Fortunately for me I live and keep my horses on the farm that I was born and raised on. My oldest horse was my number one trail horse when he was younger he is now 31. Then I have two TWH who are my trail horses now, and they make super pleasure horses.
Do you have any pets?
2 barn cats and two house cats, all abandoned and rescured
I am afraid I really don't know of any such places - but the site above would be a great place to stop, although I am not sure if they allow campers - they do have the largest and prettiest trails around here - Good Luck!
Well right now, you are the lucky one, you did not waste your time and money busting your butt to get down here to get out of the cold...it is nasty cold and wet right now. We have had a week of colder than usual for down here, frost, etc. It will freeze tonight for sure and probably tomorrow as well. We had a beautiful day yesterday and wham, it started raining last night and basically has not quit since. They say that this is a record breaker for the length of time it has stayed so cold and the temps. Nights the temps are getting down into the 20's in a lot of place north of here. The farmers have been trying to keep the frost away from the crops but they are fighting a losing battle with no reprieve during the day light hours. Stay warm,
Well, I think you made the right decision by leaving the wintery mess. High winds and cold weather has made riding this winter less than appealing. I went on strike and kept the horse moving by having all the barn people have a go on him. I have had to end my strike as he made it clear that he was glad to see me one day so over I go if only to offer an apple and a run in the arena. The shortest day of sunshine is past and we can go forward. I wonder if you are in the area of Florida that is in the cold weather. We have seen pics on the neww where the orange and some other fruit crops could be compromised. Talk at you soon. Gail.
Hey Eileen! Our group of the over 60's has not been active for a long time. I am still kicking around and actually got confirmation of being old when I got the first pension cheques this week. What are you up to and when do you leave for Florida-the other half of your charmed life. Thought I should check in and see if you will have access to email when you are away for the winter. Happy trails . Gail and Pekoe.
Hello Eileen, you must come ride with us this winter. I belong to the SFTRs club out of Miami and they camp at Belle Meade Thanksgiving and I plan to go this year with them. We have a 2700 acre conservation area/horse park out our back door where we spend endless hours riding. I have an extra horse for you. Also every January we do a New Year's ride/BBQ to make all aware of this park, last year had 45 riders and fed 75 and it is all free. Date next year is Sun. 1/10/10. Keep in touch. Lark
WoW! Can I ever relate to flies ie horse's face flies. I have found I have to use bug spray every time I ride. You are right about the mental cruelty part of it. He used to ride but ran out of money for the boarding so we just have the 1 now that is mine. That would be the reason I am still working. Working on the Freedom 85 plan. Talk at you soon! Gail.
