I just found this forum and I am looking forward to visiting often. I am just a farm "girl". I've always had horses in varying disciplines. For the last 25 years my husband and I have mostly been breeding, buying and selling horses. Throughout that time we've always had laying hens and most of the time a milk cow or goats. My husband is now retired(yeh right) which gives us more time to spend with chickens and coon hounds and other critters.
