Enough with the mud

Okay it's not straight!
At all...
 I finally got fed up with the mud, the horses' feet are wet and muddy, and while there is a dry patch, this just isn't fair to them. It's mid-December! The ground is supposed to be well frozen, maybe even a little snow.

So I got together a few step-ins and some tape & hopefully the cows won't test it. The horses can't go out into the big paddock because the big bales are still out there & they are still too fat.
 We'll keep this open to them for the whole winter if the fence will stay up, but it's really not very high Mads could step over it if he wanted.
Once it snows the whole thing may come down. When we replace the fences we've already decided we're going to expand the sacrifice area, this looks like a good amount of space.
Maddie is very happy to eat the "grass"

Megs went for a good little boot.
Took me about 20 minutes to wait for her
to settle so I could take her blankie off.
