I'm 20, so young adult. I just haven't had my own horse since I was 13, so don't remember everything, and my parents paid for his care. These are my first horses that I am completely responsible for, and honestly that scares me a bit (as does everything else I'm not used to, because I tend to be anxious). This filly is my first young horse, I wasn't expecting to get a mare and 'foal', and honestly, I wasn't prepared to get a horse when I got them (a friend called me and told me about them; they were free, and the owner wanted me to pick them up the next day). So yes, I am in way over my head. But I do tons of research whenever I get into something new (or even think about it), and learn everything I can (I'm looking at this as reasearch, too, and find this to be quite enlightening, as I've never thought to look into grain before, and have never felt it necessary to learn everything there is to know about raising foals, since it seemed so far into the future. ). Yes, I am asking a lot of questions, yes, I sound like I know nothing about horses (even though I've been volunteering at a stable in exchange for riding time for 6 years, and have been around horses for 10 years), but it's because I'm an anxious person who is afraid of doing something wrong and not being perfect at caring for my horses.
