I spent several hours mucking the dry lot my mare lives in on Friday and am STILL feeling the effects today Unfortunately it’s not dragged/scraped as much as I’d like (in fact, I don’t think it’s been done at all in the last six months since we arrived).
Because the pros of boarding here still outweigh cons, I’m willing to pitch-in and help keep the place tidy and manure-free to some degree, but can’t be doing this manual labour on any kind of regular basis … it’s exhausting! If it were just one mini it wouldn’t be too bad, but she’s not the only one that lives out there.
Given I’m training my girl to drive, it occurred to me that perhaps I could use her on occasion to drag the area instead. I’m reluctant to spend too much, however, because paddock maintenance is beyond my pay grade (of nothing)! Are there any options out there for under $150? I’d love something narrow enough (24" or so) to pass through the groves of trees that are in there. Any suggestions?
ETA: For context, my farm-operation and harrowing knowledge is NIL!
