Hello, to everyone. I am a new member since sunday and have been back everyday since. I am a life long horse lover and a first time owner. I have two kids a 7y/o boy and 3y/o girl. I have a lot of questions and have had several of them answered by ya'll already and I like that I can look through the forums and finds answers to a lot of other ones I have. Everyone has been so kind to share their information in construstive ways that I went from being ready to sell the rescue mare we recently bought for the kids to deciding that I will keep her, take lessons with a trainer and buy the kids a pony in the spring once they've as well had some lessons. I am really excited about this. I have always dreamed of being a horse family and now that my kids have jumped on the horsy train I'm shoveling the coal.
