We are talking to Ms. Garza sister about her horse and what she does.

She lives on a 30 acre farm, she helps with kids with disabilities and former military who have PTSD. 

She helps horses that are bad behaving and has an olympic horse to care for.

The kids talk about her past life as an ex-army, what it was like and whether she would join it again.

The farm was owned by a lady name Julie Robert, you can go to the website and take some classes.

Q. Do you miss Texas
A. Well yeah the food, it is very different, like they don't have brisket and Whataburger. But I do miss the family cuz we are so far from Texas.

The horses don't live in a barn, they are in a herd, but they do get aggressive around each other when it comes to food. In the herd the male would be top but when I'm out there they know that I'm in charge, we don't show aggression or yell at them.

There are two different saddles - the western saddle and English saddle. The western saddle is more heavier than the English saddle that is the like the difference.

In our 24 Hour World Tour we are on our first mystery call. We narrowed it down to Asia and Australia just on knowing that they are 13 hours ahead of us! We haven't even started the call yet but are slowly getting closer to the answer just by using how many hours ahead of other continents.
For our second mystery call we are not going to be able to know the time they are in.
We noticed that they had mask on due to the Corona Virus. Right of the bat we asked them if they are from Japan and they are not.The second question we asked is "if they live in the eastern hemisphere".The second question we asked is if they were from tiyan based of their eyes and skin, and they are.They still needed to guess were we are from.They asked us if we are from Africa, but we are not .They also asked us if we are from Mexico.We still needed to find out there city so we ask them if their city starts with certain letters.We figured out that their city starts with a "K".They finally figured out we are from the united states!We guessed if there city was Kaohsiung and we were correct!They still needed to guess our state but it wasn't long till they found out.We HAD to comment on there skin and skin tone and how it was so clear!They are so PRETTY!!!!!Now that we knew each others location we got to know more about their culture!We taught them Tik Tok dances and they asked us questions they wanted to know.One of those question was what are different  celebrations do we celebrate, we listed a few such aThanksgiving and Easter. They also asked us if we liked any sports and we responded with football, basketball and volleyball.Once they got to know us better they performed for us an amazing song by Bruno Mars!We really loved their voices and instruments!Next another group went on the screen to tell us more about them. They had a presentation ready for us. The first slide was about popular snacks one of them was very known here as Boba Tea . They then started teaching us a little of their language. They gave us their Social Medias to connect with them. We then agreed to email each others social medias. Allow me just to say they are GORGEOUS !!!!! Another group came into the screen ,we first introduced our selfs to them, as one should.They told us a little about traditions in tiyan. we shared many laughs and taught them how we play "Rock, Paper, Shoot!".  They knew a lot of our slang terms in the united states. we asked them if they liked sports and they said Basketball and swimming.Our follow up question to that was are there any people they looked up to they said, Kobe Bryant <3. So at this point it was my turn to go talk to them . While we were talking Emanuel, one of our fellow peers thought a girl was cute. So me being a good friend told Jenny (the  cute girl) that he thought she was cute, and she gave a heart to him and now are friends on social media. They asked us if we play Fortnite and only a couple girls answered yes.We took a picture with them to save the memory!

In our 24 hour world tour experience we are now with our 17 call. We are with fire fighter Marcel. Marcel learned more english coming back and forth from Germany to the United States. In Germany you are allowed to drive at the age of 17 but, you first have to drive with a parent for a year and by the age of 18 you are able to drive alone. Marcel lives in south west of Germany and about 3 to 4 hours from France. One thing that Marcel misses from the United States is the trucks and cars. In Germany they drive small cars such as Mercedes, were as he likes big trucks. If he had a chance to live in the United States he would want to live Texas. Some of his favorite food places here in Texas is Texas Roadhouse, and Whataburger. Marcel actually didn't go to college and just started working right after highschool. Marcel's favorite city in Texas is San Antonio because of the Alamo, and river walk.
