Miss @Hudson and me,

Welcome aboard! You will find all kinds of helpful folks on the forum. Since you like horses, you are in luck, as Miss @thistlebloom has found your journal. There are several other folks on the forum here who either have or know about horses, such as Miss @Baymule in east Texas, USA, Miss @Fermarjan, in southwestern Virginia, USA, Miss @Mini Horses in south eastern (coastal) Virginia, and I am sure there are others here that is escaping my memory at the moment. There are all other kinds of folks who help you with things like gardens, such as Mr. @Mike CHS, in Tennessee, USA, and Miss @Baymule. So feel free to post to your heart's content. BTW, we like pictures! So, again, welcome aboard!

BTW, in what province in Australia are you located?

It’s 11:40 am here today I’m about to go check on my hens and collect the eggs and I really hope there are more. I run a small egg stall where I sell them to my dads friends at work and they pay $5 a carton. I will post pics of my chickens today 😁
