Welcome, cgwiley! There are a few of us in the DFW area.

What are your boarding needs? Fullcare, partial care, self care? Stall or pasture? English or Western riding crowd? Show barn or casual riding facility? Do you need indoor arena, outdoor arena, roundpen, trails, any other specifics I've not listed?

Howdy folks! I just figured out, even thought the firewall blocks the posts.... if I wait awhile, it goes away and I can read them! Lol Howdy to those I don't see on FB, and to those I don't.
Going to a benefit ride in Ringling this weekend. Taking Lil to vet friday pm, going to ride my friends horse. Lil is starting to loose weight again, I've started putting peanut oil in her grain, she doesn't care for it, and leaves most of it for the other horses who don't need it. Going to get some beet pulp pellets today at lunch. But, she also has a knot come up on her spine that is tender. Saturday we rode at Lake Duncan, great ride, saw the bald eagles. Mid day stopped, let horses graze, relaxed a bit. Next thing I know, Lil is rolling... with the saddle on. Saddle bags with water on the back, cantle bag with phone, camera, truck keys, etc onthe front.... nothing hurt or lost, but that afternoon she just wasn't herself. Then I found the knot. She hasn't let me near her all week, so it was just last night found it, when she let me brush her down good. Don't know if she did something while rolling, or what. So to be safe than sorry, along with her loosing weight. Have appt at vet. Her cribbin collar is doing nothing to curb her cribbing. Silly horse

Proud horse mom moment! I rode the beast bareback for the first time today. It was NOT easy getting on, and I was worried how he was going to behave considering he hasn't been ridden in months and when I got him a few months ago he tried to kill me...But I have done a lot of work with him and he has come a long way. He was very well behaved. Unfortunately the only photographic evidence is blurry because my photographer was miffed at me for even attempting to ride him bareback. I am going to ride him again bareback and hopefully I'll have some good pictures next time.

Oh my gosh it seems like it's been forever since I've had a chance to get on here. This evening job on top of my substitute teaching is killing me. I also had to attend an unexpected funeral last weekend. My uncle passed away from a sudden heart attack at the age of 55. So it's been a crappy couple of weeks. On the bright side, I got a super cool trail ride in yesterday. I've had this bucket list thing on my list for the longest time about riding up to a drive through and ordering a hamburger. Well yesterday was that day. I don't know how many miles we covered, but I was in the saddle (my new Aussie by the way which I'm loving) for about 5 hours which is really good for my schedule. I have the sunburn to prove it. And Mojo was awesome!

My condolences on your loss, Mammak. Love the DQ pic, though!

Cash was not having it last night; in his defense he was covered in bug bite welts which he kept trying to chew on, but it was definitely a struggle to keep his focus on me. Hope to go play in the open field/trails across the street when I ride Friday, see if we can get some subtle training-which-doesn't-seem-like-training in...

Hi everyone!

I live in the Humble area and board near New Caney. I moved back down here from Indiana and finally got a horse of my own and I am looking to make other horse friends near my area. I would love to know of events that are coming up if there are any.
