|Michael, Travis, and Alan working on Sally's buggy|
Jerry and I collapsed on the couch after supper and watched a favorite movie, This House of Brede. He worked out this morning but I didn't, fairly sure my stint in the barn this morning would serve the same purpose.
I was right. We feed the horses at 8:00 because it keeps them happy, and by the time I got through I was wringing wet. At 9:00 I went up and got my crew--Travis, Michael, and Alan--and set them to work. Travis cleaned up manure, Alan swept the barn and cleaned the stalls, and Michael helped me rearrange and clean up the hay area. We extracted a 100 foot industrial extension cord and found the fence tool. I was happy!
Sally's cart needed a good cleaning, so we got a start on that. I have to buy a wire brush, leather polish, metal cleaner, and wood wax to get it in shape. Tomorrow we'll start giving all the tack a good cleaning.
It's been a while since I worked with a team, and I'm more impressed than ever by how well our guys do, caring for this place we all love.
