I know Texas is a big state but I thought it would be nice to have a thread so Texas folk can communicate and get to know each other.

This can be a place of just getting to know each other, discuss our horses, share ideas, or knowledge, keep each other informed on events, functions, sales, news, etc.

What do ya think? Check in and let's begin!

I am in Tarrant County and we have just a hair under 5 acres. I have a 10 year old Mustang gelding and a 16 year old Paint mare (she's a solid Paint though). I have 2 boys and a husband, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 mice, and a hermit crab. LOL! We hope to have chickens by next spring. This is our first time owning horses and we are loving it.

And it is raining here! We need it but it did put a damper on my plan to work with my gelding tonight. That's ok....the rain is more important! :)

I'm near Austin in HAYS county. I have 2 horses. Misty and Ollie. Misty is an App and Ollie is a Paint. I don't get to ride as often as I like so I spend my time at work oogling over everyone else's horses and stories :)
Nice to meet ya'll! Howdy!

Houston is home sweet home for me, but I'm currently living on the complete other side of Texas right now in El Paso. After El Paso I'm either moving back to Houston or to Austin since I LOVE it there.

No horses of my own, but I am leasing a lovely QH and hope to own in the hopefully not too terribly distant future once I get more experience under my belt.

I'm thinking about keeping a list of user names and either the county they live in, or the "area" of Tx .. like Hill Country, Panhandle, Gulf coast, etc. What do ya'll think? It might be fun as the list grows to see where everyone is located and who is near whom ... ?

Does it count if we're displaced Texans? I'm Texan, but been living in other parts of the country for the last 10 years. From Houston, but I also lived in Austin and College Station (yes, both times for school, and I just root for whoever has the ball...my team always wins that game). I miss being home, but I do NOT miss the sweltering summer heat! Up in New England last week it felt just like I was back in Houston! Heat index = 100, dewpoint = 73. Had to roust myself out of bed extra early every morning to go ride Huey before it got too stinkin' hot, and he was getting a shower after every ride, too.

I have left Texas a few times and lived overseas.
There is no where else I would live in the USA except Texas.
I also would not live north of the Mason Dixon line.
People always find that funny that a liberal like me and a Jew would say that.
I like the weather the people the southern manners just not the politics. LOL Shalom

Ha .. dba .. I've always used the "Mason Dixon" line thing too ... people always take that wrong. You're allowed to be a *cough cough* LIBERAL and a jew and love the south!

ThursdayNext .. displaced Texans are definitely allowed. I guess I'll have a "currently living in:" column in my list.. *smile*

If you guys don't mind, I'll monitor this thread. Mrs. Face is a native Texan, being raised in San Antonio and Houston, and I lived in Texas for many years in Houston/Sugarland, Kingsville, Eagle Pass, and Ft. Stockton, while in the oil business. Although "home" to me is Southwest Missouri, Texas will always be my second home.

db, now you have me picturing you as Gene Wilder in "The Frisco Kid"...:rofl:
