So the other weekend we set about to create a small feeding paddock for Francie, so she would be safe even if I had to leave her for a bit (and I wouldn't have to worry about the electric fence).
This paddock is really handy too because I can run while she eats and digests, and by the time I get finished and changed into riding clothes, she is ready to go and I don't have to catch her again. She still continues to be a little tricky to catch.
Hoping to complete a few more horse-related projects over the winter months. I love getting things accomplished!
