    So I decided today that pitchforks are probably one of the greatest inventions in the world. How did I come up with this conclusion? Well, I am in charge of spreading woodchips all over the arena (evenly). I was trying to do it with a rake, which wasn't doing much good. So I started looking around thinking to myself "what should I use to move these around more effectively?" When BAM!! I saw the beloved pitchfork!!! I then proceeded to pick it up and try different ways to hold it (having never used one before). Well, I finally got into the swing of things and before I knew it, the arena was starting to look pretty darn good!

    Anyways, just thought I would share what I learned today

    By the way, I don't recommend throwing things INTO the wind

    Thanks for reading!!

    Ok, so yesterday I thought that pitchforks were amazing. Today I think they are stupid... I am so sore, I have blisters all over my hands, and my left arm won't stop flexing! I was so sore I could barely work on the arena!! Any advice on how to get in "pitchfork shape"?

    LoL! Pitchforks are great. I dunno what to do to get in shape for them though other than to keep doing it to build up the right muscles..

    Funny you posted that, because we had a patient just a few days ago, who came in with a broken nose and a very swollen face from tripping over one and falling on her face.
    I'm sure she would have had something else to day about them

    To get into shape, just keep doing it. Stretch before and after to lessen the strain. Take a few days break the first few times, and try not to overdo it.
