Just put "Horsekeeping on Small Acreage" on my "next books to buy" list! How funny!
I like the forum very much for opinions from various posters on issues which I want or need just that..."How many people find x, y, z product useful?"...
I also like the forum for two other things...1) When I've googled something but haven't enough experience to understand the answer I find on Google;
2) When I just want to discuss a situation that occurred with other horsey-folk, since I know very few in "real life".
And I also really like just READING LOTS OF POSTS, & often don't even need to post to learn a ton here! In fact, I think that is how I've learned the MOST since returning to horses, other than in a few GREAT BOOKS I've found!
