Used to run a stable and live on a farm, now I am back into banking for awhile. Still have horses and love animals.

A very relaxing Sunday

The larger herd went out to the big pasture today and looked very happy and relaxed. The two German Shepard's belonging to the neighbor who sometimes like to run the fence line were a nuisance but the horses ignored them for the most part. My little herd stands and grazes next to them as if they weren't there. 

I took the bungee cord off of the larger gate and replaced it with chain and a proper fastener then mowed a bit. Got Cody's salt block holder up and moved the manure spreader out of the way. I believe I will need the big spreader in the spring when I spread a large pile but I don't think I will need it most of the time. My little cart seems to do the job very well. 

Thanks to Pam for her tips on picking stalls and using baking soda! Stall management is shaping up very nicely and I am very pleased that the process is clean and efficient. I will be interested to see if the horses gain weight from the pasture and I have limited my little herd because they started looking like ball park franks :)
