Winter has transitioned nicely into spring and we’ve been enjoying the warmer weather, the hens’ fresh eggs, thunderstorms and the green grass.

The last bale we have to use is in decent enough shape but really, when green grass is growing, that’s all that’s on a horse’s mind.

When the horses aren’t stuck in the muddy paddock, eating hay and doing their best to nibble at the green grass within their reach of the fence boundaries, they get to go out and enjoy the tender green shoots. Their time on the pasture is limited at the moment because of all the rain and the tendency of their galloping hooves to rip holes in the earth, so I have to trot across the muck and skip their hoof divots to let them out for a few hours.

I really need to invest in some good rain boots.
