New to Horses and Forum in Ohio

Two weeks ago we went to a local horse rescue to see about adoption. On the way, I explained to my crew that while I like any animal that dosent slither, I am just NOT a horse person and the bulk of any responsibility towards a new horse would be theirs. Two days later, our two rescues came home and can you guess just whose been out with the horses every possible free minute ;)

I never "got" horse people...horses were handsome animals but...it's not like you could cuddle or hug them like a cat or dog....wow was I wrong on that one. Not sure I will ever have the desire to ride but for right now, teaching these two to trust again, to provide them a safe, loving home and getting their health back is enough. I can't wait to go outside and see Thor and Venus first thing every morning. Thor follows me around the field and is always agreeable when I want to nuzzle against his neck and scratch his back for him.

Ladysun, welcome to the forum and to the world of equine addiction!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
