Hello from Texas!

Hi everyone! I rescue abused animals. I have 10 dogs, 7 cats, and my paint horse BJ. I rescued BJ from a guy who beat and starved her for almost 2 years. I also rescued an Old English Mastiff from the same people. Luckily, my horse has gained my trust and is now very spoiled rotten. She likes to listen to her radio and sway to the music. It's very funny! I couldn't ask for a better horse. I am still having trouble keeping weight on her, but my vet and I are working on it. It's nice to meet everyone!

WELCOME WELCOME! There are some great topics here and lots to chat about so have fun! :)

I know how you feel! I bought my gelding a month ago and he is a year and a half and only weighed 600lbs when we first got him. he has filled out a bit, but it still feels like he fluctuates.good luck!

Welcome to the forum. I don't do "rescue" just live in dog/cat/chicken dump heaven. I guess there must be an invisable sign in front of my house that says "dump your unwanted animals here".

Hi everyone and thanks for welcoming me and my horse. I still can't figure out how to resize a picture of her so I just added one that was small enough. I am using Vista so I still have alot to learn and explore because it is so different than XP. I am going to try to add a picture here, but I don't know if it will work. Sorry my illness causes alot of confusion so it might take me awhile to unconfuse my brain. lol Okay, the upload picture will not work so I'll try to find the problem and hopefully can post a picture soon. My horse and I wish you all a Happy New Year!
