We’ve been preparing for the darkness and rain of Winter. The tractor has been a huge help. Gravel got delivered for around the barn, Blondie’s stall floor got re-done and mats cut to fit, some slopes around the house and barn got re-cut to better direct the rain away from the buildings, and part of the pasture got re-seeded. There’s always more to do around a horse property though.
The horses are preparing for Winter too with thicker coats. Blondie’s is already pretty thick, but Zi’s lagging behind. She is losing more hair now though which is a sign that Winter hair is pushing the Summer hair out.
