OK I've done some checking around. Most folks tell me they're horses are not up to such a trip. I am also being told to look for a Halflinger, Mustang, or Stout Morgan to make the trip. I have looked into watering holes and feed along the way. There are lots of folks that allow feeding and watering at there farms just to see someone make the trip. Most folks act like this is unheard of these days. Someone had ask about me buying the horse, I've been giving this a lot of thought. There is a local girl who would love to be able to take care of a horse that she could ride when ever she felt like it. She is graduating from college soon, majoring in horse breeding, I forget the techical term. Anyway I have a place to keep a horse or two and barn space.
