    It is. All of them get grain, so I have to grain them to. One of them is on antibiotics so I have to watch him. Then there is a arthritic horse that I have to put the blanket on and off, depending on the weather. Also, I have to hand graze another because he foundered before. So...I'm pretty much taking about a hour or more when I go to feed the horses. The things I do for the spoiled brats...

    Luckily I have a list that is very clear. Everything is labeled accordingly as well. Plus, I memorized it. Accidentally of course.

    I'm a stablehand at a reasonably large boarding property. If they're at capacity I'm feeding 16 to 18 horses a day, plus my own when I get home. It's pretty crazy. I'm the morning worker so I turn out, muck out, and feed hay and the 3 horses that get morning grain. Then I fill up hay bags and tidy up - all in 2 1/2 hours at most. There are only 5 stables so it's not as crazy as it sounds!

    I have school. I have to do it before and after. But your sounds like a lot of work!

    I only work weekends/Fridays, and I only work mornings, so if I was in school/studying I would have to fit it in anyway :)

    I usually ride after work but presently my main riding horse is lame and my breaker's too young to ride much more than once or twice a week :/ ahhh, time to try to find a horse to exercise... can't afford to own or lease yet another horse so it's someone else's horse, or barely ride at all, until I can get Monty sound again...

    How many horses does everyone's barns hold? My lesson barn can hold up to 42 horses, which isn't considered too large around here.

    Wow 42! That's a lot of horses. We don't board our horses or go to any barns and we don't have too many barns around here. So I wouldn't know how many they can hold, but I know it isn't more than 42!

    Hey y'all! Seems like forever since I've been on-- four days. I have so much to catch up on here!

    I am pretty good at the switchboard at Sonic now, so tonight when I get back to work (I have a split-shift today), I start training for carhop. Yay tips.

    I'm starting to go out to the barn a lot more often nowadays. Love it.
