Enjoy the journey.
I agree that a rescue or therapudic facility would be great hands on time and they would appreciate the help.

I live in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. If you happen to know of any rescue centers around here let me know! I'm still looking!

When/ if you buy a horse in the future, the two most important things to look at (cost wise) are the feet and the diet. Just those two items make the difference between a very low maintenance horse and one that will make your farrier, feed store, and vet rich.
