RE: Ian destruction

I agree prayers for all. I don't know if it will make you feel better but I have friends from Indiana who had booked a vacation for Indian Shores for this week. He was sure they would have to cancel, but they said to come on everything was fine. Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers were our favorite place to vacation before getting a motor home. So sad to see it all destroyed.

RE: Been a long time

Prayers for quick healing and so sorry for the bad luck. Hopefully it's all behind you. I bet the dogs are so happy you're home. Glad you have good friends to help you get moved. So good to hear from you. Good luck with the move and let us know where you land. I agree with Scottiemom, wouldn't know you had a stroke. So happy they caught the skunk.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Happy National Dog Day!!! I have 5 dogs that pretty much run the place around here. I'm blessed to live on a small farm with horses and a few cats. My "littles" travel with us as we trail ride all over the country. The 3 big dogs stay home and help my grown kids who live down the road take care of the place. I miss Richard and his beautiful stories, always enjoyed them over my coffee. RIAH I sure hope the cat comes home. Happy Dog Day!!!

RE: Class C RV model recommendations

Good Luck finding all that in a small one. If you decide to go with gas and a little longer we have a Forester 3051S that checks most of your boxes. The seats swivel but not sure it's worth it. Good Luck, at one time I wanted diesel but didn't want 36' or Mercedes. Also having a diesel truck and repair bills to go with it, we are happy with gas. Happy hunting, I think that's half the fun. We love our floorplan.

RE: renting a 5er tow vehicle

We have rented from Enterprise Truck rental and got a gooseneck ball. The kind used on most horse trailers not campers. Maybe try one of the car rental places where you rent from the owner. I can't think of the name we used them in Bryce Canyon.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

So glad this thread is still going and see a few posting. We went to Shawnee, OK and took 2 horses to sell the end of May. We went to the same sale last year, prices and people purchasing has sure changed in a year. The gas prices have finally hit the horse market. We sold ours pretty good but the gas bill didn't help. My husband wanted a new horse and as a friend told me. "If you haven't found your forever horse at our age, you better start looking". He did finally find something he likes, not exactly what he wanted but I'm hoping he's happy. It's been too hot to trail ride and we don't have any trips planned till fall. Martyn if you need a stopping place on the way North, drop me a message may be able to help you out. I have a house & barn next door, sitting empty because I don't want any renters. No RV hook up but peaceful and quiet. ETA: Scottiemom I sure hope you feel better. My husband came home sick yesterday, I gave him an at home test and he tested positive. We have both been vaxed. I guess it's a good thing I have 2 houses & barns, I will be hiding from him the next few days. It will not be a fun 4th around here.

RE: Dude ranch RV parks?

We usually take our horses with us when we can. Most parks & places we go don't rent horses. This is not a Dude Ranch but you can camp and rent horses. https://www.rattlesnakesaloon.net/ in Alabama. We did drive the motor home to Bryce Canyon and rent horses. I highly recommend Ruby's Campground (I believe they rent horses) but we used http://www.mechamoutfitters.com/ None of these are Dude Ranch Experiences but great places to ride. Also whoever said horses are expensive, very true. Much cheaper to trail ride and camp than show. When fussing about the price always remember. Good horses aren't cheap and cheap horses aren't good. Takes a good horse for some of these trails. I will be following this thread, and we will take our own horses. Thank you.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I sure miss this thread, I used to read it every morning when I was working. I also hate the cold. Be thankful you all don't have 6 horses and 5 dogs to take care of in the cold. I really understand why older people move to FL & AZ. Even my northern cold loving husband is starting to hate it as he get older. We do have a reservation to head to N FL in February with 2 of the horses & 2 dogs for a couple of weeks. Sure hope all goes well and we get to make the trip. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Such a sad time to check in and read. Dale so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, wishing you safe travels. So very sorry to hear about Richard. I sure miss his daily posts and beautiful writing, seems like such a kind man. I survived trail riding in Bryce Canyon and the ride there & back, I still hate heights. Getting ready to go to TN and ride our own horses. I have a new one, I sure hope he does good, he's a little spooky. Safe travels to all. ETA: Prayers for Richard & Sue. I can't believe I left that off.

RE: Best UTV for trails

I have a Kawasaki Teryx it's a 2 seater with a dump bed. I really like it for trails and using around the farm. I have owned it since 2014, it's been a great little machine. My husband had a CanAm 1000, I hated it, (couldn't see out and scary fast) he sold it. My son has a CanAm 1000 4 seater he likes it, his wife hates it. I would think a Teryx would be easier to haul, not as wide as other models. IMO the CanAm's feel like they might rear up, and I ride horses so I know that feeling.

RE: How many states has your dog been too?

This really made me have to think. I have a toy aussie who is only 8 months old and she has been to 7 states, going to 8th next week. Also have a chihuahua 6 who has been to at least 17. They love to go. I know there is no real toy Australian shepherd breed but I did have DNA run. She is 50% miniature American Shepherd and 25% Yorkshire terrier & 25% Chihuahua. She is a doll and I also have her extra large twin which is part great Pyrenees & Rottweiler. She has to stay home and guard the farm she did go to 7 states as a puppy.
