Hi, I am Alex, I am a 34 year old (how did that happen?) female who is English but lived in America for 9 years now.
I said my horse stuff in the thread I posted, so other than that my new hubby (just married 3 months ago) and I are foster parents to 5 teenage boys aged 16-20. They can be a little wild sometimes so I cannot wait for Tues when school and college starts up so I can get some time to myself and Lucas (5 yr old OTTB gelding) to get some more serious riding time in. It is just impossible to try to ride with the boys around, someone always argues, or someone finds something to fling around and spook him while I ride past.
I just finished a summer work program supervising 'my' kids and 8 other kids at my horse barn, so after 6 weeks of working there, wouldn't you think they would be better around horses and learn not to run up behind them? Apparently not.
