Kind of Tired Day
Bit of a repeat of the intestinal thing....not serious, but enough to keep me cautious.
I did go get feed, though. I unloaded eight 50 lb. bags of grain and three 50 lb. bags of alfalfa cubes, so I got my exercise for the day.
Anyone here remember when horse feeds only came in 100 lb bags? That was the standard when I first started riding. I think a few of the feed stores used to open the bags and split them up for customers who couldn't handle the full 100 pounds. As I recall, bird seeds and chicken food--we had chickens back then--were also in the 100 lb. bags.
Somewhere along the way, the feed companies--at least the horse feed companies--realized that a lot of women cared for and handled horses and the 50 lb. bag became the standard. 50 pounds is still a bit heavy to lift, but I can manage.
Wonder if, as I age, the manufacturers will drop the standard weight to 25 lbs?
Or course, at the rate of inflation we seem to continually face, we'll still be paying the same per bag.......
