Since I bought Lucy, the amount of laundry I've had to do has increased drastically. Not only that, but I find myself washing my NICE clothes because they have hay/slobber/dirt ground into the fabric. I mean, we all know that barn life is supremely glamourous, but despite my best attempts to separate barn attire from work attire, the two inevitably blend together.
Of course it's going to get much worse once the weather warms up. At least now I can wear my riding pants several times before they need to be washed because it's so cold. Once the warm weather comes, though, it's only once or twice that I can wear something before it needs 30 minutes in the washing machine. Add to that the saddle pads that need cleaning on a weekly basis and that is a lot of extra laundry!
All I can say is that I love OxiClean. That stuff is magical.
Also, it turns out we won't be moving in March because the stall that the barn owner was planning on becoming available apparently is not going to be open. Bummer.
