    I just got my internet back on after having no electricity since 1 AM until 10 AM.
    The horses are staying down in the trees. I tried to blanket a few of them yesterday but they were not having that.
    The heater in their water tank is working but they don't seem to be drinking much.
    Going to pull the hydration hay out and soak a couple of bales.

    There is no electricity or phone service at the farm and I dread to hear from Jesus or Miguel.
    There are several Pecan trees and a walnut tree planted by my great grandmother when she was first married. Ice always makes me worry that one will fall on the house.
    I drove up yesterday and helped put out lots of round bales for the horses and cattle.
    Now I just want this cold spell to go away. Shalom

    We just came back on a few hours ago too. We lost power and water from 11pm yesterday until 4pm today. Hubby and I and all 6 kids camped out around the fireplace last night and then the kids had a mean game of Monopoly going today. It was actually kind of refreshing to witness. The horses seem to be happy. I managed to get them all blanketed before the precip hit and they are nice and cozy under their overhang with plenty of hay. I'm with DBA though. Is it spring yet??????

    I envy you all that have shows around your area that you can go to for fun - especially open shows since they have so much more to offer those of us who don't train 24/7 and just like to show up for fun once in awhile. Here, there is the random 1 -2 open shows a year with very few classes for adults but only western pleasure/equitation and halter and I'm so BORED with those and everything here is geared towards the kiddos. Not a bad thing, but moms want to ride too!

    I would LOVE to have some sorting or penning stuff here. Either that or some low level dressage shows or hunter over fences shows. There just isn't much going on here unless it is a rail class. And this town is very anti-arabian and anti-gaited and anti-anythingnotquarterhorse.

    I have a friend up near Dallas who foxhunts on a regular basis on her big 18hh paint. Now that sounds like a blast! I used to be part of our driving club down here but they don't do much anymore either but once in a great great while.

    So depressing. And of course, I even looked up the membership list and I"m the only endurance rider within 50 miles of this place. Bah humbug!!!! I love my horses and I especially love social events with horses. If we ever get around to a meet and greet here, it better have horses!!!!!

    Clippityclop one of the reasons I am in no hurry to return to the farm in Lamar County is because of the bias against anything not a QH. Or the lack of any open shows that allow stallions or many english classes.

    Hey everyone I do know someone that is available to do a clinic. The cost would be minimal if we had it at her place in Josephine.
    Anyone interested? Shalom

    That's funny, CC & DB, I was just lamenting the fact that I can only find English disciplined schooling shows near Dallas and I want western! I guess the drive to Sulpher Springs for open shows is my only option. Of course, I need to get a truck and trailer before I can go anywhere! And that won't be in the near future with all funds going toward the honeymoon.

    I'm in the same boat Cynical. I can't do most of the things I'd like to do with my horse since I'm truckless and trailerless. I'm saving up for them, but I won't be in a position to make those purchases any time soon. ><

    I've been researching shows in our area and have a pretty extensive list. If anyone is interested, PM me and I can email you my list. :)

    Wouldn't it be neat if someone hosted a large website divided by region with subcategories of all disciplines where people could post their shows/events and at least a pdf flyer or 1 page showbill so you can see what's offered?

    It would be so much easier that way. Get some big corporate sponsors, set up adsense so it would pay for itself and once word got out, it would be a very useful tool.

    Good Morning. Hope everyone has made it thru the ice/snow injury/accident free. I'm at work. Whole town started 2 hrs late, except the clinic! Lol But, the roads were clear as a bell. I use to love the cold. But my joints tell me to hate it now!!!
