For the love of horses

A childhood dream has FINALLY come to fruition! I am 38 years old and just bought my first horse last month! A beautiful chestnut roan Tenessee Walker. This blog is to share my adventures in this new world of horse ownership. I do not come from a horse family, in fact they think I am slightly nuts for doing this. But man am I thrilled!

I welcome your comments and hope that for any other adult who has a dream of becommig a horse momma or poppa that this documentary of my experience helps you in coming to your own decision on horse ownership. Please know I am far from an expert so I am only documenting my journey. Horses, while amazing and beautiful creatures do carry an inherent risk and danger... They are giant prey animals that can do much damage and harm. Please use any information here as food for thought and by know means instruction when it comes to horsemanship.

For anyone who has horse experience please share your thoughts. I welcome all the information I an gather to be be the best care taker and friend to my horse... Therefore making this journey as fulfilling as I possibly can.
