Skip to comments.The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread SIX
Posted on 06/01/2005 7:34:38 AM PDT by HairOfTheDog
This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.
I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts look for it there and wake the thread up!
I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in . There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news . Legislation that might affect horse owners.
So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.

New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
But that got me thinking The who's who page is now out of date with all these new babies here now... Those of you who have new babies... please post a picture, either an earlier one or a current one, so we can add them to the page and keep everyone straight!
Ping to the new thread!
I'm here! I'm here!!
Thank you, thank you!
I need to start a new hobbit hole too... but they're harder.
It's a link-fest over there, that's why!
I've got horses fed and put out to pasture... As soon as the sun dries it out a little, I think I'll continue mowing today... whether Bay thinks it's a crap idea or not :~D
I put up a threadlogo22.jpg that we can use for now, if you want to go ahead and post the thread.
Thanks hon ;~D
It was tough just picking one...
OK - if everyone is going to be off somewhere and not chatting... I might as well go clean stalls.
Thanks for the picture -- love it. I will have more here pretty soon.
Got to take the Chevvy pickup into town to get the air conditioning fixed.
I'm still here lurkin.' Thanks you all!!
Just got in for lunch. I've been out on Harley. We trailed for a couple of hours, then did about 20 minutes in he arena.
I ventured out a little ways on to the ranch I rode at Mon. There is a break in his fence line back in the woods where I Ride, that's where I went in at. He knows about the break, but I think he's going to leave it for awhile. I hope. I'd like to ride back there, but the only other way to get there would be thur Beths property, and I don't really want to do that. It would mean either calling her every time, so she could move her horses, or going thru them which I don't want to do. As long as this fence is down, I can go anytime.
If he leaves it open, great... otherwise, maybe he'll put in some kind of handle gate or something!
He doesn't have stock in there?
If he ever talks about fixing it, Mack told me to tell him, we'd put up an Ark. Gate, with a pad lock for him.
Actually yes he has cattle in there. It is a cattle ranch. There is lots of cross fencing tho, so I don't think they can get up there. To get to the starting point of the ride Mon. we had to go thru 2 gates. During the ride I'll bet we went thru a dozen. This place is huge. It's hard to believe one man owns it all.
Wow.... I really hope I can come there one day and ride it with you!
The only wide open spaces we have here are tall timber... And those lands are usually owned by companies like Weyerhauser... And if no one has made a trail through it, you can't get through it, the undergrowth is too thick.
Luckily, there is a lot of it still, though.
Wow, a new thread! Cool.
Yup. Still has that new thread smell. ;~D
Well, I'm off to try to mow... if it's too wet still, I'll be back. If not.... I'll still be back later!
