Hi, my name is Trish and I am happily married to my husband James for 5 1/2 years. We have 5 children ages 11 1/2(girl),8 1/2(boy),6(boy),4(girl) & 15 months(boy). We live on 72 acres of rolling farmland near a beautiful forest in Ontario. We have 2 horses: a 24 yr old QH mare~Sanna, and a 6 yr old TB gelding~Hobbins which are rescue horses. We also have 2 cats: a 4 yr old siamese/ragdoll, and a 7 month old tabby, plus 2 dogs:a 6 yr old beagle, and a 6 yr old rottie. Our newest additions are 59~ 4 week old chicks, which keep me hopping!!

Our 6 yr old son has a rare metabolic disease called Hurlers Syndrome which affects 1 in 100,00- babies born, he received a bone marrow transplant in 2002 to slow down the progression of his disease and is now doing wonderful and striving for a much longer and healthier life span. Here is the link to his website should any of you choose to stop by and say hello!! www.caringbridge.org/visit/rhysboyd

My children are my miracles and I am so proud of each and everything they have accomplished.

I absolutely love this forum and you have all helped me out so much while I have adjusted to being a new chicken mommy!!
