Thank you very much for your response. I am new to this site as well and wasnt sure how long of a question I could write. We are located in southern ontario near Peterborough, and I see that some people have salt blocks and never really understood salt blocks either, is it so that the horses drink more water... Also when you said that depending on my area I might be lacking in minerals, where do I find that out......( my question mark isnt working sorry ) I just want to make sure that I am prepared to start this and worried about screwing up I guess.
I had a horse before, waiting forever to get one and than when I finally did he was great a quarter horse named Boa-Jangle. He was amazing and great to keep my riding up on, I thought about getting into barrel racing but he was struck my lightning in a rain storm. I have never been sader, and it has been about 4 years but I am now ready to get back on a horse but want to remember the basics on horse care as alot of that was done at the boarding spot we had.
Thank you again for any response or help you may give.
