The spring ritual of scraping clean the paddocks has now begun! When I arrived at the barn early this morning I could see the neat piles of manure waiting to be transported and spread on the fields. The horses are used to these activities happening around them.
Arriving early today allowed me to chat with Maddi and to meet her darling new therapy dog in training, Huck! Mara and I loved his energy and enthusiasm.
Ride time took us out back around the hay field and around the corn field stubble, because before long they will be plowing and planting back there. Still a sliver of snow left on the trail along the woods. Mara and I enjoyed the early morning time together.
