Welcome Jewels. I live just north of DFW between McKinney and Bonham. Good to have you here. This is a chatty bunch so dive right in. :) I'm off to do some riding before it gets too hot. Would have been out there earlier, but I had to roundup children from various sleepovers. :)

Welcome Jewels.

Speaking of jewels.... ya'll ready for more eye candy tonight? Reminds me, I need to go charge my phone!

My dog has rolled in something dead! she smells to high heaven. DH was blaming it on the moth balls I put in the garage (still mice free due to said balls), But, it's definitely a dead smell! Gave her a shower with me this morning. Her collar is in the washer. She still smells dead! Guess I'll douse her with vinegar! won't hurt! lol

So, I was just at an adoption event for the Pomeranian rescue I volunteer for in Garland. What a nice day today, weather-wise. Pretty fun event too .

Oh, and I just heard that my old foster, Autumn, was being adopted today. Yay!

Aren't these temps crazy for August???!!! My thermometer says 87 and it's now 2:30! I ended up riding two of my horses which took me until almost 2pm and I could have kept right on going but I gotta be a mom at some point today too. LOL! Wish this would last but it does kind of give ya a light at the end of the summer tunnel. :)

LOL, I savvy that! We've had highs in the upper 70s and low 80s for several days now. Even right now, at almost 3 in the afternoon, it's only 79 degrees....though it's very humid, which is basically unheard of for this part of TX. The only time we have any humidity at all to speak of is when it's actively raining LOL.

Thinking of you, KC! Hope she does well in Colorado.

Hello, jewels! I'm in Dallas.

Weather is fantastic! Cash got a long grooming session and a brief workout. He was super sweet.

Cocoa (new dog) is not thrilled with our original dog, Oakley, but they are figuring it out.

Hope y'all enjoy the rest of the weekend!

The temperature is just right for me. Absolutely glorious!

The same to you Cyn, I hope everyone's weekend is going well. I'm taking Jane to Pooch Plunge at Wet Zone tomorrow afternoon, so that should be fun.

Hi there yall!

So my mother moved to Arizona on the 7th and she was unable to take her horse Big Boy with her. She searched high and low for a place to put him at that didnt cost an arm and a leg but there was nothing. I even tried to do some research on here for her.

Big Boy is 28 and is like a brother to me. I was 3 when we got him. Taught me how to ride and was the first horse I "drove" all by myself. My mom asked me if we wanted him. Of course I said yes! He's too old to be sold and is not in the best condition right now. He had a hard hard winter and is STILL coming back from it. There's no way I was going to let him become a European steak!! Now me and my husband cant ride him but he is perfect for our boys to ride on. They've rode him over the years but just in the pasture or arena. I was excited and scared at first cause I have not owned a horse as an adult. Ive mentioned before how my horse died when I was 16/17 years old (old age) and that was 7/8 years ago.

Big Boy has some bad habits we have to work on though. (Hes a spoiled brat lol) He likes to stay at arms length away when your trying to get him and right as you get an arm under his neck he pulls his head away and walks off. (SOOOO ANNOYING) And you dont dare let him see that halter or he will walk circles around you just out of reach.

All and all I'm happy to have him and happy that my boys have a solid safe mount to learn on!!

~Being on the back of a horse is my idea of heaven!~

The tack swap was so nice! There were TONS of booths even at 1:30 when I got there after work. I wish I'd had more time to browse. I did walk out spending a total of $20 and got an Atlas bling belt for $10 and a Billy Cook breast collar for $10. Made $75 selling my unused tack! I wish they had this sale once a month. It was really neat.

This weather is totally awesome! Perfect for what I'm going to do today! I'm going to attempt to trim some minis with severely overgrown feet. My farrier assures me I can do it but I'm going to bombard him with a million pictures and questions. So I'm going to sit my butt down, lay their foot in my lap, and just take my time. Wish me luck! ;)
