Things Your Barn Manager Will Never Say in Summer
Day after day we see a weather forecast with highs in the 90s, and next week it's going to get to almost 100°f. Perfect if you plan to sit around a swimming pool with a cold beverage. Not so perfect if you happen to be a barn manager.
If you board your horse be sure to thank your barn manager and barn hands for all their hard work in all weather conditions.
Below is a lighthearted look at just a few things you will never hear your barn manager say in summer.
- Oh goody, another scorching hot day ahead.
- I think I'll ride at noon today instead of 7:00 a.m.
- I'm so glad it hasn't rained in over a month. The straw-like grass is so beautiful.
- I love global warming.
- No, I'm not looking forward to fall.
- I love mucking stalls when it's really hot. Makes me think I'm in a sauna.
- Changing clothes two and three times a day makes me so happy.
- I don't think I'll shower tonight.
- Think I'll call in sick today.
- This fly spray really works.
- Hat hair is the best. Wet, hat hair is even better.
- I love my farmer's tan, especially my pasty, white feet.
Here are a few of the must-have products that help me get through the summer.
- Yeti Rambler 26oz tumbler keeps drinks cold for hours.
- Neutrogena Sunscreen Spray. Easy to apply, even to your back, and doesn't feel greasy or heavy.
- Air King Enclosed Motor Fans keep the barn and the horses cool. They are more powerful and safer than regular box fans.
Taking care of horses is a labor of love and looking forward to some cooler weather is what is currently keeping me going.
