Chico has learned to be a clever little problem solver.
He’s been a bit timid at the horse barn lately – not wanting to go out to the field with me to bring in the horse. I’m not sure why, but it’s what we’re working with right now.
For a number of weeks, he’d go hide in the car when I went out to the field. Then I started blocking access to the car in hopes he’d come along. It worked some days, but not others. Last week, he came up with an interesting solution to his problem:
Mount Manure is my name for the pile of horse poo and bedding that accumulates outside the horse barn. A few time a year the manure gets spread on the pastures and hay fields to promote growth.
