    I know how you feel, my kids don't get out till May 22 or so, so anytime after that I am game.. I am looking forward to meeting you guys and going for a ride. I have been working with my horse and she is setteling down more and more each time I ride her. I wish I could find the arragant butt who abused her and let them know they almost ruined a wonderful horse. My mom made a comment to one of our neighbors yesterday that I have a knack for finding "rescue" horses and rehabilating them to the best of my ability. All I really do is take them and show them what love is and that not all humans are bad. They tend to warm up to me. I wasnt able to save Ginger because she had major health issues, but she had a wonderful last year here with me. I still miss her, but I know that Misty needs to be shown that there is love for her. I think by this summer she will be over the worst of her spookieness. She still dosent trust everyone that stops to admire her, but she is getting better. She has a lot mate that is real laied back that is helping her and I spend as much time with her as I possibly can, even if I am not riding her. I want her to learn that just because I go out there she dosent have to be ridden.
    There is a whole nother story as to why I connect well with horses and can understand them but that is kinda long (longer than this post...sorry it is so long) it is also on the sad but uplifting side (just ask if you want to know)

    Uh oh! Sounds like you'd better get your house cleaned up young lady - looks like you'll be having company this summer! Guess that means I need to clean mine up, too?

    I rather imagine Dancer will be out of action this summer, thanks to your DH's fugly stallion . Maybe your Dad will let me ride DJ - if I'm allowed to come along? (He'd better! Since technically both DJ and Dancer are mine!)

    Just so everyone knows - there are equestrian trails and camping at Prague Lake, Sportsman's lake at Seminole, Thunderbird Lake near Norman (I know they have trails, and I'm pretty sure they have an equestrian campground.) and some really excellent camping and trails at Robber's Cave at Quinton and Cedar Lake near Heavener. I know there are a LOT more around Oklahoma, but I haven't done any really serious research yet. Oh! I forgot Chandler/Bellcow lake! Supposed to be really nice!

    I wish we could go to the competitive trail ride at Prague. Maybe you and I should mosey over that way and just watch. They are supposed to be having some demonstrations and stuff. I wouldn't mind paying if there is a fee for observing.

    We are really going to have to get in touch with the couple selling the stock trailer - if you know what I mean?

    And Shea, dear - please try to work on your spelling...

    Love, Mom

    DH and I will be on vacation in the great state of Arkansas from 06/05/10 - 06/19/10. Any weekend before or after that, we can bring the little RV along. (Don't raise any eybrows - it's ancient, but it's paid for!) I'm too old to sleep with out a comfy bed, and I prefer cooking on a stove to a campfire (though I prefer EATING campfire food!)

    Now if we can just get Shea to call those people about that stock trailer!:roll:

    Wow looks like I would be the young one on the little adventure lol ill either be 17 or just barely 18 lol Oh well that's fine with me riding is riding no matter who you are with! And campfires and tents are always fun!

    Ill also be getting to test how Romeo does on an over night trip not this saturday but next. Me and some friends are going to the grasslands trails here in texas for an over night. We arent sure if they got pens up yet or not so the horses might have to either be tied, left in the trailers, or put on a tie line depending on what seems best.

    That is one thing that me and my mother agree on it isnt my fault that Dancer got preggers!! I want to geld the stalion--he isnt well built and his babys are not that good either. And no I would think that my mom was on her death bed if she didnt pick on me...lol
    The reason I think I bond so well with horses is that when I was nine months old I was burned pretty much from the waste down and the docs didnt think I would walk and if I did it wouldnt be normally. After many months of surgerys and hospital stays I went home. My parents had a shetland pony for me and my sis and they put me on her. The shape of the horse helped my tendons, ligaments and muscles streatch and strengthen to where I could walk pretty much normal. If you look at my walking today you can't even tell anything ever happened!! I do have some scaring, but I can live with that. As I got older we had to sell our horses because we didnt have the time to be with them like we should. After about twenty years I got three from a family member who had to sell theirs. I made a huge connection with Gin and when I was having a rough day I would go talk to her and she would give me hugs and kisses and it helped me feel better. But since I was little horses and I get along very well.
    Misty was abused by the owners who had her before the people I bought her from, and we took to each other right from the start.
    My mom teases me about "me and my rescue horses" but if I think the horse is something I can handle then I perfer a rescue. They seem to know you love them and you develope a tight bond. Misty does the same things with me as Gin did. When I am having a bad day I go and talk to her and she gives me hugs and kisses and helps me feel better. We are acutally helping each other. She is learning to trust again and is getting better at the spookieness (slowly, but that will take some time) and she helps me by just being there for me.
    Well that is the story, so let me dry my eyes...lol
