I won't trade you on the horses though...like me if my horse just gets a wiff of grain he gains weight. 3oz of ration balancer daily and free choice first cut hay is all my crew needs to be complete butterballs.
I envy a huge garden and small orchard! We are in the process of adding a green house to our Mini Horse barn. I have yet to be successful in keeping food good using a root cellar of sorts, so our garden has only done us good for a few short months. We would be lost without the goats milk & the chickens though. Husband was having a terrible time keeping weight on until he started to make 3/4 of a gallon of raw goats milk at 6 eggs a part of his every day routine.
Tell ya all what, I will gladly give away some metabolism if it means that I can get through an hour without having to stop & stuff my face with something to keep from fainting. Or if it means that my husband will stop single handedly clearing out 9x13 pans of lasagna, you know, to wash down the goat milk and half dozen eggs
This is all very off topic, sorry OP!
