Welcome new guys! I live in Pasadena, south of Houston, so not really close to either of y'all LOL.

Cyn, I feel the small horse pain. Henny, who will be two in April, is juuuust barely fitting his yearling halter on the tightest notch. He has the tiniest head! And Bubba wears pony size tack as well, as he should because he IS a pony. Henny has no excuse!

Here's my midget in his yearling(technically cob) halter. You can see it's still a bit big for him, but it's not falling off his face anymore!

Is anyone else expecting the sleet tomorrow?

Welcome new people! Glad to have you join the group most envied by everyone else on HF!! Well, we like to think so anyway.

DId anyone notice our group hit 10,000 likes?

I have a horrid headache today and have to go bend upside down to trim feet today. Not looking forward to that - seems to make it worse.

GHOSTRIDER I don't think we have anyone as far east as you - Sam Houston National Forest area is about it so it will be fun to get updates from your neck of the woods

I think I have the leak exposed now after tearing down a huge chunk of the ceiling in my horse trailer. Now I need a good rainy day to go sit in there and see exactly where it starts to drip so I can pin point the exact location.

I just reread everything I typed and could literally 'feel' the chaos - I think I may have figured out why I have a headache.

CC, trimming with a headache is definitely no fun! I trimmed a boarders mare with a headache just a couple days ago and that was a chore. She's been on stall rest the past couple weeks after impaling herself on the trailer divider latch, so she's all wound up on top of already being not so good about standing. She kicked out on her LH multiple times, catching my upper arm with her hock once. That was fun. Then while trimming her LF, she spooked at something and reared up and backed away from me. Scrambling up from the ground is definitely a head rush LOL.

She's not too bad, though. She is A LOT better than when she came here, manners and hoof wise. She'd been shod before coming to our barn so she had the typical long toe, high heel, contacted heel. Severe deep sulcus thrush(which is now gone in the hinds, beautiful hind frogs) and she had so much retained sole, her sole was bulbous! Imagine the sole touching the ground before the hoof wall. Ouch. But she's got great, hard feet that just need a bit more work before they're 100%

I will say though, horse like her make me glad my two behave so well. My farrier was so surprised at how good Henny is for standing for trimming, calling him broke, broke, broke. Proud mommy moment! But that's because mommy won't put up with any bad behavior. the only thing he does now is the "potty dance." I know when he starts fidgeting too much that he has to pee. He will NOT pee in the cross ties, so a quick step into the grass for a potty break and he's good to go. :)

Stands, and potty trained! Good training girl! Lol

CC hope your head gets to feeling better before you have to trim.

Welcome newbies...... I'm not looking back at names. Too lazy... Nicole and Ghost???

Kit has been standing well when she's trimmed. He asked if next time if I will put on the rope halter and just let him have her. Have her stand there, not tied, no one holding her. He's a good guy, I'll be there to watch. But, the easier it makes to trim the better. His wife (and he) are my riding buddies too. So, he knows he's going to be trimming her for a long time, and wants her to be like his horses, just stand there ground tied while he trims. Which is fine with me. She loves to nibble on him when he's doing her front feet. It will be fun to watch! Lol

That's awesome, Sully! Where are you located? Another member is in the Katy area, so she may be close to you, too.

We're also trying to plan a meetup at the Houston rodeo. Speaking of which, they finally posted the lineup! Here's a list: World-Famous Entertainers Set to Perform at 2014 RODEOHOUSTON® - Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
I myself would LOVE to see Zac Brown, but the last day of rodeo is totally and utterly crowded and horrible and no fun. Trust me. Their new website is really a pain to navigate, but it doesn't look like they have a complete schedule of the horse shows up yet. I'll have to keep an eye on it to see what will be good to go see.

ETA: Lol Nu, he is potty trained! When he had to pee in a "cup" to check his kidneys, the vet has him in the stocks inside. After five minutes of waiting, I asked if she wanted me to take him outside because he won't pee on anything other than dirt or grass. She said to just wait. Another five minutes, I ask again and she again says he'll pee in a second. Ten minutes later, I just grab him and take him outside, telling her to follow me. The second he hit that grass, he peed a waterfall. He'd been holding it for the trailer ride(20 minutes) plus almost half an hour! Poor guy.

I've been battling cedar fever all week myself. Darn mountain cedar trees! So, I feel your pain.

Welcome new Texans!

I'm looking forward to going to the barn tonight. Kitten and Acey have made so much progress in the month we've been at this new barn. Putting Acey into full time training has really made a huge difference!

I'm really looking forward to Saturday! Can't wait to meet everyone in person at the FWSS!

Cypress, Endiku isn't too far from me if that's who you mean. I would definitely go to a Houston rodeo meetup as long as my schedule allows it!

nuisance, yup, Nicole I just realized how "creative" I am at usernames... lol. Or names in general, I guess. I can't even think of a name for my horse, and I purchased him last June!
