Over the years it has been a source of wonder to me how horses can always manage to find the one thing in their world that can cause them to hurt themselves.

But I have to confess, up until this happened to me 20 years ago, I had never  thought that wheelbarrows posed a danger. Mountie, an old school horse we had, proved me wrong and thanks to him, we have a simple solution so that it never happens again.

    One of my favorite barn rules!!
    Anytime I drive past a farm with a wheelbarrow just sitting in a field, it drives me nuts! I think I always say something out loud to whoever is in the car with me!

    Excellent video on barn safety! I hate to admit it, but I have walked into one of those wheelbarrows, caught between the handles and looking like a fool! If it’s not that, I’ve stepped on a push broom facing the wrong way and getting bonked in the head! If this was a horse, imagine how spooked he would get and how possibly dangerous it could be for the handler.

    Oh ya, welcome back Pat!! Reality of winter now sets in!! LOL!!
