convinced previous owners to let us have her, they wouldn't let us pay for her, said wait until we know if we can keep her or not. I was maybe 14 or 15 at the time. We got along famously. She would do anything I wanted her to. But, no one else could touch her! We were out of state on vacation once, and she got a hoof injury, and my brother couldn't catch her to get her to the vet, so he called one of my friends who had been around her quite a bit, and she reluctantly let my friend catch her. But until the day she died, I was the only one who she let do anything with her.

    That's exactly how he is. She's his comfort zone I guess. He came from some fancy breeding stable in europe.

    Foal
    Hi Everyone!

    I joined this forum a few months ago, but have been a serious lurker the entire time! Figured I'd introduce myself here now...

    We are 25 miles north of Austin in Williamson county.My 10 year old Arab gelding is boarded at a barn, 10 minutes away from my house. Early 2010 we left Tucson,AZ for Seguin,TX and stayed until Dec 2010. Since then,we've been up here in Leander. I do like like this area a little better, but sometimes miss the farm house on 25 acres we had in Seguin. Boarding has made my horse happy to have company,and me happy to learn more from others.

    At some point I'd love to venture away from the my barn's arenas and pastures to ride.It would be great to actually meet other "horse people", as this is my first horse in a little over 25 years. I have had him for 2 years now, and things are coming along better than I would have thought 2 years ago! Plus the people I know here aren't into horses (Hubby included). They just DO NOT GET IT when I talk too long on "What I did at the barn today".


    This forum has taught me so much already.Really looking forward to meeting some of you.

    Welcome. I went thru a 25-30 yr horse hiatus also, have had mine just over a year. Iv'e been out of the horse "business" so long, so much has changed, and i've lost touch with horsey people. But, i'm slowly finding new, yet old horse friends, here and in person.
    I grew up in s. Calif, we rode in the mountains, here we ride up and down the highway! Big deal. But i've found some great places to ride, so look forward to riding more when, 1. It cools down, and 2. My horses hoof heals, should be rideable by mid fall.... I hope.....
