We know you enjoy working around the barn and being near your horses, but sometimes it can be tough work, especially if it is lasting all day long. You most likely have a few other things you need to do, or you may just want to relax. That’s why we’re here to provide you with a few tips that can help you save time around the barn.
One of the most important things you should do is invest in high-quality tools. Having the right tools and equipment for the job can save you a lot of time and money in the longer run. From horse care products to barn cleaning equipment, trying to take care of your daily chores with old tools, or without certain pieces of equipment at all, can turn a simple job into a nightmare.
Of course, you just also have a set cleaning system and plan in place. If the order you’re doing things in right now isn’t working, don’t be afraid to change things up. Just find a process that works for you and stick with it. Practicing the same routine every day can help you speed up the entire process.
When it comes to feeding your horses, there are a few things you can do to save time. Place food into a wheeled cart and stop at each stall, rather than trying to carry food from one end of the barn to the next. You could also prepare meals ahead of time, and even install automatic feeders if you have the money and space.
Use this tips and you should be able to shave off minutes, if not hours, of your time spent each week doing chores around the barn.
