    Heya from Arid-zona!

    Hey everyone - I'm Katie, from Phoenix, Arizona. Have always been horse crazy from the moment I was born, much to the dismay of my parents. Would read anything and everything horse related that I could get my hands on and even would walk a couple miles to go visit neighbors horses when I could get away from classwork. (Procrastinate, rather.) Just recently found myself an owner of a somewhat bratty 3 year old unregistered quarter horse mare, who I named Echo. Her ground manners suck and she is very antsy but I've only had her a week (give or take) and we've already gotten down the personal space and tying nicely - we will be really getting into her training here in a day or two once my ankle heals up. Can't wait to see the wonderful horse I know she can be. Anyway, hi again! Glad to be here among people who share a similar passion.

    I live up north, so it isn't nearly as hot as where you are. However, it's hotter than I'd like already. I start melting if the temperature gets much over 80F.

    Oh, lucky! Here in Glendale it was about 106F today by noon... was going to go out and work with my mare today - took one step out the door and immediately turned back around. Love the winters here but man... these summers...

    It was 88F here today and is supposed to be 87F tomorrow. Still too hot, in my book.

    I would LOVE if it was still in the mid-high 80s here. It's warm but it's still livable outside. As it is now it's pretty much inconceivable going outside from about 10am-7:30pm. Went out a few days ago, stupidly, and forgot sunscreen so now I'm burnt to boot... now that 106 is more like 206.

    I used to live in Tucson, so I know exactly what you're talking about.

    Ah, I was actually going to move down there a year or two ago - had people say "it's so much cooler down here than it is up in Phoenix." Apparently 3 degrees makes that much of a difference? :P
