Bel Joeor Sale and Giveaway!

Amanda from Bel Joeor is hosting a big sale on her Etsy site and a giveaway on her blog!  She makes beautiful saddle covers and bags.  I highly recommend checking out her shop and entering her contest.  

Just another day on the farm...

This past Sunday my husband had to fix my barn floor.  It is made of wood (not by choice...it is 200 years old so that is what I have...for now!) which is not the best equine flooring in my opinion.  Yes, it looks pretty and is fairly cushiony, but it is a pain in the butt to maintain.  I am careful about airing the urine spots on the stall floors, I use more bedding (shavings) than I probably need to, and all that.  But still, there are rot spots from time to time.


There has been a soft spot at the back of the barn for a while now.  It is underneath the mats, so I was not too worried.  When it rained EVERY SINGLE DAY last summer, I was never able to get the back 6-10" of the floor to dry out completely, hence the soft spot of rot in the boards.


Well, Reva accidentally stepped on it that morning and CRACK! Yup, it finally gave out.  Thankfully, there were no issues except for the noise...and of course, my sensible filly just kept walking out!  LOL!


So anyway, while the boys fixed it up, I took some photos. 


Here they are.....my husband cut out the spot with his chainsaw (gotta love a woodsman who plays carpenter...LOL) so that he could easily piece in more wood.  I did not have my camera for the chainsaw part.  :(  ha ha ha


Here is one of the barn cats, Mac, taking a drink from a horse water tub.



Reva!  :)


 Best buddies!  :)




More of Mac...he was feral but is now the sweetest kitty!




Sparky looks great for age 28!  :)



Two of my girls!  Dreamy was off grazing in her pasture on the other side of the barn, which I could not see from where I was sitting. 




Mac is trying to "help"....LOL!




Such a cutie!  :)

We have wooden floors under rubber mats, and have a program to replace two stall floor every year - before they do the cracking thing! Love the cat helping out with the work!
Your husband got many helpers!
