Hello From Colorado!

I found this site looking for ideas to help grow out a mane that disappeared with the help of the bale feeder!

I have been a horse lover my whole 41 years of life but only got my own first horse 7 years ago. I bought an old mare from a trader and lost her 3 months later to an impaction colic from a massive hairball.

Then I got a breeding stock Paint mare, then a retired cutter QH mare for the hubby, sold the Paint mare to buy a palomino paint gelding. Then we got an appy colt that I promptly had gelded. Yesterday I sold my palomino gelding to a young gal in Wyoming so I am down to our 29 yr old QH...Docs Jackie Flick and our 5 year old Appy IBIA Ghost Hunter. My goal is to work with Hunter this year and see what we can do.

I am anxious to see what I can learn here and hopefully, be able to contibute!
