Well, I really hate my pasture now. And I already did. Its super hard and is SCREWING up Tango, he's been laid up for a week now, I rode him yesterday and let him jump some tiny fences in the backyard but thats it. NOW, We had a huge thunderstorm [fires behind, in front, and east and west of us for 3 days] We had atleast 2 1/2 inches of rain, plus hai. Hail, in 95 degree weather. So now the pasture has bumps and everything, and the rain washed up rocks. There are rocks. everywhere.
Tangos hocks, back, fetlocks, neck, and shoulders hurt. He's moving MUCH better now, and I hate riding in the backyard because it feels funny since its all rolly, but its pretty soft and Tango likes it.
We are looking at property to buy! Its a few miles down the road, right across the street from our vet [literally], next door to the all the cows in the giant pasture, 2 driveways down from the hay place and paint breeder "the yellow barn" as we call it. Its 11.2 flat, usable acres. The house needs a lot of work, the barn has had much better days, but can be refurbished to 11 stalls. We bring our barn we have here and put it up on concrete, put in a large outdoor riding ring and wala.
