I guess there is a bonus to being left home for Thanksgiving this year. My neighbor (big horse boarding facility, I take lessons from her) asked me to do a couple of morning feedings while she is visiting family for Thanksgiving. She has someone to do the evening feedings, a boarder who lives about 30 miles away. Since I'm 1/4 a mile away, it would definitely be easy for me to get over there rather than ask the person to do the mornings too.
Should be exciting! I'll be doing it a few times with her so I know exactly what to do. There are only five horses that get fed first thing in the morning, so it isn't as big as the evening feeding. Good for a newbie to learn!
The rest of my family will be in Germany for the holiday. But someone has to hold down the fort here! Plus I work on Thanksgiving, a job is kinda important.
