Hi all! I have been very lucky to have my horse full-boarded at a great facility since just after I bought him. I am familiar with having to muck stalls, fill waters, organize feed and hay for morning feeds etc.
I am moving next Friday and Cooper comes up on Saturday to our new home in North Carolina, where he will be in my front yard! (YAY!!!) I was wondering what everyones routines are, especially those of you who may work 40 hr weeks and have kids.
Ther are 2 homes on the property and 3 horses owned by the other home-owner. She does not feed or give hay, so there isnt much maintenance on her part. She simply lets them graze and stay out in pasture 24/7. I have nothing against that, its just not what Cooper and I are used to. So whats the trick? Just getting up super early? I will have to wake my 5 year old to come to the barn every morning and afternoon. What do you do on rainy days?
On the positive side, I will not be working right away so I can kinda get it down pat as I go. But I do plan on going back into my 40 hr work weeks.
I'd love to hear any time saving suggestions or a trick 'learned over the years.
