Hi all. So, i'm currently 18 weeks pregnant with my first. Working quite well as my comp horse is out of action for now and needs at least 8 months off. I'm totally gutted about this as spent a fortune on him and he's young but slowly i've come to terms with his injury. Anyway, i'll prob start bringing him in this weekend over night. Honestly how difficult will I start to find mucking out etc as the winter goes on? I've invested in decent bedding and rubber mats and extra long mucking out tools etc. Auto drinker in stable so dont need to worry about lugging water. I'm due on 19 march so he is likely to still be in then. Will I be able to do him until I give birth? He's very easy to do, excellent in stable. Can be a bit of a pratt to bring in but nothing major. What do you think? How hard will I find it? I'll just add i'm used to doing at least 2 or 3 all winter on diy and keeping at least one comp fit so this year will be the first where I only have one and he's out of work.
