A side from my five days a week of running, I also do chores 7 days a week.
Chores in the winter and summer are very different here on our hobby farm.
A day of winter chores for me looks like the following:
2 five gallon pails of grain to the pigs once a day (100 feet)
2 five gallon pails of water to the pigs once a day ( 250 feet)
1 five gallon pail of water to the chickens once a day (250 feet)
hauling the 100ft of hose from the basement out to water horses once every other day (300ft)
I don’t count the food I lug around for the chickens as it’s not that far.
The thing to remember is I do this with insulated coveralls, winter jacket, winter boots, mitts and toque. Through the snow and mud.
I also ride my horse on days that I find warm enough.
Hauling hose daily to all the animals. The nice part about this is the hose is already outside, and I just have to drag it around the different parts of the farm.
Cleaning out barns
Planting garden then pulling weeds daily
Riding my horse whenever I have the chance.
Picking up dog dodo.
Tending flower beds
I love farm life and I am always looking for ways to make doing chores more of a workout. If I can spend the time outside doing chores instead of being in the house sign me up.
Some days I would love a day off and we do go camping in the summer and have someone look after the farm, by the second day I am missing my animals, my space and my quiet.
