For those considering getting horses...
I have just spent two full days of "maintenance"...cleaning stalls, runs, scooping manure, bathing horses, putting on fly spray, treating minor cuts and bites, cleaning up hooves, change out hay bales....ugh...its not all fun and games and whew am I tired, sunburned and hot!
Horses are lots of fun to ride, but usually that is about 5% of the time you spend with them while the rest is clean up and maintenance. Not really complaining, maybe I am just feeling my age today.
And it is like 90+ degrees outside...could be worse, I could be like my mare and 10+ months pregnant
