"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Scoopin' Poop

The project:
Scoop horse poop.

10 minutes

Why bother?
While our shared lease on the horse we're riding this month doesn't require us to do the everyday chores, it seems to me that's part of horse time. If you have a horse, you need to clean up after it, care for it properly. The woman who maintains these horses has more than half a dozen to deal with, plus lessons to give, her own family to care for, horses to train, oh, and a life to live. The poop needed scoopin' and it was my turn.

Worth it?
Yes - I even got a nice comment from another of the horsey folk out there while I was scoopin' away.
