And onto the next project.......

Now that the pasture is finally done, Ive started working on the pasture the girls have destroyed over the past 3 1/2-4 months.

 Pasture seed.

Working with the tools I have on hand and trying to re-seed everything they have turned to dirt, and overseed where grass is coming back in... Its quite the task with just a rake, hose, wagon, wheelbarrow and a great use for the bermuda hay they refused to eat over the winter months.

Day one, yesterday, they were both super curious. And they both decided the bermuda hay that they wouldn't touch past the first nibble all winter was suddenly super yummy, and that the little bags of seed was actually  their feed, and that my water bottle was supposed to be their new water source, and that my every move needed to be supervised and inspected by a horse.

Fortunately for me and their future grass needs, they got bored and wandered away after about an hour. After Sierra rolled on the freshly raked soil and Litta almost opened a bag of seed. Silly Mares :)

While I was hand raking a horse pasture- which, by the way, is not something I ever thought I would be doing- I got to thinking about all the hard working people I have known in my life, and wishing they were allllll here to help out. I think I will be done by the end of the week, should be anyways. Though I may run out of old hay before then.
