I didn't have time yesterday to unpack my trailer and get my tack moved in to the new place, so I was very excited to head out there today and get organized. I was also anxious to check on the horses and see how they were settling in.
Yesterday the BO had made a few comments about things he was going to do for Lilly and AJ. He needed to fix a part of the fence, get the grain moved down to the shed by their pasture, get a trash can for each of the bags of grain, put up another feed bucket, and get the info chart posted in the shed. I was happy to see that everything had been done! I was amazed and impressed. This place is wonderful.
There is a spring fed pond in their pasture that serves as their water trough, and I wanted to make sure they were drinking out of it. I could tell Lilly was because her legs were covered in mud (she's a water bug), but I wasn't sure about AJ. I took him by the fly mask and walked him to the edge of the pond and he walked right up to the water, so at least I know he isn't being a chicken about the pond. There were hoof prints all around too, so I'm sure they're both drinking.
Here they are by their pond.
I was able to get all organized and get my trailer cleaned out. I can set it back up to be like it was before I started moving around, which is nice. I should only be hauling one horse around for quite a while (I hope) so it's nice to have things in there back to normal.
I did notice I'm missing my nice Kensington hay bag... it was full of hay and I had set it in the bed of the truck with a bale of hay and a bag of shavings for the journey to the new barn. I find it hard to believe that it blew out, and that I didn't notice, but I don't know what else would have happened to it. I haven't seen it since putting it in the bed, so there's a free hay bag, complete with hay, somewhere on Interstate 40 between Raleigh and Apex!
