I wish I could Womack! But I live in Big Spring, and I do not have a trailer to trailer him. I see you from Lubbock, that's like an hour from me, do you know of any good places to ride around here? So when I get a trailer (who knows when!) I will know where to go!

I feel the no trailer pain! I've been casually shopping, but I need a WB size and for it to still be light enough to haul with a 1500. I had an f250 with a gooseneck hitch but I got hit and it was totaled.

Me too sullysrider! My horse is 18 hands! Maybe little taller. Tall tall boy. And my husband got a chevy 1500 with no gooseneck. Big horse problems.

Big horse club haha! I was actually looking to buy smaller this time around, 16.2 and under, yet somehow I ended up with bigger! I had to re-buy everything! Oversized everything, 60" girth, and I had to have custom straps put on his open front boots since even the largest size made was too small.

Teehee! I had to buy a pony sized girth for my itty bitty QH, and I fear he'll never grow into the Full Horse size halter I bought...

Hi guys! I'm currently in Denver and we just found out (yesterday!) we're getting transferred back to DFW (Dallas, specifically). We were there for 3 years before out 15-month stint in Denver, but I wasn't a horse owner back then. I'm looking forward to getting out of all this snow, but will definitely miss the hiking!

I've spent all morning looking for places to pasture board my gelding. He'll be a trail horse when he's old enough to go under saddle.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi

Hi everyone,
Justin joined and seen this thread. I live out side of San Augustine, Tx (deep east Texas) have been around horses all my life. Got out of them for about 5 years when I went into the Marine Corps and am just now getting back into it. I mainly just do ranch work and will hit a team roping every now and then.

Anyone from around the Hemphill, Pineland, Jasper Area?

Welcome, Ghost & Nicole!

Nicole, I'm in Dallas and board in Cedar Hill :) Most places in Dallas-proper will be running $600+/mo for full care because it's city where land is scarce. Going towards the suburbs you can find self-care around $100/mo, a few with pasture board around $300/mo, then $400-1000/mo for most places with stalls.

Hi all and Happy Hump Day!

I just got the most amazing news from work, A RAISE, which I haven't seen in 4+ years due to the economy and cutbacks. Tears of joy;) Just goes to show good things come to those who wait!

Is everyone ready for Saturday? I am, but DH is not going to go, I don't think. My oldest and her bf are moving to Oklahoma and dh got volunteered to help (not by me). They have a uhaul that his company is paying for and they don't have a bunch of stuff???? Kids.....go figure.....

Anyways, welcome to the newbies, this is a great group of people to chat with and even vent to about anything!

Cynical25... $600?? Yeah, the Dallas-proper boarding thing isn't going to happen, lol. I pay $235 for everything here, and we're in a decent-sized city! My husband works apartment maintenance and the company provides our housing for us, so we can't just move closer to affordable boarding. We have to live within a certain radius of his work. Until I finish grad school and bring in a second income, we'll be staying downtown. After that, we're looking at Grapevine/Colleyville (we have two school-age daughters).

I've found a few places that offer pasture board about 30 miles away that seem good. I'll look more into while we're there and I can drive out and see what traffic is like. We lived in Euless last time we were in the area and all I remember is 183 and almost any road to Grapevine being atrocious lol.
