As a new and beginner (1st time) horse owner, I am feeling very overwhelmed. I have one horse (4 yr old mare) and an adopted shetland pony (20 years). I posted on this forum just recently about a problem I was having with the feeding process. I got a lot of great advice, and I thank everyone for their help. I can't seem to shake these feelings of apprehension and doubt that I'm having. Are these normal feelings? I feel like I should keep just one of them, but I know that wouldn't be fair to the one that's left. I just wanted a companion horse, had no intention to ride right away. I don't think the 4 yr old mare was a good choice. But the seller insisted that she would be well suited for just a companion if I didn't want to ride. She is a great horse and would make a wonderful trail horse for someone. But I don't think she is a good fit for me, I felt this right away. I just wanted an older mature, well trained sweet horse that I could take care of and love. I have had them both for about 2 and a half months. The shetland came to me with a problem eye also that required veterinary care. He can be pushy and nippy but I spent more time with him in the beginning due to the eye injury. Anyway, sorry to ramble on so. I don't mind all the work that comes with owning them. Just need some advice or thoughts.
