Newbie here. Been enjoying ya'll's conversations and learning some new tricks to try. My husband and I hail from eastern Oklahoma, where we have a (very) small equine operation. We also do a little animal rescue/rehoming...mostly we spend time trying to stay ahead of our 49 acres and our animals, while carrying on full-time jobs in town. If there's any time left over, I do competitive trail riding with our Ay-rab horses. We have really good intentions (and you know what they say about those) about starting a vegetable garden, remodeling the 40-year-old farm house, putting in a permanent arena and building a decent barn, so the topics I've seen here are quite timely for us. Especially the topics relating to skunks--you know you've got a bad skunk problem when your husband starts naming them. (He's been trying to get rid of "Bill," who lives in the rocks behind the house, for over a year.)

Well, just thought it was time to say hello. Happy trails!

Hi SB. Used to take my sons Boy Scout troop conoeing on the Illinois river thru the Cookson Hills many years ago. Mighty pretty.

Hi Jim,
That's our neck of the woods, alright. Lots and lots of canoes now. We used to live right on the river, but bought the horses a farm three years ago so now we're closer to the lake. So far, we're mostly rock farmers. :)

Speaking of the Ozarks, what part of MO are you from?

Saddlebum....Hey you are very close!    Posted 06-26-2002 at 21:10:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
We're about 30 minutes west of the border, near Lake Tenkiller. Our Miniature Schnauzer came from Van Buren--does that count? *g* Small world!
