The days are warm in the afternoon.
Everyone fed, turned out, barn cleaned and a full day in the arena with lessons. Late afternoons are spent cleaning and tidying up what is left around the farm as the snow melts.
The geese are back and floating around in the pond in Billie’s paddock. The squirrels in the trees are so noisy they can be heard over the sound of the quad when harrowing the paddocks. The horses that have lived outdoors all winter look fat and happy to sleep in the sunshine for the afternoons. There is water in the usual places, a small amount of mud in the fields and the grass is coming up among the slowing melting snow piles. Spring is wonderful…green, growing, sunny.
But I’m not taking the snow tires off the quad…
