Hi y'all. I'm way down south in the Rio Grande Valley. Harlingen to be exact. We have a small place with 5 horses. 2 Quarters, 6 and 23, 1 Morgan about 15, 1 Magdaloran Marchador 4 yr old, and an OTTB thats 13. They all do real well down here in the heat. The only one we really have to watch hard is the Thoroughbred. He's my number 1 boy, and he's a great grandson of Seattle Slew, and one of the best Trail Horses I've seen. About as close to Bomb Proof as you could hope for! WE love it down here except for the extended dry/hot periods. It gets hard to ride much when it's so hot. But we squeeze in short rides when we can in the late evenings or early morning, humidity allowing of course! We're fortunate to have our own hay field so that eleviates alot of our feed issues. Anyone else in here from the valley?
