|Five buckets of supplements for the horses; filled and toted out to the their pastures.|
|The goats need hay and water.|
|The days are hot; the goats seek the shade and it takes three trips with a bucket to refill their water every evening.|
|Hay; they all want hay; horses, donkeys and goats.|
|The mare's pasture gets a lot of sun; the worst one to muck in the afternoons and evenings.|
|The donkey pasture; fortunately this one is pretty shady in the afternoon.|
|The boy's pasture; nice and shady with many oaks and pines but, oh, so dusty.|
Friday, Brett was getting around well enough that I was able to go directly outside and start working instead of first getting him settled on the couch with the ice machine. I even had time to ride! It was short; just 20 minutes, but it felt great. And I did all the barn chores afterwards with no trouble. Next week, its back to regular office hours although I will getting in closer to 9am to give me time to do the chores. I timed myself on Friday and I think I can do it. All of it. I'm feeling very studly and proud of myself.
|And don't forget the chickens. They need to be let out into their run and given any scraps|
Even Kersey gets exercise. I make her leave her comfy crate and come with me. She dragged herself around the first few days but she's getting more energetic now; sticking her nose down squirrel holes and sniffing along the fence while I work.
