I’m not complaining.
Maybe a little. But, that’s because some of the work is insane…pulling miles of barbed wire out of the ground because someone was too lazy to take it to the dump, and decided to bury it instead, is ridiculous!!
The reality of it is, we’ve bought land that’s been occupied for many years, and not everyone has been interested in doing what’s best for a. the land, and b. any livestock living on it. That’s means we have to do it. I’m not taking chances with the Girls getting hurt. Removing garbage now means less vet visits. That’s a good thing. Emergency vet visits are not cheap-and horses *always* hurt themselves at the very worst times. Trust me on that, it’s true. 😉
The joy of it is that I had a chance to snap some photos for this weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday prompts…
On my feet
It’s mucky and dirty, and the pasture is finally drying out into a sticky mass of poop, mud and straw. Yay! No more slop!
I know what people say about crocs, but they are oh, so comfy! I love my crocs, even though the are ugly as all get out.
Here’s an interesting set of shapes I found out in the pasture…the little nub part was sticking up, with just a bare hint of the top ring as well.
This could have caused serious ouchies to any equine who stepped on it.
Okay, none of those things are little, but this is one of those little things in life that you have to capture, have to enjoy…Hubby was using the tractor to pull out the barbed wire, and the girls felt they should follow the tractor around the pasture. It was so adorable…I laughed myself silly watching them. 🙂
We’ve spent many hours working in the pasture, getting it into shape for the girls, and it’s looking good. Especially after I scooped up much of the horse apples and used them to fill the holes left by the barbed wire snarls.
All that work makes a girl hungry…I had made a couple of these egg muffins yesterday, but got full. I pulled it out of the fridge and enjoyed it immensely. It was cold, but the sun was shining, the birds were singing, the dog was playing, and all is good in my world.
Even if I do have a lot more garbage to get rid of. There’s always next weekend. 😉
Linking to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
