New and Clueless!

Hello All,
I'm LeeAnn and my family and I live in Ohio. I have 5 kids, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Hoping to have a few chickens soon, maybe 3-4 goats and most of all.....2 horses.

We just moved to our farm house about 3 years ago, and have been remodeling. Not totally done but ready for some farm animals! I have loved horses ever since I can remember. I have no idea about care, training, or I have alot to learn. LOL

A friend of mine is giong to teach me about care and everything with her horses, and I am trying to find a rescue near me to volunteer at as well.
This is all so overwhelming and intimidating but I am anxious to learn and prepare my barn for horses.

If you have any suggestions for a newbie please, I'm all ears. Thanks!

working at the rescue will be a great experience and you can learn from the people there. once you have some experience I am sure they will help you pick a suitable horse from their rescues.
having a friend teach you all she knows is a great idea and then she will be able to help you when you get a horse home too.
I would love to live in a house on its own land so I am quite jealous.
good luck with eveything.


i am fed up with the speed and the greed of the world around me but i have not found nor can i offer a cure

Welcome to the forum, any questions ask away as the majority of people here are incredibly helpful and full of knowledge.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

I am right there with you! And you're right, it is very intimidating. But it's a fun adventure. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only novice here
