Today is the last day of my maternity leave. I'm not sure if I'll have more time or less time to post our adventures here at Borderlands. Chores are going to be interesting when I do go back to work. I want to burn through all the big rounds before I start using the better quality big squares. But pitching hay from rounds is time consuming and I seem to have less time now than I ever did before.
I prefer to pitch hay, otherwise I can't tell who gets to eat at the round bales and who will get pushed out. With a herd of nine, I expect the less dominant horses will get pushed out but it may be that I have to simply keep a close eye on everyone to ensure they all dine on a round bale.
I'm hoping this weekend to do some fencing and subsequent rearranging of pens so reduce the time it takes me to go from one pen to another. We'll see how the new arrangement works. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it goes well.
We will soon be starting some brainstorming sessions for fundraiser ideas. If you have any that you would like to share, they are always welcome. Please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don't see many posts in the next few days, it's me simply trying to get into the swing of reality again. We are here as always here plugging along.
