hello there Kymarose! Welcome to the forum.
I too have noticed that several on here appear to be youngsters, but as you said, we can always learn from the young. (i just turned 50 this past week) lol
I grew up with horses, but never "owned" one of my own, that I had to be the "sole support" of. My folks did all the important care of ours, I just rode them. So consequently, I am now learning to care for them.
We just use plain straw for our bedding and ours seem to like it. It is easy to clean up, just take a manure fork and pick up what needs cleaned, and add a little more.
It is daunting, to suddenly be in charge of another life. Grandson and/or his horse. On several occasions we've had our grown children move back home for awhile, and now we have my hubby's elderly mother (86) living with us. So I understand how you feel. Probably overwhelmed!!!!
Just keep posting your questions, and someone here will eventually answer every question that you may have.
Remember, the only dumb question is the one that ISN'T asked!!!
