Not Enough Hours! Week 6

It was tough fitting in the week 6 painting today! After feeding and turning out this AM I had 175 bales of hay to take care of - a morning workout when there are just three people, total. The usual stalls waited at home, and tonight I had to be out. As a result I'm posting a somewhat sketchier than normal painting of our girl. Sometimes it's good to only have so much time. All things considered, I guess it's not too bad!

This is 6 x 8 oil on linen.

I like the loose look and I agree definately never enough hours in the day :(

Were the 175 bales for you? I remember having to unload a semi-trailer of hay bales. Hay was short here that winter and we had to buy it from the north and truck it in. The cost was split and ended up at about $3 a bale.
Now I have trouble handling just one bale. Glad my only horse is boarded.

After all those years of taking care of my boys, I am too crippled up to do it. Glad you are able to as although it was tough, I never was happier.

Yes the 175 were for me, third load we've put up in a friend's barn. Just a fraction of what I go through in a year. I have limited storage. And paying $3.35/bale this year it's gone up! Anyway, I'm looking forward to visiting the chiropractor tomorrow!

Thanks for the comments, everyone.
