What is your routine before and after school/work?
--before work I don't have a routine, but I am always running late. I jump out of bed, bathroom time, dress in my scrubs, and I'm out of the house in 15 mins. I stop at the gas station, grab a fountain drink, and head to work. When I get off work, I stop by the barn, feed, groom, clean, then come home. When I get home, I feed the dogs, then think about what to make for dinner.
What is your routine for days off school/work?
--on my days off, I wake up some time between 830-930, go feed, groom, clean, do some sort of work with the horses. Come home, run errands, play on the computer. Repeat at dinner time.
What is your routine with your horse?
--this varies depending on the day of the week
What is your grooming and saddling routine?
--each horse gets rough brush out before saddling
What is your routine when washing your horse?
--after riding, horses are rinsed off from nose to tail. Then groomed. For shampoo washings, each horse is soaked, then I use a diluted shampoo in a bucket. With a sponge, I start on the right side, neck to tail, repeat on left. Rinse. Then groom.
What is your horses feeding routine?
--Hay is thrown first. Feed is prepared while horses are distracted with hay :). Supplements are put in first, the feed into the buckets. Horses are fed from left to right.
What do you do when riding and when do you lunge?
--this varies with the day of week, as well
Is your horse paddocked or stabled?
--small 10x30ft long paddocks/traps. Out in pasture at night, or day during winter.
What is your routine when cleaning the house?
--I start in the back guest room, and work up to the kitchen. After picking up, I sweep, then swiffer, then mop.
Hope that helps.
