I am actually just starting back into horses after about a 15-year hiatus, but I grew up with them and worked with them for many years until a financially devastating divorce forced me to give it all up when my child was young. Now he is grown and out on his own, and a life-changing injury last summer convinced me it was time to get on with my life again. I feel a bit "out of the loop" now, but hopefully joining this forum will help get me back up to speed.

Sorry you've had to go though all you did!
Glad you are able to have horses again now. The forum is a really great source for all kinds of information from very nice people.
You'll like it here!

So how did your one's gelding go today, A-okay?
Looking forward to seeing pics of them.

The gelding didn't happen- it was too cold and wet- we've rescheduled for next Wed. afternoon. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. BTW I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and sub-arachnoid hemorrhage last August- thanks to modern technology and a brilliant surgeon I am 100% fine now, but have a new appreciation for life and am determined to make the most of it! Hence the two new horses! I'm also negotiating to buy the 14 acres they are now living on.

Wow, that must have been scary! Can't wait to see them! and the land!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I will post pics as soon as I can. I'm very excited about the possibility of buying this place- it's very quiet and lovely. Today I separated the field in two with electric fencing so the back half can grow in. It's an old pasture that hasn't been used in a few years so the old dry, dead grass is covering up the new stuff, and there are big clumps of brambles growing in some areas. Tomorrow I'm going to mow the whole thing down and overseed it. The horses were not happy about the electric fence- they both got zapped which I guess is good, so they'll stay away from it now.

Hi KatieQ. Welcome to the forum. Your plans sound very exciting. 2 horses and 14 acres sounds perfect!

That sounds really nice! Is there a home on the land?
You'll have to let us know how it works out for you.

My boys

Here are pics of my two boys- sorry about the different sizes but these are all I've got right now. Banjo is nearly 2 years old, and the little one Strider who is my husband's is now 8 months (pictures were taken several months ago) I haven't got any more recent ones because this is a new computer and I don't have my camera software on it yet. They look much the same only hairier right now, and while Banjo looks half asleep in the picture he usually looks much more awake than that! Also his mane is about 8 inches longer now!
