It's hard to work when I can't lift my arms...

I know that Farmer with snort with glee and roll his eyes when I post this, but what the hell...

So, yesterday was my first time to work at the barn where I board Flash. There are 14 stalls to clean and 14 horses to feed, water, turn-out and bring back in over the course of the day.

The turn-out and bring-in was no big deal. All the horses are fairly well behaved.

Watering and feed was a piece of cake.

The 14 stall cleanings not so much. I forgot what a freaking work-out cleaning that many stalls is. Holy crap do my arms hurt. A lot!!

But I think I sweated out 3 to 5 pounds, so maybe it was worth it? I don't know... I'm still trying to decide.


  1. Only 14....j/k! You will get used to it soon enough, how often do you work at the barn?

  2. Only once a month, thank goodness :) Hopefully I'll be in WAY better shape by the time it rolls around again next month!!

  4. I used to do 26 in the mornings and it was hell. Kept me in shape though. You'll be fit as a fiddle before you know it!
