There are no “Snow Days” on a horse farm.
No cancellations due to icy road conditions or blowing snow
(with the exception of riding because, yes, there is wind chill in the arena not fit for human or horse)
On the coldest, snowiest, blowiest, most unpleasant days:
the stalls still need to be mucked;
the horses still need to be fed;
water buckets in the paddocks still need to be dumped and replenished;
hay still needs to be distributed several times a day;
the barn still needs to be swept and cleaned;
Lunch time for Quito
Bringing in Promise
The leaf blower helps
the horses still need to be groomed ;
an ailing horse still needs attention;
the manure still needs to be dumped …
and so it goes.
Just sayin’ …
Here’s to the unsung heroines of the horse industry enduring winter conditions at equestrian facilities everywhere!
Stay warm and nurture what you love…
