    Hello and welcome to BYC - it’s great that you have joined us. Please make yourself at home. There are threads on both horses and gardening, so be sure to use the BYC search function and jump right in.

    This is a useful link of “How to” BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3. I’d suggest including your location using the guide in the link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes

    No horses yet - we are on just over 4 acres, and hubby promised I can get horses - but so much to do before we will be ready - converting corn field into a home. I grew up with a horse, though!
