Recently I realized something about myself. One of my biggest pet peeves about winter is not being able to pick paddocks. The piles accumulate and freeze. It gets worse with snow because the manure glares at you among the beautiful white powder.
“Oh you want to scoop me up and have nice looking paddocks? Haha…no. Oh and I broke your pitch fork too by the way. That was a cute gesture though.”
– Horse manure
I’m one of those people who likes things to look nice. I work for a couple of my friends and I like to make sure that their barns look fantastic when I leave. It can be so annoying when I leave the paddocks in this state there’s really nothing that can be done until spring or until we get a heatwave.
Unfortunately due to the need to make extra money and the process of our moving this past weekend there is no Equine 101 this week. Hopefully I’ll be a little more awake and unpacked for next week so until then have a very Merry Christmas if you celebrate. Happy holidays to all of you.
Where are you from?
Do you have this trouble where you live?
What is one of the thorns in your side at the barn?
