Another horse owner in Texas

I had recently joined this awesome community but was too tired to actually post anything!
My name is Andrea. I live in Bulverde, TX with my husband, 3 kids, and a variety of animals which includes, horse, of courses.

This is my 6 year old mare, Bailey. She's a tri-colored dappled buckskin. She's still in training but at least I am able to ride her now. Been bucked off twice but she's learned that I get right back on! This photo is when I first got her. She was on the chunky side but looks a lot better now.


This is my little snot rocket, Brandy. She was orphaned at 3 months of age and she's 19 months old now. She's coming along very well with her training but she'll still try to pull off a prank now and again. Biting, mostly! Everyone is already making plans to be here for my first ride on her...with the video cameras!


I adopted both of my girls from a horse rescue. Bailey was a "junk yard horse" meaning that the owner of a junk yard brought in a bunch of horses for nothing more than to eat the weeds off of his property. He did nothing about the food situation once the weeds were gone. Brandy's situation was much worse. She is very small for her age right now and her vet thinks that she was dropped early since her mom was extremely emaciated. The vet that attended her mother called the law on the previous horse owner and reported the walking skeletons on the property.

I am happy to have found such a great horse forum! I'm looking forward to learning some training tips from the more experienced folks here.

Welcome! I hope you'll share one video of the first ride on her! She looks like she's going to be a blast ;)

Hello there! I'm also a fellow Texan from Katy, TX. You'll find that there's quite a few of us here! Love your two girls, and can't wait to see more pictures from you!

I certainly do plan on sharing those videos because I'm sure she's going to be one heck of a ride! Part of me is looking forward to it and the other part is saying,"You're out of your freakin' mind!"

Big hello from Austin, Texas! Cute horses, cheeky little boogers... Lovely story too, glad they found a home with you.

P.S. Endiku, I didn't know you were from Katy, that's right where my family lives, I'm down there all the time!!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
