Hello Dave :)

Thank you for your  welcoming reply. I am a certified riding coach and horse trainer. I am certified to do human Shiatsu massage, reiki , hot stone and other TCM treatments as well. I do teach clinics  on horsemanship , behaviour etc etc.  I love to share and exchange information. So, I am looking forward to reading my way through these forums :)
Hi all,

This is my first post here, but I just wanted to  put it out there in the "crittersphere", that if anyone  here has any questions or  could use some advice regarding horses. I do have quite a knowledge base to draw from, and have decades of experience with horses. So, I'm just puttin' that out there

I am 44 and live on Vancouver Island,  I own a 23 acre farm, am single and have 5 horses, 5 dogs  and 3 cats  right now. I have been primarily working on setting up the property for the horses this last few years, and I am getting closer to my goal with that. Next springs goals are a large garden and to get the chicken coop built and running.

I do want to eventually get off the grid and become as self sufficient as  possible.  I would like my next projects to include getting hydro electric devices set up  , I do have 3 streams running through my property. First I would just like to create enough energy to run my water pump during the winter , as where I live , the winters can have the power out for well over a week at a time.  So, that being said, any advice on how a hydro electric rookie can make a simple  device to do so , would be greatly appreciated and received.

Thanks for reading this, take care.

Be well
