hi from MO

Hi,all. I'm 63 yrs old, but still riding (60 is the new 40, right?). I never had a horse until I was 30 yrs old. It was love at first sight, a gray mare from some breed called Arabian. She's passed away since then, but I've been riding nothing but Arabians since. I'm surrounded by the Mark Twain NF, and have over 25 miles of wooded trails just across the road from my mailbox. I feel very fortunate.

I'll be there in a couple hours.

If you had posted this yesterday I would not be joking, and I would have brought lunch!

Welcome, How about some photos af your Arab.

Are you anywhere near where the hikers froze to death, by Brushy creek?
So sad!

I hope my connectivity problems have been fixed.
I'm not familiar with that tragedy. I did hear of a man & his 2 young sons freezing to death, but they were bikers, I thought.
I'm just west of Ft. Leonard Wood.

I am sure, it was the same family. A father and his 8 and 10 year old sons were hiking the Ozark Trail down by Black, Missouri , by the Black river and Lesterville.
They were staying at Brushy Creek Lodge and missed the trail back to the lodge.
They found them the next morning.
I am just west of St. Louis.

I'm not familiar with the place of which you ladies speak. Will have to look it up. Berryman Trail/Brazil Creek are probably the most civilized places in the Mark Twain NF. The Cole Creek right across the road has nothing.
