50 gallons

Yesterday, Blue destroyed a hay bag in one feeding.

Today, when I arrived at The Pen, I found he had dumped his 50-gallon galvanized water trough, creating an ankle-deep puddle in the lowest part of the pen.

Heather took one look and said: "That's a horse with too much time on his hands."

I agree wholeheartedly. Less than two full days until the cast comes off—then he'll have plenty to do.


  1. Have you thought about teaching tricks, just to keep his brain engaged? That's what I do when health/weather interferes with the stuff I'd rather do...

  2. Dang! I didn't think of tricks. We did some basic yoga and stretches, but I didn't think to try to get him to bow...
