    Ya know, I didn't even know it was clouding up cause I had been working at my computer all day and when I walked out the front door, it seemed nice then I checked oit back and saw it. No, we didn't get any rain but it did bring some cooler temps:)

    DB, don't tempt me. Lol. I will have an empty slot, since my mare won't be ready at that time, so I will only be taking my gelding. So maybe DH can ride him then, if I will ride Flame. If not, maybe someone has a hubby safe horse (I'd call him an advanced beginner, he can stick pretty well, but he wants to relax on a trail ride, not worry about a horse acting up) that he could use? Pretty please? If not, we'll figure something else out.

    ETA, DB, if you'd like to ride my gelding, you are welcome to of course. We do only have English saddles, don't know if you mind that. ;)

    Outnabout, my back is doing great - I stopped taking the Aleve for the past couple of days just to see where I stand - and pretty good so far. Can't exercise or run or Zumba without feeling a 'twang' so I'm satisfied with the fact that I can at least get up and do my own chores around here. I can tie my own shoes - that's a plus. Residual pain low in the middle - feels kind of like when a person first starts to go into labor or like having bad back cramps during, well you know....TMI? LOL! But I feel it getting better every day. I need it to get better - my horses need pedicures and I am the farrier. One day at a time!

    CAN"T WAIT to get on a horse - it can't come quick enough.

    BOY it is hot in here - the AC unit's fan motor quit yesterday - was hosing horses off in the yard and hear that familiar sound of a fan motor going out - like a screeching woman. We set it up with another fan, but it isn't pulling enough air we just turned off the unit completely. It's about 85+ inside - not bad if you sit still, but we'll be eating out tonight. NO way am I even going to boil water and heat up the house more.

    I'm thinking hot wings and a hot fudge brownie sundae sounds like a good way to finish out the day!

    Talked to DH, he has no issue riding my gelding, so he'll be good. He did like Late September, ideally early October for 2 reasons: 1. Heat won't be as bad, 2. He is on too many business trips August/September to say if he could make it. And he votes McKinney Roughs, because it's closer. ;) Ontop of that, we need to make sure the trailer is ready to go (Electrical works, but is a little weak, so we have to fix that and ensure brakes are working) and are breaking in our new truck (yeay!).

    What are everyone elses' thoughts? Preferences so far?

    CC, so glad to hear your back is doing better! The rest will come in time, just take it as it gets better.

    I love the area around Austin . If shoes are required I would need to know.
    None of my arbians and only a couple of the QHs have ever had shoes on their feet.
    Kctops husband is not the only one to trim one of the arabs and comment on the improbablity of attaching a shoe to those hard feet.
    IMO the people hosting the event need to make it as simple as possible to ensure that most can attend.
    Are there horses for rent at either of these places? In case someone does not want to haul horses a couple of hundred miles one way.
    Shalom

    DB, that's why I will have to talk to my farrier. I have had multiple people (including farriers) comment on how hard my geldings feet are. He's coming next Friday, so I'll let you know what he thinks. I haven't been to either area, so cannot tell you what accommodations are there. CC probably knows best, or TG. Sadly, I also don't have any horses to offer to anyone. Still working on getting number 2 broke. She needs to evict that baby already so we can continue training! Lol

    Totally off topic, but here is a thread about someone that knows their target audience: http://www.horseforum.com/horse-talk...making-231458/

    Yeah, my boy will definitely not be ready for a trail ride this fall, so I'm out unless I find a rental horse, lol.

    My brain has already checked out for the weekend. My body is having a hard time waiting 1.5 more hours to leave...

    If my daughter's mare gains enough weight by then we would have an extra for someone to ride. Although she has the worst hair cut.....not done by us though. She's a gorgeous Palomino, almost white! Pan will be weaned by then so I can leave his little butt at home! Woo hoo!

    I want to see DB get on and ride DH's monstrous gelding, he's over 16hh right now, pushing 17.
