We've gotten 5" of rain in the past week so everything at Twin Mill is wet, but the pastures are green.

Pasture herds will be in with hay on the weekends and building up time on the pasture during the week as footing allows.

The herds are enjoying a little bit of pasture time daily as long as the footing is good.
Approximate times:
Geldings 9:30-11:00
Mares 11:00-12:30

Please graze horses ONLY in the pastures. We will be trying to control weeds around the barns and arenas and grass may be sprayed.

The gelding herd was turned out into the pasture for a couple of hours this afternoon to welcome 2 new members, Archie and Valentine. In the spirit of fairness, the mare herd enjoyed a couple of hours in the pasture as well.

Tomorrow we will be treating for weeds so the herds will be in until the footing is good and the grass is established.

Snow, snow, go away!

With snow falling and precipitation in the forecast until noon, stall horses will stay in with hay this morning and be turned later.

The pasture is greening up quickly and grass is growing so when the footing dries out enough the herds will be able to enjoy it. They are eating up the last of the round bales and we will start feeding square bales in the fence feeder to supplement the grass.
