Hi! Welcome to the forum! You should be able to find alot of really good advice here.

Spyer, I love it. Definitely giggled at that one.

I can honestly say I have NO idea about the carrots. I just recently saw the carrot bandit for the first time. People can steal carrots from you too. HOW in the world do you already have THREE?! I have my one little carrot because I can steal one and then someone steals it back. So, I'm looking forward to finding out something about the carrots too.

Haha, very funny Spyder
Drumrunner, you know the "carrot locator"? It will tell you what page a carrot is hidden on, if you're fast enough, run to that page and you'll see a thing that says "catch a carrot" then click on that!

Well, I don't actually own a horse, but I am able to ride our neighbor's horse whenever I want! I just started riding him on the 16th, and it's been an adventure! He's wonderful to ride, but needs a bit of ground work. I'm working on finding someone who will help me train him in his ground work!

That sounds great. There are just a ton of threads here about groundwork. You can learn a lot, however, if you have very little hands on experience doing this, learning it from a forum or a book or a video alone is tough. So much more effective to have someone show you. If you were nearby I would happily share my limited knowledge. Hope you can find a good helper.
