Gidji, thank you. The first aid kit will be done and yes, I've done sheath cleaning before (my husband offered to get me a Haflinger as "his" horse if I do it for him after he found out what it is
). Gotta remember the buckets!
Sponge also. I have some lungeing (ha, I always spell it the German way which is wrong in English :roll:) stuff, even though one of my lunge lines disappeared. I will let the vet and farrier know once we move down there.
Kmarie and trashcanchaser, we will be moving on 25 acres that we share with my SIL (she has 3 horses of her own, so if need be I can borrow from her until I get my own and believe me she has more than enough stuff, I've seen her garage!
). Initially we will have a port-a-stall set-up, but we will be building a full barn, arena and round pen and of course pastures. Oh, there is some forest and a creek on the land that we will use for trails. How fast we get everything set up depends on the price and how much money we will have, but since we are all contributing and its a a couple months away, we should be getting a good setup started.
As for what I will be doing with him, initially getting him to lose some weight (he was pastured in luscious grass for a couple years and is an easy keeper...) and get him muscled up again. Then mainly trails and some arena work, though my SIL wants to take me to some shows, as I have little experience there. He is 17, so I will not do anything too excessive with him.That is reserved for my next horse
Thank you all for your input! Keep it coming! I sometimes tend to forget the little things when I have so much to think about
