Dump yucky water and refill containers for horses. Move a goldfish from a clean trough to one with lots of wigglers (mosquito larvae).
As I placed a halter on the rack after yesterday's ride, the rack tore free of the wall. We were on the way into town for an appointment, so we had to take off, but I left word that I'd fix it in the morning.
This morning I headed out into the morning mist only to find that someone else had already fixed it, and cleaned up that corner of the tack shed.
Rather than turn around and head for home, I looked for some other way to contribute during the time I'd already set aside for my project. I greeted the yawning horses, then checked their waters. Some had run far enough down to be dumped (whisker droppings and all), and refilled. One of the largest troughs, however, had too much water for a complete rotation. It also had LOTS of mosquito larvae, so I transferred the goldfish from another trough into this one to do in in the bugs and make for one happy little orange fish.
Yes. Anything I can do to help. All my time out here feels so relaxing, and there's so much work to be done help is welcome and appreciated.
