I've been busy. I haven't been posting much here, but I'm posting elsewhere trying to do more advertising for our veterinary practice. If you are interested, check us out on our website and you can find us on facebook too! "Tomah Large Animal Veterinary Service"
It has been a very cold February here. It's been nice to use the new barn for feeding, but the fencing can't be finished until the ground thaws and dries out and the landscaping can be finished around the barn. That means that when I want to supplement them, I have to open their gate and let them all file into the barn (which they learned to do without being haltered and led within a few days). They also all know which stall is theirs now. The pain comes when they are done. I have to halter and lead them back to the pasture 2 horses at a time. If I try to do all 4 and lead 2, invariably, the two loose horses wander into the yard to dig for grass under the snow. If the weather was nicer, it wouldn't be such a pain, but it has been very very cold. We are just patiently waiting for winter to end!
