    Hey, everybody!

    I've been lurking here for ages and finally signed up. I bought a house on 22 acres about 4 years ago and the family that was leaving didn't want their mare anymore so they sold her to me for a dollar! She's a sorrel QH, about 20 yrs old. Mandy's very arthritic, so she's not ridden. A couple of years ago I got her a stable mate, a (now) 21 yr old bay pasofino gelding named "Paso" who has navicular issues, but the farrier is keeping him in good working order. I've ridden him a few times, but he started getting mean, so I haven't ridden him in about a year.

    My other "horses" are my 2 English Mastiffs (over 150 lbs each). I'm a member of a fantastic Mastiff forum, where I've learned more about temperment, nutrition, and health issues than I ever imagined. I began to realize that compared to what I know about my dogs, my knowledge of horses would fit in a thimble. So I'm here as a learner. I have read and read here on this site and hope to learn a lot more from all the veteran horse folks here.

    I'll get some pictures up soon so you can see my horses. I look forward to meeting new folks here and learning all I can!
