January Blahs. I don't seem to have time for the blahs. Don't you find that time really is speeding up.
I like the idea where people aren't making news years resolutions any more. Seems like it's passé.
One goal I gave myself after I sold my 2 yr. old reining filly last Sep. was to complete a fine art certification. After 3 months, I can proudly say that I have completed it.
Do The Small Chores Around The Farm
My old reining mare Jackie will be 20 years old in April. I remember more than 15 years ago when I used to burn old papers in a burn barrel at the farm I had at the time. I remember someone cautioning me about not having a fire close to horses as it would scare them.
Scare them!?! I had to catch myself from laughing out loud. I was having to keep my horses away from getting too close to the fire. I was always introducing new things to them for training and entertainment. I still do it today though I'm down to only 1 ole mare.
This winter I'm having to burn some weedy hay I have that the horse doesn't like. In the first photo you can see my mare just eating good hay while I improvised and am using my old round bale feeder as the burn barrel.
Just to prove that my mare really doesn't care about the fire, I have another photo of my mare having walked past it.
