Hi! I just joined yesterday, and this is my first post. A bit about me...
I've been volunteering at a local animal shelter for 2 years, and in January, I adopted my first dog, a 1 y.o. male lab/pointer mix, Luka. I also have a teddy bear hamster (Obi), 3 mice (Pro, Echo, Mooney), 2 gerbils (Goma, Ti), 4 frogs, and a pond full of about 40 goldfish.

I've also been horseback riding (hunter/jumper) for 5 years. Last summer, I leased a green (incompletely trained) Thoroughbred named Romeo who was a wild bucking bronco. I also just finished training a Morgan/Arab pony named Sadie into a lesson pony, and I've been assigned to exercise/train a saddlebred named Jewel (wish me luck, cuz she's crazy).

Hope I'm welcomed here! :)
