I feel a bit like you except that I am home!
Farriers were here early this morning. I had all the horses in before 7 a.m. That was fine and dandy if I wasn't suck a numbskull!
I opened the loose barn door to bring the three year olds in - they come in loose as it saves time! Only trouble was I had left the little side door open so, they came in fine and went straight out again! They disappeared up the drive and as Ron had brought my paper early, the gates were open.
Luckily they decided to go visit Oli and Mickey in their field the track of which leads to the arena.
I had jumped onto the ATV to go shut the gates so when they went into the arena I turned it around to shut them in there. By the time I had turned so they had come out. Two went into the front field and when the third came up the track the two turned around and came out of the field - luckily the one on the drive also turned and back into the arena they went.
I closed the gates and as I came back down the drive so they came out and all three into the front field whereby I closed the gate!
All my fault for not closing the side door.
After I had sorted the farriers out with cups of tea and bacon and egg baps, I left them to get on with shoeing (eight sets) whilst I went into the greenhouse to pot up a load of plug plants.
Eight sacks of compost later and goodness knows how many trays of tiny plug plants, they are now all in larger trays, well the ones I did are - there are still plenty more that need doing! My back aches and I was bored out of my mind.
(That made me wonder so I just added it up that I repotted 2,500 + plants.)
No wonder I found it boringly back breaking!)
I do not drink coke in any form or shape, cannot stand the stuff! Only cold drink I ever have is water or fruit juice. Rest of the time it is tea.
I reckon horses are easier than gardening!
