I’m tired, working two jobs and doing ranch repair from the snow storm has taken its toll. Pam, bless her heart, took one look at the budget and me and said “Quit the part time job”. She didn’t have to tell me twice. I took the weekend off to rest and gave a two week notice. The wife’s happy and the horses are thrilled. My idea of rest is sitting in the bench swing with Pam while Shar and Mattie stand behind us, reaching over our shoulders for treats. Pam loved it when Mattie just rested his head on her shoulder. I enjoyed fixing fences and repairing hot wire. The south pasture is now open much to the delight of the carrot crew. The west pasture still needs more repair but is horse safe so I opened it as well. The “Be” pasture is the only pasture not ready for horses yet. I had lots of Mattie and Trooper help, Shar supervision with an occasional visit from Quasi. I’m really looking forward to getting my weekends back. All grey horses are still rolling in the mud while the brown ones roll in the grass. LOL

They all look so happy, but Quasi especially so!
What did you figure out for the new shelter/ barn? Was your insurance helpful?

The insurance agent was great and the settlement was more than fair.  When the mud finally dries, I'm going to work on the shelters.  The fence repair takes precedent and I'm currently repairing and replacing the electric fence chargers.  Four out of five pastures are now open and the herd is very happy.  I have a ton of downed limbs and a couple of whole trees to deal with as well.  At least I have some time now.
