I just got to thinking. I have the perfect box to use. Just need to get my tack shed built, so I can take my tack out of it! DH has worked 7 wks straight without a day off, including Thanksgiving. And he'll probably work Christmas also. Won't be getting my tack shed soon..... unless I use some of that overtime money, and buy a ready made one!

Acey is settling in wonderfully at the new barn. The BO called to tell me that Acey is now her favorite horse ever because she is so laid back and easy going. She's not high maintenance, doesn't cause problems in the pasture and has great ground manners. :). I'm a proud horse Mom.

This was the right decision for us for sure. Acey seems happier and I sleep better at night knowing that she is well cared for.

That's great, HorseMom!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday! I'm only working half a day, have a sushi lunch date, then heading to the barn. Stinks that the day I actually have daylight to work in it's raining, but I can just torture Cash with more clipper desensitization in the dry barn ;)

It feels like spring, maybe even early summer here today. I had to turn on my AC in the house, and sometime in the past day or two, my horses' legs have been covered in bot fly eggs. It was 77 here yesterday and so many flies have hatched out the past couple of days.

It was 70 when I arrived at the barn two hours ago, currently 48!

In other news, proud of my Cash - great ride despite so little opportunity to do anything with him for two Weeks.

Happy Saturday y'all!

Crazy weather in the past few weeks, huh? But, that's just Texas for you.

Anyways, I've got a busy, busy day today. Therapy session at noon, Christmas shopping, and then my family is getting together to celebrate Christmas together tonight, since that's really the only time that we can all do it. Plus I've got applications for school, work, etc, that need to be filled out.

Weather has been weird as always! Definitely Texas for you. Went from El Paso to Houston for a family visit and the weather has been throwing me off!

But, since I'm in Houston, I just spend way too much money on tack and accessories for my horse. Got more "presents" for her than for anyone else in my family. Ooops.

Yes, the weather is being a bit weird. Freezing temps for the next four days here. Looks like my pony will finally get a chance to go retro! I will post a pic before he rolls.

Hi Texas friends!

I'm in Randall County (live in Amarillo) and keep my horses in Canyon on a ranch near THE canyon - that's we what call Palo Duro Canyon around here, haha - and I am so blessed to be there. A great friend of mine owns it, and this ranch is seriously a slice of heaven compared to the flat land everywhere here! It has a creek, plenty of foliage, lots of riding space; it's like a mini Palo Duro Canyon. ;)

My two horses are Tennessee Walkers. One is my trusty 12 year old, Traveller, and the other is extremely new as I only got him on December 12th. His name is Reb and he is just four years old - I'm letting him get to know me and will ride him soon to see if he is going to work out or not. Here's hoping he does because he is a sweet little horse on the ground! ;)

Nice to meet everyone!
