The PA Horse World Expo is in the beginning of March. And its such an amazing event. I went to it once, years and years ago and had a blast. Now that I'm an adult and have free time (haha) I'm thinking about going. There's some really amazing lectures that I want to go to and also its just plain fun.

The other thing I want to do is start training to drive horses. Some day I want to get a team of draft horses and if I want to keep them in condition, I need to know how to harness and work them properly. I did some googling and there's a farm in vermont that does 4 day draft working workshops that I'm interested in doing. It is in October so that's even a reasonable time. I don't know if it will happen this year but maybe I'll aim for next year and see what happens.

and it was great. I love scrubbing things and making them clean. I also like cleaning horse poop because its quiet and no one bothers you.

Its now much cleaner! There was another one that I scrubbed but it was getting dark and I needed to get the horses in by the time I finished that one. The indoor buckets got scrubbed on the one side of the barn and I'm going to scrub the rest tomorrow morning.

Good stuff

I expect this to be a common occurrence in the next five months or so.

Barn assistant duty is pretty much just cleaning horse shit and feeding horses. They're sweet though. It's kind of neat how each horse is a little different in personality. Or a lot different. We've got one horse who likes to chew on halters and lead ropes. He doesn't bite people and he's calm as anything, but he just likes to hold them in his mouth.

But there's only six horses and they're all pretty great. I volunteer on Saturdays at the barn but taking care of the horses is what I love.
