Personally, I don't know how any of you get so much riding time in during the week. I read where you have hour, hour and a half rides 2-3 times a week and longer ones on the weekends. I leave for work at 06:30 and don't get home until 19:00. By the time the horses, chickens, goats, dogs and husband are fed, my evenings are shot! Weekends = laundry, house cleaning, pen cleaning, nest cleaning, grooming etc.
Now that it's getting dark so early, I'm in the same boat as you are, Lucara. I told hubby he was going to have to rig up some drop lights just so I can see well enough to find the feed barrels and fill the feed buckets!
