Frozen Horse Pucky

Br-r-r-r! It's 24 degrees right now. It was even colder this morning...with loads of snow! When I arrived at the barn this morning the horse pucky was frozen. My next thought was, 'What could I do with frozen horse pucky?' Instead of shoveling it into the wheelbarrow then dumping it as I usually do, I decided to turn my usual stall cleaning routine into a game.

I placed one of the empty water buckets far enough down the barn aisle, oh, about 50 feet or so, and figured it'd be fun to see how many horse turds I could actually get into the bucket. I was pretty accurate, until I accidently hit Judy in the head, as she was coming out of one of the stalls, with one of those rock-like projectiles. She was a real good sport about the whole thing.

I have a sneaky suspicion she'll be getting even with me tomorrow. The temperature is supposed to drop to seventeen degrees.

I wear a helmet every day, but only when I ride. Maybe I should wear it all the time.

Now you know what your poor Dad has to deal with. At least life is never dull.

I love you, Sweet Sue.
