Thanks for the welcome everyone. Actually our little town is Trenton. Nobody ever knows where that's at so I just say north of McKinney. I'm always baffled that even folks in McKinney don't know Trenton and we're like 15 miles up the road. But when your population is 635, I guess you're not overly popular. :) Horsemom, I would love to start getting more involved again. We've lived here for 3 years but I'm the only horse nut in my circle of friends so I haven't run across the connections yet to get involved again. My horses haven't been hauled in those 3 years. Two of them I hauled down here from VA and the other two we bought in the area. We lost our trailer in a fire in 2011 and just got another one this spring. It needs some TLC but its doable. I may have to take you locals up on some fun stuff for both me and my daughter to participate in as long as they allow oldies like me. I turn 40 this fall. LOL! Just in years though. Not in heart. ;)

Ems husband was headed back to TN to get their belongings and he broke down pulling a 30 ft trailer near Little Rock. Then finally got a tow to a shop in the middle of the night. He has to be in class Monday .. in Texas

Oh and meant to post this too. My horses are fat because of RICE BRAN! I buy a 50lb bag for $ 8.50 and it last me 3 weeks . I swear by the stuff and your horses coats will feel like glass. Shalom

Thanks for the rice bran info! Oh and EMS's dh truck is fixed and he is back on the road to TN to get their stuff!!!

Oh and we have rain Hopefully my horses are taking advantage of the wet stuff failing from the sky because we turned them out last night because there was no mention of rain on the forecast I saw!

Oh and 1 more thing, our barn owner has a new longhorn calf (brown and white). Not sure if it's a bull or heifer yet as momma is very protective. The calf is very cute and was born sometime yesterday.

My BFF grew up in Trenton, and it's only a few miles up the road from our barn. :). We drive thru Trenton on our way to the HCHA shows in Sulphur Springs. :)

Our barn is very welcoming to adults and kids. Team sorting on Friday nights is run by Clay West and he welcomes all levels of riders. They even have horses to lease if you don't have one or feel like hauling. :)

At the play days, we have a couple of riders in the 18+ age group who run the games for fun.

I'm only a trail rider myself, but my daughter does a little bit of everything on her mare. I bet she would LOVE another friend her age to ride with. :)

OMG!!! PM me the info if you don't mind. I'm trying to find things to do while I wait on my guy to grow/find a better saddle to fit him.
