Making this place more horse friendly has been a long process. I’ve been here over a year and I still don’t have some essentials like cross-ties or a hitching post and a wash station. No mats. You know…
So the farrier came today… and after squeezing into 5 different pastures to trim, he asked if I had considered cross ties.
Well, I told him that I had, of course, but didn’t have much flat space and hadn’t decided where to put the grooming area. I had delayed this because I felt that I had to put up the shelters and hay storage first. So….
He and I walked around and we settled on a spot that we could put up cross ties that would not interfere with any future plans. In fact, we decided to use a fence post as one side so we really only needed one more post.
Well… instead of leaving and waiting for me to beg Hubby to dig the hole, HE DUG IT HIMSELF!
I could not believe it!
I didn’t know how to compensate him for being such an angel, so I brought out a bunch of necklaces and he picked a nice pearl piece for his wife. He was thrilled with ‘one gift down’!.
