Horses coming home Sat...I need a tranq

So, Saturday is supposed to be the big day. Yesterday we put up 5 new sections of fencing to completely block off the one field so now I have 2 working pastures, 1 "catch pen"/paddock, and the dirt field that needs some work.

All the stalls are finished and the barn is cleaned out. I need to hang some things and get the tack room set up - we are bringing our stuff home Friday. Also on Friday the gates are being hung (they're in place but need to screw the hinges in), a few more boards have to go up here and there, we need to finish picking up sticks and tree limbs that have fallen, and we need to bed the stalls.

Hay is coming tomorrow morning and we have extra feed and shavings. Buckets, blankets, etc are with them now so will have them come Saturday afternoon. I think I'm only going to leave 1 water bucket with them Friday and bring the second ones home so they have water as soon as they get there.

Is there anything I'm missing? As the hours count down I'm getting more and more nervous. I just keep thinking "What if I overlooked something???" and something happens because of it. I've moved boarding facilities 5 times - but have never had them outside my door.

Feed bins with lids?
Now take a big deep breath and relax. This is just the beginning!!!
Good luck and enjoy being able to look out of your window and see your horses whenever you like.

Spare bits of old baling twine to mend things they break within five minutes of being home

Torch in the tack room / feed store for when the bulb goes and you need to feed in the dark

Bottle of champagne to celebrate achieving your dream

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Get one of those magnets on the end of a handle and walk around all over where any building was done to fine all the dropped nails and screws. Trust me, if you don't find them, the horses will!

I may not be good, but I am slow!
