Yesterday was my last day of work until January 3rd. Today I’m going to help Fred clean out the shed at the place the horses are going to stay. I hesitate to call it a stable, because it’s really just a large shed, but it’s got enough shelter to keep the horses out of the weather when necessary. To make room for two more horses in the shed, Fred and I have to clean out an accumulation of lumber and junk. It’s also possible that our horses will be brought today from the other stable; we’ll see.
The property owner has plans to build a real stable. Fred has told her that if she’ll just order the lumber and supplies, that he’ll do the construction. I’ve offered to pitch in and help, but I don’t know what the building schedule is. I may be spending many evenings and weekends over there with my nail gun and tool box.
