When the grass stopped growing, I stopped lawnacizing. But, it turns out that I don't need to worry about losing muscle mass.
Our little corner of Ohio is in drought. That means, I've pulled the horses and sheep off of the remaining pastures and am feeding hay... which means I'm moving a lot of hay.
And, when horses and sheep eat hay, instead of grass, their water consumption goes up.
That means I'm carrying buckets of water.
Since it is September, the horses and sheep are growing winter coats.
Lily, the pony, is diligently growing hair to protect her precious asset.
The temperature is expected to exceed 90 degrees again today.
And that means the horses and sheep are going to need even more water.
I am trying to recruit others to my newest exercise program: Beth's Biceps by Buckets and Bales. Join me for workouts morning and evenings... and I'll even offer a special lunchtime session for the fitness diehards.
