Every morning my routine is the same. I let the dogs out...feed them and the cats...grab a big fat carrot from the fridge...put on my boots, hat and gloves...stuff my camera in a pocket and head out to the barn by 7:30. Then, the beet pulp gets added to the horses grain along with their supplements, half a carrot and half of an apple. While they are eating I set up their grain for the evening feed, clean out the beet pulp container and start soaking a new batch for "supper." Next, the hay is put out...in the sun if it's cold/under the shed roof if it's grey or raining. As soon as Berlin is finished I open both of their gates....they are off to the races and I clean their stalls. When I'm done, set up their hay and water for the night.
You already know that two of our barns are over a hundred years old...pretty primitive. The beams are trees that still have the bark on them and they were whitewashed many years ago. Above is Berlin's stall. Lots of thick rubber mats and a section with shavings/pellets. It used to be more than one stall, but I knocked down the wall. Now it's about 30 feet long.
Below is Abbe's suite. Same size as Berlins. They are both spoiled.
No frost, but very chilly.
Another small class today. Busy working and lots of chatter.
Ran a few errands after lunch and then had a surprise visit from a friend (Missouri) who is in town to spend Thanksgiving with her family. Boy, did we catch up.
Chores a little after 5.
Almost completely dark....
Decided to take some pictures without the flash.
Even tho it does not have a green tint...the barn light makes everything else that color.
