    I'm over the mud, too! Put two easy walk/trot rides on Cash this weekend. He's not pleased that I'm on him, but he's responding decently to my cues. Keeping forward movement is our biggest hurdle..

    Its been a great weekend! Our hoof n foot rodeo went great yesterday afternoon then we had a potluck dinner and dance at the church:) rode my mare today and she did great! Had someone out to look at buying one of our horses today (Joe) and he was a huge brat. Turns out he was out in his neck and shoulder. Good thing one of the ladies in the barn is a hotse and people massage therapist! So we'll see how he does tomorrow after being somewhat adjusted.

    Monday came way too soon, but I've got Pumpkin creamer in my coffee, so all is not lost. Hope it's a good week for everyone!

    Happy Monday everyone!

    DBA, I think it is wonderful that you have been able to literally hang on to so much family history. Not many people were able to do that - especially in these changing times. There is a guy down the road who bought about 50 acres and painstakingly moved in a big, two story white-washed farm house with a wrap around porch about a year ago and he has been slowly renovating it bit by bit. The house is very old and doesn't belong to anyone in his family, but apparently it has its own history and he believed it was worth saving and I admire him for that. I'm sure it is costing him way more than it is worth.

    I get so excited when I meet people who have old barns and such and let me rummage through them. I get tickled to death when I find old horse related stuff - my favorite treasures to find are home made bits and home made iron horseshoes.

    Need help with Texas Horse Friends

    I want to join up with ya'll, but am always confused as to how to start, since there are so many pages. I've tried starting at the last page, but realize there are many things I've missed from the previous pages. I love this forum, but feel this area is where I need to be. I'm just a simple country girl, I rode western before I became disabled, and I have my own horse. I am going to be going to a specialist soon, to see if I might need surgery or something to get me to riding again. I just find many of the people on this forum to be super critical, as in thinking everyone has to spend loads of $$$$ to own a horse, and have the best of everything, sparing no expense. I don't need or even want a lot of fancy trappings to enjoy horses. I might not can ride yet, but I love grooming my mare, feeding her, buying her whatever she needs health wise. I like laid back, down to earth people, like most of ya'll seem to be. Thanks

    We are glad you are here linda! What kind of mare do you have? Got any pics of her, we love pictures:) Are you in Texas, if so where? Yes, there are some critical people on the forum but here we're just horse loving people with a few chicken, dog, cat, goat lovers too.

    Thanks, everyone

    Thank you so much. I have 2 hens, 4 silkies, and own half a billy goat. All of those live at my daughter farm. I live in an apt., and have a long hair Chihuahua named Cookie. My horse is a grade QH mare, her name is Mystery, and I have pictures of her when I got her, but none more recent, because I got so much critical comments, I didn't want to take any new ones til she was in better shape. She is really coming along, though. Here are some pictures of her, the first being the day I got her, and the next one being a month or so after that.

    Oh no, it seems I have forgotten how to post pics on this site.

    Welcome aboard Linda. You'll love this thread. Sometimes I forget I'm on this forum when I visit with these folks. I too think this forum can be VERY harsh and when I first started posting I was scared to death to ask questions. I'm still careful and overthink a lot of what I post because SOMEONE will have something critical to say about it, but here, naaaaaaaa. ;) This seems to be a great melting pot thread and of course you have your typical Texas friendliness. Start posting away. If you want to post pics, you need to click on "postreply" instead of just the quick reply on the bottom. It'll then give you a spot to do attachments from your computer by clicking on the paper clip. So you're in Baytown? My sister used to live there when her husband worked for Exxon I think it was. Been a while though. :)

    A couple of months later

    This was back in July. She's come a long way, even the farrier says so, and yes, I need new pics.
