You may be wondering what in the world I've been up to if I have been too busy to ride and to blog. I've been working hard to winterize Roz and Emi's paddock as the rain is scheduled to roll in tonight. Last year we used hog fuel to reduce the mud but I wasn't that thrilled with it. My main issue with it was the number of slivers I'd pick up while grooming the horses. This year I'm trying something new, cedar wood chips. I got a pick-up load of each day on my lunch hour and then spent some time in the evening unloading them so that I'd be ready to go the next day. I don't have a picture of the finished product but I'm looking forward to seeing how well they hold up over the winter.
