Spring Cleaning !!

Its great to to get this job done !

The horses were waiting for their tea....!

My big pile.......better out than ..... in !!


I thought that I was going to have an easy day today....how wrong was I !

For some strange reason...I found myself in the mood...to muck out the barn, the weather was much better than yesterday, the wind had disappeared and the ground was drying out....

So I rolled my sleeves up got the muck tynes out and off I set....to wield war on the barn !

During the winter months, I deep litter the horses and the alpacas, so there was plenty deep litter to remove.

Surprisingly, I quite enjoyed the whole process.....its a great feeling of achievement when you get those jobs crossed off the list. It took about three hours from start to finish.....I was finished around 4pm and went in for a well deserved cuppa !

If the weather stays nice..I intend to also clean out the alpacas ready for Spring ! I will be on top of my job list if I managed to get this done by March time....I am hoping to get the manure out onto the hay fields.....as this makes excellent organic fertiliser.

Oh the excitement of muck-spreading.....I can't wait......funnily enough...I also enjoy this task..its almost like a bit of a challenge.....and its a great feeling when you manage to get a good job done !

So Knockie Nora...has worked hard today......and is all tucked up in the barn having a well earned rest.....

Oh...the joys of Spring...well the moral of this story is....if you fancy doing something.....then its a real pleasure..to get the job done !!!!!!

A willing work-force is a happy one....and we are all done and dusted....for tonight

Tomorrow is another day

I wonder ....what ... I get up to !!!!!

When you're in the mood it's best to get it done isn't it.

It's still winter here. I am longing to pick the pastures as soon as the snow is gone and it thaws out enough.

It is beginning to feel that we are through the worst of winter...we are all getting a spring in our step and looking forward...not all of us feel the need to create such a pile of poo though...what some people do for pleasure!! Seriously, nothing like getting a job done when you are in the mood.
