A note from the Lead Mare:
Yikes- I lost count of how many days were horribly cold!!!! -at least it is warmer this week.
The horses survived with their nice warm blankets and lovely round bales of hay. I am a HUGE fan of HayChix bale nets.

Back to the hay nets. I have 9 horses on a bale. The bale lasts about 5-6 days with ZERO waste. There is almost zero fighting with all horses around the bale. The nets allow them to eat 24/7 like grazing so their gut is always working and they stay warmer.
Not only am I enjoying the warmer temperatures, I have also been able to move Hickory to an indoor so I can ride even on the worse days- yes I am nuts and ride on sub-zero days. We work on my balance and I play around riding bareback.
Hickory is coming along nicely, transitions and self carriage. He has a nice quiet personality.
I am taking reservations for spring training. Get your horse on the list for first spots (only 4 per month)
1 week tune-up starts at $150.
