I have wanted a horse for 20 some odd years...finally got one as of Saturday!!!
I got a purebred Appaloosa mare of 6 years old. She is at least green broke (though I haven't ridden her yet) and is pretty gentle...
I have her under the contract that I must be suitable and ready to care for her properly myself within a months time of getting her otherwise the breeder will take her back. I really don't want to loose my new horse but understand I need a bit of help to keep her. The owner of the boarding stable is the person who will evaluate me on or around July 28th to see if I'm ready...though she doesn't have any time to help me learn anything about my new horse.
So I'm here to ask for help!!!
I'm not concerned with riding yet...but I need to know a lot of the basics of care....I will post another thread about that later...this is just to say hi and about my horse
