I never shoveled either. My horse was barn broken. I'm not kidding. He wouldn't muck in his stall. I did have too feed ol' Moses though. It was cheaper before he had to switch to the senior feed, but even then it was still cheaper than buying gas.

He was rock solid dependable, him and my dogs were my closest friends. I gave him away to a little girl, with the understanding from her father that he only had maybe 3 good years in him left. If we'd had a backhoe at the time, we would've kept him. But it was also time to go to Paris Island.

I grew up on horse farms in ky and cattle farms in mo. I miss all my critters these days.

I have shoveled so much muck though, glad I don't have to do THAT anymore. We moved to one farm, the asphalt floors of the stalls had corroded away, leaving pits about 1' or so deep.

For years this lady's spreader was busted, and she never got it fixed so the stalls had not been stripped in 5 or 6 years IIRC.

We fixed that spreader, dad and I that is. I stripped them. Those 1' deep holes had turned into ammonia pits. That was a bad experience. Never again. Lol, we poured concrete floors in that barn shortly after.

I bought a horse when I was 18. She died when I was 36. She was great therapy for me. There's nothing a nice, peaceful trail ride in the woods couldn't fix. And I talk and sing to her as we'd go along. I'd let go wide open in the clearings. I so wish to someday own a horse again.

And since it's the photo thread here.


The mama is Poe, baby I don't remember the name. The chestnut mare in the background died last year while in foal. Very sad, it led the owner of the farm to sell out. All of the horses are gone now and she has disappeared.

I don't have many "digital" pictures as I never really had a phone on me much there. I have real pictures though.

I have many paper photos of my horse. She died long before digital. I loved to kiss her nose and smell her breath. She always smelled like fresh grass or an apple, carrot, etc.

Yep, horse noses are one of my favorite things.

I never had to clean up after horses but I did have to clean up after first calf heifers which we kept in the barn. Was not fun especially since I was the one that had to get up at 3:00 am to check the heifers, every morning. I was a teenager at the time.
