We had a Ruby Tequila's here in Wichita Falls, did a good business. I really liked it. Then one day, it wasn't open. They didn't even tell the employees they were closing! Something about someone stealing money. They never reopened. :(

Sonic, actually has good breakfast burritos. When McDonalds had their McSkillet burrito, I liked it, but they don't have it anymore.

Living so close to Mexico, we have a million and one little "mom and pop" authentic Mexican restaurants around here. Going to one for lunch today. My stomach is complaining about having to wait another hour LOL.

We live in a town that I think has 621 people officially. But the area is wide spread with farms and mini farms and the high school is huge.

Montgomery Texas has a mcdonalds, a subway, a steak house, two other burger places, a nice resturant/wine bar, a family restaraunt, a diner, a cafe, and THREE mexican places.

More than that if you go all the way to the lake, which is technically Montgomery, but really more like Conroe.

I'm starving again just catching up since posting last night. I always have room for mexican even if I just ate. I have hidden compartments for storage in my butt and my thighs.


Here's something that has to do with eating that will make us a little less hungry....someone from our riding group posted a pick of this enterolith that the vet took out of her stallion's intestine a few days ago. These are common in horses in their teens who have lived on a diet of alfalfa and supplements or feed where no one paid attention to the calcium phosphorus ratio and had too high magnesium.

How neat, CC!

All this food talk has me ready for lunch! Left over Grimaldi's pizza, mmm. Pesto, artichoke hearts & kalamata olives - pure perfection on a Brooklyn-style crust. Too bad there's no left over wine...

I forwarded the pic to DH .. he's one of those silly people that think if a little bit is good, then a LOT must be better.

I have to watch him really close about feeding the horses. He was fixing Gunnie's feed and I noticed runny manure.. asked him if he had upped the supplement (that contains mag) .. he had DOUBLED it.. *thud* .. "well, it seemed to be working sooo well I thought I'd give him more."

Drives me nuts. I don't allow him to prepare the feed anymore...

I am totally convinced DH's ego is directly tied to the amt he spends on feed and how much he can put in the feed bucket.

yeah, and if DH and Gunnie have a good workout, I'll hear him telling Gunnie "You're going to get a BIG dinner tonight" .. *sigh*

NO.HE'S.NOT...

We live in one of those worlds that as soon as we think we've got the feed figured out, something changes again and we have to learn something new.

Feeding magnesium to nervous or hot horses is 'all the rage' around here where I am - and it tends to go hand in hand with horses who are stalled most of the day with saddle time as their only 'outside' time. We try to tell those folks who feed alfalfa to read the feed labels on their pelletized feed and make sure they aren't overcompensating. Our co-op and horse organization offer free nutrition classes to those who want to learn. It won't hurt the first year, or even the 10th. But it does add up....and that is what you get.

There are no hypotheticals about enteroliths - you can break it with a hammer and find out exactly what minerals the horse has consumed over the years. And the above feeding regime (alfalfa/over-supplementing/magnesium excess) is the main one that causes these huge monsters.
