    I'm 49.
    Have an Arabian.
    Love to trailride.
    Don't get to much....
    How come? There are so many beautiful parks around.

    We're taking things one step at a time. There's a lot of stuff that kicks back in at just the right moment from spending so much time on horseback as kids. And then there's so much that has changed. We rode our horses barefoot and were considered a bit cruel, yet we never had hoof problems.

    Okay, so why aren't you out there in this beautiful weather with your Arab? Hmmmmm?

    I'm tickled that you're in my neck o' the woods ~ sweet!

    Welcome to the forum :) as Smrobs said, we're glad to see that you finally got back into our wonderful horsey world! I'm sure that you'll meet many helpful people here.

    I'm also a neighbor of yours...there's quite a few Texans on the HF! I hail from Katy, a suburb of Houston.
    Sure, we've been to Katy. They have that great equestrian facility there. Didn't Buck Branamann hold a clinic there not too long ago? I saw his movie and I'd luvluvluv to go to one of his clinics. The man has a whole lot o' horse sense.

    I'm happy to be here

Pundt Park is wonderful....as is the trails around Cypress Creek. We ride oftenin Tyrrell Park in Beaumont and up at Ebenezer in Jasper. That is a blast. Check out my blog to see tons of pics of Ebenezer. Hope to bump into you soon!
    Dang, it's a small world. I really enjoy Darolyn's operation, and I think she's a smart lady by renting her horses out to keep them in shape. What caught my eye was her 'barefootin' philosophy and the fact that she uses hackamores on all of her beasts. Same setup I had as a kid, and I can dig it.

    I remember seeing a few of your posts here and there. I'll definitely check out your blog, tho I think I already have it bookmarked.

    I look forward to seeing you on the trails sometime. It looks like you travel quite a bit with your horse - have ever been to 7IL ranch in Cat Spring?

    We spent most of the day with the boys today. I'm loving it - I finally found something to get my husband away from the boobtoob. We made great progress and I'm extremely pleased. Bob's buckskin pulled up lame a couple of weeks ago - frog abscesses in both front feet. Fortunately, he's healing up nicely after a couple of Epsom salt soaks. Chisum is a BIG horse, and if you're the least bit intimidated by his size, he'll use it to his advantage. I have a great story to share when we bought him in January, but I'll start another thread.

    Anyway, we were able to groom both horses and put Chisum on the walker for a few minutes. And then the stable owner's daughter came out. She means well, but she doesn't think and she's very distracting. She makes Chisum nervous, so Bob took him over to the trailer. We haven't hauled horses before and the first time we tried to load a while back was a fiasco. Anyway, I looked up from the hoof I was picking, and Bob had loaded Chisum - holy cow! We have a slant combo trailer. Bob was able to back the boy out w/o any problems, which was a first. He did it again with the same results and I was stoked! Then we put my boy in up front (800lbs vs 1200lbs), Chisum in next to him and closed the door. Almost too good to be true! Just to be sure we could do it, we took them for a drive around a very long block - and they SURVIVED! This was a huge step for us and it opens up all kinds of opportunities.

    It was a great day. I'm excited about being a member of such a friendly and knowledgable forum.

    Thanks, y'all !!

    It is nice, isn't it? And yes, he did Unfortunately I didn't get to go because I was working that day, but I heard that it was really neat! And I absolutely agree with you there...I'm not big into NH but Buck's welcome to work with my horses any time!
