This is the usual laundry that Zing generates. He wears four wraps, so he creates a lot of laundry in wraps, as well as saddle pads.
Does a saddle belong in my office? When it's been cleaned and hasn't been brought back to the barn yet, yes. Zinger's current saddle, that sadly is not fitting him well now. I hope it can be adjusted by a fitter. I'm not going to continue to buy him saddles.
It's below zero today, so leather cleaning is as good a pass time as any. Next week it will start to warm up, then I can clean the tack room. It doesn't seem right to put clean gear in a dirty room. I have a sign in my tack room that says 'Horsework Before Housework' and it is very true in my life. I already have plans to hose down the barn as it warms up, paint the grillwork on the stalls. I am toying with painting the tack room, but that is daunting, so who knows if I'll get it done.
Shedding out horses, clipping bridle paths and whiskers. Vaccinating and deworming. The only thing missing is foaling out mares and covering mares for next years babies. This will be my second spring without foals on the farm. It's so much work and no small amount of stress, but strangely, I miss it. But the truth is, I have enough to do and I can keep busy. But I sure do miss those little ones.
