New from Texas

Hello forum!
I just joined from southeast Texas. My family has a ranch, and my dad is a catfish farmer. We have 10 wild mustangs roaming the ranch, and I have one QH mare that I ride. Horses have always been a part of me, and when I get wrapped up in my job and can't ride as much as I want to, it really takes away from my mental health!
Looking forward to making new friends!

Welcome from another Texan, Kristin. This is an awesome place to hang out.

If you ever decide to cull your mustang herd, let me know. I love them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the warm welcome! I currently live in Beaumont, I'm trying to go to college down here. But my dad's ranch is in Newton, which is by Jasper, and that's where all the horses are. My finest mustang had a colt last May, he is going to be big for his breed. He is red with white socks and a white blaze. I am considering giving him to a VERY NICE home free of charge. I need to get him away from the stallion as soon as possible.

I live south of Houston. I wish I had room for your mustang!

I have some friends from Sugar Land, its south of Houston. Do you ever take your horse to the beach? I LOVE riding on the beach. Have to be careful, though.

So why don't you just remove the stallion or the parts responsible for making him a stallion?

Its a wild mustang herd. He takes care of the mares. He is worse than a guard dog. I wouldn't want to remove him. If I put him in another pasture, he would kill himself and the fence trying to get back to his herd. Here is a photo of the mustang mare and her colt that I'm willing to give away. And another photo of the appaloosa stallion, his sire. The baby is SO much bigger now, I just don't have a recent picture. I call him Socks.
