It's two days until Spring.
(Can you believe it?)
And exactly two days and three months until the longest day of the year....
the first day of SUMMER!
AND.... Tim and Amanda's Wedding Day.
The list of farm chores that need to be accomplished over the next three months is daunting.
First and foremost....
everyone and everything is filthy from winter!
All of our equines will need a major make-over in the next three months.
And the barn...
Even our cobwebs have cobwebs.
Yesterday I bought myself an early birthday present.
A shop vac.
I bought the one that had the most horsepower (suction).
Now tell me, please....how does horsepower translate into a vacuum?
I understand horsepower when talking about engines.
Does 6.5 horsepower mean that there is as much suction as 6 and a half inhaling horses?
And what is a half of a horse?
Shouldn't it be 6 or 7 horsepower?
6 and a half horses?
Which half of the horse did I get?
The right or left?
The front or back?
Or is this what they mean by a half of a horse?
Well regardless, this little vacuum will be working quite hard over the next few weeks.
I plan to make the barn shine!
As for the equines.... they'll be clipped and shampooed and brushed.
Any possibility they'll stay that way?
About as much as half a sucking horse!
