    Thank you IdahoRider. :)

    I got a call from a rep from RBER yesterday--she was completing the next step in the adoption and matching process. First is that email I received, second is this personal...

    Alas, we didn't find a match. Several that were in the right direction and one we even test rode, but he proved one *I* could ride but I wouldn't trust putting my kids on except for leadline. I'd...

    :lol: :lol:
    Firefly says, "She talking about me, isn't she?" ;)

    There are no guarantees and no plans...we're just going to look. :) It helps that the founder of Hicaliber (who is the one meeting us today) had a TBI years ago that turned her life upside-down and...

    Our adoption application to Hicaliber has been approved and we're scheduled to visit on Sunday. :) Leaving the trailer at home for this visit...

    I've sent off an email to Hicaliber and submitted an application to Red Bucket Equine. Now I wait to hear back from them. :::raps fingers on table impatiently:::

    Meanwhile, I'm perusing the local...

    Yes, you did, and I thank you for your honesty about him; there are many who would stretch the truth (or omit it) in attempts to just get rid of a horse. He's absolutely adorable and I wish he were a...

    jarrn, I'll reply in more detail (or maybe send a PM) later, but we'd prefer something semi-rideable at a walk or leading the kids around, but are open. The horse does not need to be working sound...

    I looked into TIER back when I was getting my gelding back in 2012, but unfortunately got not reply from the couple of emails I sent. I just moved on at that point, but maybe can look into them again.

    Wondering what you guys think about these--what about a system like this one on Amazon? Or maybe any of these at Costco?

    The game and trail cameras are interesting to us, but they seem pricier...
  12. Thanks UlysMom. That's good to hear. Since it's...

    Thanks UlysMom. That's good to hear. Since it's so close (maybe 15min away max) I have been thinking about arranging a visit, but prrrrrrobably not this week as El Nino is supposed to make his grand...
  13. Seeking feedback on a few Southern California rescues

    Hello all! I wanted to ask you all if anyone had any experience with any of the equine rescue groups listed below. All are 501(c)3, but that we all know is not enough in and of itself. We are looking...

    My husband completely surprised me when we were discussing this the other day. Now, when I first mentioned it last week when a great pony was up on Craigslist (and gone within hours, oh well), his...
  15. Thanks for the input, everyone. :) Regarding...

    Thanks for the input, everyone. :)

    Regarding running a hotwire--the problem with that is there is a long (10', maybe?) gate in the center of the fence that swings out. I assume there is no way to...
  16. Since pictures are worth 1000 words (not 1000...

    Since pictures are worth 1000 words (not 1000 calls, Adele ;) ), I thought I'd come back and share this photo of the property back in April (back when we baby goat Moe there was just 8 weeks old,...
  17. Barn surveillance camera recommendations?

    Yo everyone. My husband and I were horrified to learn tonight that people visiting the nearby baseball field for games have meandered over by our barn and jumped the fence to our private barn...
  18. I know, oh do I know. ;) But the more I think...

    I know, oh do I know. ;) But the more I think about it, the more I really think it should be something small--either another mini or a small pony. I was tempted thinking about him (and a QH with...

    Not doing anything, but I wanted to share an Awwww. Thanks to Jingo-Ace's link, I came across this guy. He's bigger than I think we'd be aiming for and it sounds like he needs more movement than we...

    Well, Merry Christmas to you too, you horrible, horrible people. ;) :lol:

    But you know what? In all seriousness, you all have been a great help guiding me to the realization I'm ready to take a...

    Thanks everyone. Malda, I PMed you back.

    Simple and perhaps silly question: is there a way to know if Firefly misses equine companionship? Would it show in her behaviors somehow?

    (Hi...

    Oh, and because I know this thread is useless without pics:
    Not giving a crap while the boys hang out with her in her stall

    Teaching my then-4yro how to lead a pony

    My oldest adores her

  23. Does my mini need equine companionship, or are our goats enough?

    Oh, Firefly (AKA Firebutt). She is a red-headed mini/pony mare, and EVERY bit the stereotype of all three of those aspects. ;) She is not just alpha mare, she is Supreme Ruler--at least with other...

    This is stupid really, but: I'd frequently heard from COTHers how pleasantly, comfortingly surprised they were to receive condolences (expressed in a card, I think) after calling SP to cancel their...

    Oh my GOSH the cute.

    My mini Firefly would not know what to do with herself in this situation.
