Family Cleanup

The kids wanted more horse sledding today, but we told them that they’d need to help clean up the barn after the blizzard this week. So Tia, myself, Delaney, and Kendall went out to work on the barn.

We all started mucking out stalls, and the kids decided that was hard work quickly. I agree, with the wet hay and manure, a shovel-ful is heavy. So we had them sweeap out the barn, which is a good chore while Tia and I mucked. Kendall even scraped manure off the back pad, which is a good chore as well. A 30x20 slab of the cement that the horses try to completely cover with manure each week.
