Wow, how low some people will stoop! The new box looks great. Amazing how much more work 1 more horse is! But the return is worth it. Got a 2nd mat in the new corral & will buy some more later this month. Lucked out that the feed store has a few in on consignment so the price is a bit lower & no tax! When those are gone they will get new ones in-more expensive & taxed-Yikes! My tack shed is quite crowded-want to get a feed shed here soon, so the two don't have to mix. But a roof for ChaCha is top priorty w/winter coming on, & maybe a shelter for the donkey as I hear that they don't shed water as a horse does so need more protection. She has a roof, but she may need more.
Hubby went to his brother's today along w/his Dad, so I will be doing house cleaning as this is a very cold day-the pellet stove is going & the coffee pot is on.
Even coming home yesterday from town w/hay, pellets, etc the truck had a hard time w/a couple of hills, so I need a bit more horse power now & probably the 4-wheel drive option, too. Hubby said it is geared too high for what I need to do now. It has served me well, so I will figure out my options before I have a breakdown. The Trans Temp light coming on when I had a young horse in the trailer was a bit scary.
Anybody riding this week? I plan to tomorrow and/or the next day, as we will be a bit warmer.
