Feeding Time

Length of time to make horses dinner.
Soak beet pulp - 12 hours
Wash out buckets in icy water  -  1min
Warm hands up again as they have frozen to feed bucket - 5min
Curse at feed bag string because it’s not doing that lovely satisfying pull through the top of the bag but instead is getting tighter -  5min
Find scissors  - 10min
Trip over buckets on the way back with scissors and hurt your knee -  2min
Open feed bag with scissors but try to make it look like you opened it by pulling the string  - 2min
Mix feed with soaked beet pulp and supplements -  1min
Wrestle veg oil bottle off the dog who is licking the lid and doesn’t want to give it back -  1min
Mix veg oil in with feed -  1min
Bring feed out to yard and feed horses  - 10min
Go find torch so you can see hay in hay shed, load up wheelbarrow with hay and bring back to horse who’s now kicking empty feed bucket around -  5min
Hay and change water in stables – 10min




Length of time to make my dinner
Boil kettle, pour into pot noodle, too exhausted to wait and just eat half softened pot noodle – 2min

I’m doing something wrong here?
