The beauty of snow in Colorado is that it disappears after a few days of sunshine. USUALLY. I have had snow on the ground for over 2 weeks now. As you may realize at this stage, I have some body deficits/disabilities, so I cannot chisel frozen horse poop without causing LASTING effects. I normally hand-pick my paddocks clean daily. TWO WEEKS OF HORSES POOP on the ground was murdering my soul.
Enter Steve, the best hunnie ever. He used the tractor to scrape it all up, with a good amount of snow, into a poop mountain. So at least there are not land mines everywhere to trip and break something over, and the ground is clean-ish. And as a bonus, hopefully the little bit of snow that is left on the ground will melt quickly. The mountain itself should melt relatively quickly too so I can put all of that poop into the dumpster as well.
Leave it to Tempi to decide the poop mountain needs her personal touch of destruction. I love her *not phased by anything* demeanor but LEAVE THE POOP MOUNTAIN ALONE!
Here’s crossing fingers and hooves we thaw out enough before next trash day so that I can actually remove all the poop from the paddocks!
