Weekly Task Challenge: Snow Removal

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or just feeling stuck, try the weekly task as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more!)

The snow is still flying here in Northern New York and it looks like we are all in for a long winter despite the report of an early spring from Punxsutawney Phil. I don't know about you all but I have a ton of snow and removal is a definite issue. Not only is my driveway long (two tenths of a mile if you don't count the two circles), but it is akin to a one lane road, winding through the woods. Rick and I have had to take into consideration snow removal before erecting any new fencing or buildings (a little suprise we got the first year we lived here). There is just not enough places to put this white stuff (I even have to dismantle the round pen for snow and manure removal). Anyhow, you'd have to be here to totally understand. Suffice it to say, it is not always as easy as one may think.

This week's task is to think about snow removal at your place (or while you are planning your dream farm). What do you do now, what issues have arisen, what could you do better? Make a plan and share it with us in the comments section!
