Welcome! I am brand new as well. I am also a first time horse owner. My husband jokes it's my midlife crisis..........I don't think so however. Been wanting one for the last 35 years;). I too have spent the last year reading everything I could get my hands on about horses, and doing tons of research before purchasing my horse Vin. I followed MOST of the first horse rules, he's older, a gelding, well trained and most definitely a love bug! Good luck to you and your family on your move. It sounds wonderful!
