While I have someone at the barn to help with all these things, I kinda wanted to educate myself a little more before my mare arrives. If my friend wasn't at the barn, I don't think my dream of being a horse's human would ever be realized. There is so much to learn/know that I couldn't possibly do this all by myself the first go 'round!
So. What I'd like to know from each of you are things (material and knowledge) that you absolutely need for every day life with your horse(s). I realize some of this information will be breed and owner specific but it will help me (I hope!)
So far, things that throw me are the lingo. Proper terminology for a horse's anatomy. Things to look out for - injury/illness/etc. As a mom and dog/cat owner (and former dog rescuer), I think I can probably tell if something is wrong with my horse, but not sure if I'll be able to tell WHAT is wrong!
Thank you in advance... I have got to stop getting on here or I'll never be able to pay to keep her!!!
