Shoeing at a Social Distance II, Amendment To Protocol

Horsekeeping

Lucky enough to have a horse.

 

Awareness of the outside world. It goes over the nose.

Most of the 2020 shoeing routine remains as it was. Money left on a stool. Horse left in crossties. Assistant holds horse. [Shoeing at a Social Distance]

I have added a mask to wear when I am in that half of the barn. To switch horses. To scoop poop.

Do I think there is a high probability of contagion from a few minutes of arm’s length proximity in a well-ventilated, semi-outside space? Nope.

Do I want to risk the faintest chance of transmitting the disease to my blackmith’s elderly & ailing parent? Nope.

Mask on.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
