After chores, I just don't have the energy for my nutcase horses.
When I do ride, I ride before chores. That way, I'm at full capacity when I ride, which is optional, and I have
to do chores afterward whether I feel like it or not, because that's not
If I did chores beforehand (mucking, sweeping, picking hooves, etc.) and thought about riding, I'd say "screw it" and go inside to my novels and art homework. Yes, I'm pathetically lazy.

What a man can be, he must be." Abraham Maslow, 1968
