Welcome, I am also new to this site, ownership, & have my horses at home. I am reading a book called "Keeping a horse the natural way", by Jo Bird, so far very helpful, has side notes by Pat Parelli. I have also found Googleing any of your questions helps, tons of sites and have found Horse folks are always beyond willing to help. You can actually just search this site for most of your questions, I've rarely had to start new threads. Also if you have a great feed store they are always helpfull with nutrition, mine is.
