Oops, forgot to tell something about myself. I live in northeastern Indiana on a 5 1/2 acre homestead farm. In addition to Arie, my gelding, I have 25 old fashioned breed free-range laying hens. I hope to get a dairy goat or two in the spring. Springtime will also bring my 2nd attempt at an organic garden. A couple of pigs are in the future sometime ,too. I just got remarried and have a large blended family (yours, mine, and ours type of thing) so my horse is for the sake of my sanity. Something about being around him and working with him makes me feel all put back together again. I'll post some pix of us after he gets all sleek and pretty after the weather warms back up.
