- Hi KeroKero - I just joined the forum, and enjoyed reading your adventures with your first horse. It was so nice to read someone's experience of being a NEW owner - I just recently bought my Clyde mare and your questions are the same as mine. I'm going to read all your posts and learn as much as I can before asking questions that might already have an existing answer here! Thanks for sharing!
