Good afternoon. Thanks DBA, kinds wish you knew me, besides on here! lol
Let's see, what can I tell you. I'm 50 yr old nurse, been married to same man 30 yrs, 2 children, 2 grandchildren, all holding jobs, no drugs, just recreational alcohol.....if alcohol can be recreatinal..... maybe social drink? It's not a problem, if that helps. My family has had horses before I was born. I had a 18 yr hiatus without a horse, because for some reason I married a man who hates horses. But, have realize, he was more jealous of the time I spent with my horses, an not him. He's over it now. Good thing. I have 2 mares, 5 yr old QH, had her for a little over a year, and a 17 yr old (or so they told me) paint mare, I've had for less than 6 months. She was given to me by a friend of a friend, for pasture buddy to my horse. Now they are inseperateable. Which may cause a problem when I can start riding my mare again. But, I have started taking her out, and leading her with me when I go walking, to seperate them for a bit, good for her, and real good for me. I've lost 65 lbs since the first of the year, would like to loose another 10-15, I'm just kinda stuck where I am, but I'll start loosing again soon. Uh...... what else... Oh, have 19.24 acres, all in grass, except where our house/yard is. DH is going to fence off an area around his shop so he can go in and out without having to worry about horses getting out.
Does that help you know me? lol I can get letters of recommendation from my bosses. I do ride with one of the female docs where I work. And, she has offered to let me use one of her geldings for as long as I want, but he's over 20 yrs old, been a pasture puff for too long, it may do more harm than good, getting him back into shape.
