I was just told about this board and wanted to say hi to everyone. Anyone here from Texas? I'm from Liberty. Just looking for new friends/horse people to chat with.

Hi... I just found the board about a week ago.. I don't live to far from you, in the Kingwood, Porter area. Just started raising chickens, about 4 months ago. Not really sure what I'm doing, so if there is any help out there... Let me hear from you...

Hey SeaJ! Fancy running into you here. Small world, huh? LOL! Looks like you've been busy adding to your web page since I checked it out last. It's good to see you here, and I think there are several folks from near our neck of the woods who stop by from time to time. Later....:)

I grew up in Nederland just south of Beaumont. We now live in Colorado. A lot less bugs and humidity! Still have family in Nederland and in Jasper.

Hi SeaJ,
I'm the resident old guy from Mn - every board needs one of us (well, one of the old guys - don't want to wake anybody up - bwahahahaha :)

BTW, do you know Mystic? She's in Pa and nobody likes horses more - when she moved a couple years back i think she took like 7 horses down there :)

Dear Mr Carp, I just added your site to my favs list so I can go back later when I have more time to read your stories. Love a good country story!

kraig WY Great, more horse people    Posted 01-08-2003 at 07:32:00       [Reply]  [Send Email]

I think we're in the minority. Don't know about the longhorns though. I tried them but they're like deer when it comes to fences. Welcome to the site.

Hello SeaJ, welcome to the board!
I am a horsey person. Originallly from BC Canada, and soon to relocate to Colorado. I have a few friends in Texas, some from this board, and some that used to work for the same truck manufacturing company that I did in BC. We had international accouts, and I was the credit coordinator, so I got to talk a lot of people throughout North America. I hope you enjoy the friendly banter that goes on around here, and know when to duck when the b/s flies!
Oh ya......and for the record, be very, very careful about the kind of jokes you might post! :)
Stay away from molasses. Heehe

Hello there SeaJ, and welcome.

I'm not from Texas, but was stationed with the Army at Fort Hood for about 4 years and loved most everything about it (except for the hot hot and dry summers!). Couldn't get my favorite garden stuff to grow, so I came back to Maryland.

Never owned a horse (yet), but we have a mule and a beat-up old donkey we like a lot. Not sure they'd let me get a horse...they're pretty jealous.

Anyway, glad you're here. Hope ya stay awhile.

Hi Tom,

Nice to meet ya. So you have a mule?? I want one. And a donkey. they are so cute. I love to hear them . lol. But my horse won't let me have one. He has a problem with both. He's too funny on trial rides when there are any around. He don't want any behind him or he starts acting up, I guess he thing he will get bit. And if I try to pass one on him he gets beside it and gives it a look and takes off. lol.
Anyway,its nice to find some country people to chat with. And I used to be a foofoo city girl. lol. I always said I would never live in the country but here I am. And I just love it. Maybe because I am animal crazy. But I do like the woods. And I wanted to live at the beach. Maybe I should just get a vacation home at the beach. =0)
