    Here's a couple of pix of our boys. My husband has a thing about cutting off legs and heads, tho. Quasim really does have nice sturdy Morgan legs. Although a more petite horse, Quasim rules the pasture. He's a little over 15hh, I think, and Chisum is about 16.2hh.

    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!
    The How Come? Goes like this.

    Horse lives 45 miles from me .. and I don't have a trailer.
    Work all week, have property we are trying to get ready for her .. so lacking time ..

    Can't wait 'til we can load her and DH's horse (that he doesn't have yet) into a trailer and go ride!

    Some day .... soon.

    Hello, I am glad you got back into the saddle. I too agree that it is the best physical therapy. For me it is also a relaxer. I can go ride for hours when I get mad and come back just as sweet as can be. Hope to hear from ya.

    Shugar, nothing beats a horse-hug. You are so right about their ability to change you from a raving lunatic to a calm, cool, and relaxed human being. I've had a lot of surgeries and crap like that and all it took to get me back to my old self was a willing horse. Who knew?

    Life is good again ~

    Your horses are gorgeous!!! I am a sucker for a buckskin. No, I haven't been to 7IL. I have wanted to go but we just haven't made it over there. It is a little far for a day ride due to hauling through Houston. Gaaaa!!!! We were going to go stay over one weekend but by the time we added up the day riding fee for 2 horses, the overnight camping spot, the horse pens - it was going to cost a freaking fortune so we didn't go! We ride at Tyrrell almost every week unless someone is ill - that is why we didn't ride today - my cousin had some biopsies done and had stitches and Biscuit jumped on my foot the other day and my foot is a lovely mottled color. Most of our haul out of town rides are Ebenezer.

    45 miles?!! I guess it's safe to assume you're not boarding him, right? Ugh - that's just a little farther than I have to drive to work everyday. We do have to board, but we got lucky with a family-owned stable about 3 miles from us. The owner does absolutely everything for the horses and her fee is incredibly low. I found Quasim when I was looking for a horse to exercise. I had been exercising a saddlebred showhorse, but his mama drove me bat****. Besides, they were located in Willis, and it was a long drive there and back. Her horse was very sweet and mild mannered, but she didn't have a clue. I figured that out when she was trying to put a bit in this poor beast's mouth and kept slamming his front teeth while yelling at him to open. She nearly freaked when I stuck my fingers in his mouth - but he took the bit. There are all kinds ~

    Do you get to visit her every now and then? Does your friend have any trail riding areas? I would get withdrawal so bad if I couldn't see my boys at least every other day ~

    I can see her any time I want .. time and distance has dictated about once every other week fo the last year or so .. it stinks.

    I'm so ready to have her home.

    She does have lovely trails out there by the San Jacinto River, so we do get that when I get out there to ride....
