Finding The Perfect Sports For My Personality

I have always loved to get outside and enjoy a little fresh air, which is probably one of the reasons I was drawn to recreation and sports in the first place. However, I quickly realized that there were a few different things that made me a great candidate to play sports, so I started talking with different teams about joining up. After I joined a community kickball league, I really became close to some of my friends that played with me. This blog is all about finding the perfect kind of sport for your personality, so that you can feel great and stay active.

3 Tips For Making The Job Of Mucking Your Horse's Stall Easier

If you have recently purchased a horse and have them stalled at a corral, you may feel as though all you do is muck the stall instead of enjoying your new animal. If so, use the following tips for making the job of mucking the stall easier and faster.

Use Bedding Chips Instead of Straw

If you are using straw as your horse's bedding, the material is most likely making your job a little harder. Although straw is a traditional bedding material, it tends to soak up urine and hide manure piles. When you muck the stall, you have to spend more time sifting through the straw to ensure you have fully cleaned it.

Instead of straw, consider using bedding chips instead. The chips provide a soft, firm bed for your horses while making your job of cleaning up after them easier. The chips do not shift and hide the waste, allowing you to easily see what must be picked up.

Lay Down a Tarp for Waste While Mucking

If you are currently leaving a wheelbarrow at the entrance to the stall for manure and old bedding, you are probably making a lot of trips to fill it up. Instead of walking back and forth with your pitchfork and shovel, lay down a tarp to collect the waste while you are working.

When you first start mucking the stall, clear out the space towards the center of the stall. Then lay down the tarp on the clean area. As you muck the stall, go in a circle around the tarp, depositing the manure and bedding onto the tarp. Then, when you are finished, drag the tarp to the wheelbarrow. 

Pile Fresh Bedding along the Outer Walls

Depending on how often you clean the stall and how much waste your horse produces, you will have varying amounts of bedding that will need to be replaced. If you are currently carrying the bedding in from the storeroom, you may have to make several trips in one day to replenish it.

Instead of making multiple trips each time you muck the stall, pile fresh bedding along the walls for later use. When you are finished mucking the stall, simply spread what you need on the floor, leaving the rest of the pile for next time.

Using the above tips can make your job of mucking out your horse's stall easier so you have more time to spend with the animal. For more tips on taking care of your horse and their stall, speak with the representative from the corral at which you are boarding them for further information and guidance.
