Two of my three are Army Reserve (same unit). Though Jillian lives a few hours from their unit, she travels up during drill weekends. Christopher is also the units Civilian Administrator, so she needed to stop at his place for some paperwork. Adam called Fri. evening, the three of them were headed out for a bite to eat at a sports bar that Christopher's girlfriend works at. Hubs was at a college basketball game that night. I hesitated for a few as I don't do bars (long story), then decided what the H and went to join them. So glad I did :).
Today, I'd depleted the store of hay (usually 30) we keep down on pallets. Lifted all the pallets, cleaning under them. This by the way is the first spring where I haven't had to toss the bottom layer due to molding. Originally, we'd put the hay on pallets, but moisture found it's way to the bottom stack. So, hubby built a platform for the hay, still moisture seeped thru. This past year, I put pallets on the platform & walla no hay loss. After I got that cleaned up, I pulled another 20 or so down from the loft and cleaned up the loft. Still have a small supply in the loft, though come May we'll be needing to bring in a load for sure.
After, because I have so much energy!!! "NOT" I grabbed the grooming block and had at it with Ms. Camryns shedding. Actually, I've been having at it daily for the past week but, today took a few pix of the pile. I find shedding her out rather therapeutic for some odd reason. Last year I went thru three grooming blocks, I prefer those to metal or rubber curries. I did find a product online called "SleekEz", google it and check it out. They have several videos showing how great it works. However the videos seem to carefully omit a visual of it's underside. I'd like to know what it's made of, I mean it comes in contact with my horse so to me just makes sense. I wrote them last week but, no reply. So, guess I won't be ordering one of those. If anyone has one or has knowledge of the product, feel free to comment and let me know if it's worth it?
OK, so now some pix of future bird nest lining...
