I don't know that there is such a thing as "normal" or "average" at an equine Sanctuary, but this outlines many of the common summer morning chores.
First, of course, is breakfast. Between 6:00 and 6:15, feed is measured into individual feed tubs according to each Elder's individual needs. Warm water is added to the feed which is allowed to soak to make a thick "mush." Breakfast is served at 7:00, with each horse eating in a separate stall, paddock or shed. Once breakfast is finished and the horses turned out, we:
Rinse Beau's place mat (a car floor mat he eats on to prevent him from eating dirt when he drops food, then picks it up -- if not rinsed after each meal, the mat is a huge fly party.)
Remove manure and wet sawdust from stalls and sheds.
Dampen shed floors to knock down dust
Shower Clara (because, otherwise, she won't go away)
Clara's shower then leads to this -
Okay - back to work.
Pick up manure in small paddocks and dry lots (the rest of the fields will be cleaned up this evening when the temperature starts to come down.)
Dump collected manure and dirty bedding in manure spreader
Finally, clean and refill water tanks and buckets
Meanwhile, the residents are all doing this:
As it should be.
They served us, now we serve them.
