Improving footing for the horses

  We had a very heavy snowfall last week which allowed the horses to move
around much more comfortably, but things are starting to freeze toice
again.  Oh well, spring is not far away with the pleasures of glodbal
warming.

We rented four of our box stalls to a trainer.  The revenue is welcome,
but it meant relocating the horses that we had been feeding in those
stalls.  They include, of course, some of the most difficult to manage
(that's why they were in the box stalls) and any change in morning
routine disrupts the whole herd.  Oh, well.  They (and we) will get used
to the new arrangements.  Eventually.

And now two of the new mares are trying to kick their way through the
wall between them and kill each other.  They are Percherons, so they
might succeed.

Income is good, change is a pain.
