    [​IMG]To the left and right of HWY 95 that you are on if you're looking at this picture, there are stores now, not shown in this pictures Dollar General, a small market, Family Dollar. Where the trees are there are lots of houses, with small yards, 1/4 acre or smaller. To the left a couple miles there is a high school. HWY 50 is crossing 95 which you are on, 50 is crossing just the other side of the Casino sigh. The picture with the Christmas Tree was taken about where the car who's light you can see, but on the other side of the street. The Carson River is high in the photo this side of the hills. Lake Lohontan is to your left of 95 south of 50.

    You are just returning from Fernley between where you are and Fernley, about 20 miles, are valleys and basins extending east and west empty save a house or two can be seen. There will be a band of Mustangs of about 13 with two little ones, to the left heading back to Fernley.

    When I take a picture, I try not to show cars, houses or people. The best looking, riding or photos are where there's no crowd.

    [​IMG]T[​IMG]here are some good size working ranches around. Where there are working ranches there are cowboys who spend the day in the saddle. Where there are are cowboys there are Rodeos!

    Thanks for sharing pictures of where you live. You can see for miles and miles! There is very little Federal land in Texas. Texas was it's own country when it joined the United States, thus the majority of land is privately owned.

    Strider has some swelling and tenderness front right cannon area. Been taking it easy on the horse that is.

    I'm thinking Liniment.

    I'm thinking you're right. Be sure to wear a glove when you apply it or else you will have a lifetime supply of anti-arthritis medicine in your hand!

    Quote: Texas was it's own country when it joined the United States, thus the majority of land is privately owned.

    I know a bit, I've read a lot about the history of Texas. upload_2017-2-20_17-35-35.png I find some things particularly interesting.

    Lot of good things come from Texas, cause there's a lota good thing in Texas.

    Spurs:I asked to see some spurs, Hoviv just brought over a this new pair.

    Here's what the girls told/taught me: Spurs are an important tool for teaching.
    There are Please, You better and you should have.

    You want the horse to move his back side Laterally.

    1.Please: Without the use of the spur you nudge.
    2.You'd better: Touch with the spur.
    3.You should have: Roll the spur on the side.

    Won't be used to go forward.

    This is new to me.
