Spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the horses is?

Well, in Erin, Spring has NOT sprung, and our horses are hanging out in our ‘sacrifice’ paddock, making their way through the muck to get to their round bale and the water trough.

At Can-Am Equine Fair on the weekend, I came across an amazing product that I hope will help us to control the footing and reduce the muddy areas around our barn.  It’s called EcoRaster, and its a surface reinforcement system, that click together, and fills with pea-stone gravel.  It’s a sustainable plastic product (made from recycled plastic bags), and can hold a heavy load such as horse traffic and farm equipment.  For photos and a better explanation of how this works, go to their website at:  www.ecoraster-horse.com.
