As a "Master Mucker" I seriously question your passion to muck. I event muck and I can easily spot an imposter and I believe you may be one. I notice you have no actual muck on your rake nor do I see any muck miniatures on the floor of the stall. I fear that you are merely pushing the muck under the abundance of hay. This technique is commonly referred to in the industry as when "poo comes to shove".
Thanks everyone! I look like an imposter? Are you serious? The stable is brand new and has only had horses in it for 5 months. It's not big either, just 5 stalls (3 are 12x18 and 2 are 12x16). I only have 4 horses in the barn as one stall we use for hay. My husband snapped the pic when I first started and I do deep bedding (the floors are dropped down by 5") so it looks pretty clean on top. It was also -25C when this pic was taken so you don't sweat when it's that cold!! :)
IF I post mucking pictures it will be AFTER:
1) the stalls are cleaned and bedded
2) the 2013 cobwebs are cleaned up
3) the aisleway is clear
4) the clutter in front of my grain room and tack room has been moved
If I posted pre-mucking, you might think my horses live in an equine ghetto!! =b
IMO this picture is just an ad for the stall vendor.
