It's a muddy mess here and with the 2 buildings being taken down we have a mess in the horse pasture as it used to be. The fences have been moved; we now have three pastures with the horses in them. One pasture is for boarders, and the others with the lesson and home horses.
Lessons are as follows for the spring-time.
Mondays 4:30-5:30 beginner lessons
Tuesdays 4-6 private lessons
Wednesday 3:30-5:00 after school riding
Thursday 3:30-4:30 after school riding
4:30-5:30 private lessons
Those are the only scheduled conflicts in the indoor arena. When it warms up, dries up and the outdoor arena is ride-able, riders can ride during lessons in the arena not occupied with lessons.
All tack and equipment is scattered between the sheds, arena's, shop and house during construction. Ask if you need something and can't find it. Also, be careful walking in the mud when walking horses back and forth to the arena's and pastures. The horses have taken the back-hoe noise and tin being tore off the room, not to mention thunderstorms and lightning hasn't bothered any of them; well we weren't out in the middle of the storms asking a lot of questions.
Check the Young Riders Face book for information dealing with 4-H. And yes, we are sorry about the mud, the mud dreadlocks on their tales and unique designs on their bodies. It will get better.
We have spring and mud here at the farm. That hasn't bothered the girls at all. We now have Cola and Saffy here. Cola loves to flirt with Socks. They have a new lean to in the pasture but no one seems to care about it at all. We will be moving fences once the ground thaws out and then they will discover they can't go into the old barn.
We got lots of great deals at the Farmington Tack sale. We have lessons three nights a week now and will be starting day lessons when it gets into April.
