Smile Hello, new here

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and wanted to introduce my self. I'm from SC and recently got a new little filly. I grew up with horses and have been dieing for years now to get another one. My hubby got me a beautiful little sorrel baby (3mo old), Quarter horse. Probably not the best choice for getting back into it, but it'll all come back to me in time.

It amazes me how much things have changed over the years. I have been reading about keeping them barefoot & have decided thats what I want to do. I also came across the bitless bridle & thinks thats pretty neat to. Needless to say I have a lot of brushing up to do. Hoping that you guys can help me with that. lol

It just dawned on me that my screen name sounds harsh. Thought I should explain.lol That's my filly's name. (not my choice) The breeder named her that. She said since she was born she would twitch her flanks and/or withers every time they touched her. She still does when I touch her. Not sure why.
