Horsfields tortoises are great (Without the 'E')

Try this site Tortsmad and this site The Russian Tortoise for care information.

With regards to diet, ideally garden weeds should be the bulk of the diet (It isn't the best time of year to get a tortoise, not many weeds about now ). Most people hibernate their Russians in the winter and don't have to worry about finding food.
This site will help with good plants to feed - The Tortoise table

If you post some photos showing what housing your tortoise has, with some description of the lighting and heating, we can advise further. Follow this thread for help uploading photos.

Lastly, if you post your questions in the Shelled section, you will get more replies.
