That is a beautiful area, lots of places to ride, you are close to some great state areas, and the largest trail ride in the state if mot the midwest. I am a bit far.
I am about 60 miles west of St Louis on HWY 70.
My horse's DVM dentist lives down your way and he is amazing. He is in Marshfield, to far to be your regular vet, but think about going to him for dentistry. He makes the rounds all over the state, he comes up and does our group, about 10 owners, twice a year.
You are also close to the hometown of Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote "Little House on the Prarie" she was from Mansfield, also in Mansfield is a great organic seed co, for the life of me I can't remember the name now though.
When are you moving?
My caravan will start on the 30th. We have 3 trucks with trailers and the car going out.Then come back to MD and get the LQ an horses and my stock trailer with the motorcycle in it. So probably won't be their and totally moved in until the 15th of June...Can't wait to meet some new peeps...
