Glad you made it through the orientation TG!

Welcome, Womack! I ride TWH too! I wish you were closer, I have nobody to ride with either. I would love to burn up some trails

So, long story short, due to losing a watering trough I was forced to open the divider between the horses pastures day before yesterday. I figured heck, it's been nearly a month since Pan and Dalilah have been separated. They weren't calling for each other and running the fence line, weren't worried about what the other was doing, etc. He turned into such an independent boy and did his own thing. Well, all that's gone to s***. He started nursing again!! I assumed he was just sucking and getting nothing and would stop. I was wrong. Of course she has milk, of course! I'm so annoyed, all that time for nothing and now I have to start all over again!

Also, I've come to the realization that I'm just going to have permanently black disgusting feet. There's no other way around it. This Texas dirt has it out for me and I just can't win this battle. I have succumbed to dry feet and cracked heels.

Ems, that does suck (pardon the pun LOL). I went through that with my oldest, Rafe. I weaned him late at about 10 months. I'd had him separated for several months and figured he was done until one afternoon when he escaped his pasture. First thing he did was go to the pen where his momma was and start trying to nurse her across an electric fence . Another few months though and that was all done and I could turn them out together without issue.

The one that started really tripping me out is Bessie, my Belgian mare, only ever had Rafe. He was her first and only foal and that's been 4 years ago. When I brought Talyn home and was finally able to turn her out into a herd, she worked up to it and started nursing on Bessie...and Bessie started making milk! I think she's just a hussy for being a momma LOL. Now that Talyn's turned out with all geldings, I don't have a problem anymore.

As for your feet, about once a week, scrub them with a pumice stone after soaking them in a tub of warm water for a while. After that's done, dry them off and apply a generous coating of either Vaseline or some of this stuff. Put on a pair of lightweight socks and go to bed. By morning, you'll be shocked at the difference. Continue with the nightly application of the moisturizer and socks and then just scrub with the stone every couple of weeks or whenever you feel like you need to.

EMS wish you were closer too. We relocated back to Lubbock from the area around Corsicana and I admit I am glad to be back in the red dirt and not that nasty black dirt. That black dirt was weird but maybe I think that because I grew up in this red dirt. Hate it for you that you have worked so hard to wean and ended up in that mess. When we were up that way we used to go to Lake Whitney often to ride and a place around Athens that was private land. I currently ride the cotton fields daily around here headed out soon this morning high is supposed to be 102 today. I have friends ranch around Turkey to ride on. There is Caprock Canyon state park and a private area that many people go to called Pole Canyon.

Robertson is my married name and that would be funny if we were distantly related. Here is something to make everyone laugh my name is Brandy and my husband is Brady. Last time we traveled out of the country it became a nightmare because of the name thing .

Darn hear the tractors out this morning guess I will saddle up and just ride the field behind our house. It has good trail laid out because all of the kids here ride their dirt bikes and 4 wheelers on it.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I have enjoyed the time I've spent with my kids so far:) Friday night after picking up my daughter in Commerce, we went for my sons birthday dinner and found a car show in Greenville, man they had some nice american muscle cars.... Last night out with friends from out of town then continued family fun at Shenaniganz with bowling and then they played some arcade games. It's cool to watch them play around like little kids rather than the adults they've grown to be
