a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Poo Princess, Doo-Doo Diva, Manure Mistress

I am in my element, glory be!  A sunshiney day, a no hat, no glove, no coat day and I feel I am in heaven.  All of you were right...SUNSHINE was the cure, and poop.

I sit with a two liter Dr Pepper, swigging away, after I removed my manure dust-coated outer clothing.  I am so thankful to enjoy this day!

I spent my day in the barn.  The horses are not stalled, they come and go but while in the barn, they poop...a lot.  Since it has been so cold and I have been so lazy, it has waited.  No poop fairy came while I was asleep and cleaned the barn, it all waited on me.  It was glorius!
I am not being a horse's butt about the weather.
I just have to say, this was the cure and you told me!  A wonderful sunshiney warm day, oops, did I already say that?
I packed my bag with camera and pop, found a handy place to set them and went to work.  I shoveled, I raked, I shoveled, I raked and I smiled.  The most perfect theraphy I could have.
Look at all this wonderful, garden enriching, plant growing, free recycled feed!  Just laying there waiting for me to shovel and rake.
Yoda is training to be a stock dog.
Here's my proof, see horse hair and manure.
I even brushed my babies...they were so BIG!  I had forgotten I did not have miniature horses any more.  I snapped the camera at them.  I hugged and loved and brushed and they tolerated it all very well.

Nothing like a good day of physical exercise in the crisp air with the sun shining to take care of stale feelings.

We've had a nice two days about 60º with the sun out but the wind is still fairly constant and from the north.

Dirt (or poop, as the case maybe) therapy, does a body good:)

Toni said...

Gail, been beautifully sunny here all day too! The sunshine always makes me smile!!!

I'm laughing over the "Poop Fairy!"

Autumnforest said...

I just knew that was the cure! Hopefully it will get sunnier and sunnier for you. Otherwise, try to stay in a bright house, use sunlight coming through the window, and go outside whenever you can. You are an outdoorswoman, so you really should feel more yourself when you're out and about.

Gail we had sunshine all the dang day today too and hit a balmy 43 degrees. Did tons for my mood and oh my gosh a repeat performance tomorrow!

Rudee said...

I bet they were thrilled. I hope you send some sunshine this way!

So glad you're feeling better! Isn't it amazing what a little sunshine will do? Hugs!

Vickie said...

Congrats on a beautiful almost spring day! Even the poop smells great on a beautiful day, doesn't it??? Glad you got to get out and enjoy your day, Gail!

Pyatshaw said...

Yes, sunshine is a great lifter of the spirits!
Now, you may think I'm really weird, but I love the smell of horse dung! Cows'--not too bad but hens' and pigs'---YUK!

Gail, I think the poop fairy came to my farm and turned around really quick and fluttered off to another farm. She said "It is too much poop piled up in these barns and it's way to cold to scoop it." LOL!!!

I sure hope the snow will quit falling and lingering around here soon so I can get to that "freecycling" before garden season!!

It is amazing what we put our bodies thru when we have our first warm day of Spring. It sure is good for the mind but can be physically hard on an old lady like me!! Oh I just can't hardly wait for that day to come!!!
