Perfect time to fix up the paddock a bit.
New front-fence, safer than earlier, showed up as a nice surprise!
Valiosa’s outdoor shelter from this post – Building a quick horse shelter – has held up great this winter. The addition of many rubber stall mats, from this post: – Mud Season – helped stave off a complete mud bath in front of it, but not entirely.
So, next project; lay down a geotextile type material and get a big truckload with two different gravels on top. Some handiwork with the tractor, I’m pretty sure it will have to be by me, to get it in place.
Then drag all 15 dead bodies, I mean rubber mats, back on top.
To make it happen, she got new fence posts and a new gate installed, wide enough to drive a truck in.
Most of my contribution to that project was painting it white and decorating with birdhouses. Not sure how much that counts.
This morning – another trailer outing to LBHA with my young mare.
She kept it together in the arena and showed promise of producing an even better show result next time out.
Second horse, sultry Antonio, behaved just as well for me, creating a false sense of security that we’ll do just fine at his next show opportunity….
Sounds so easy. Of course you know how these things go, and it took more than half the day…
Have a lovely weekend!
