It is interesting how the lay out of the whole farm is evolving.  What was initially intended as the ACA (Animal Concentration Area) now has a grassy pasture in the middle of it and a paddock paradise like track around it.  What was originally intended as shelter for the back pasture has been now included in the ACA.  When we extended the riding ring to it’s original intended size the horses lost that part of their ACA which provided shade in the late afternoon and evening.  We decided to extend the ACA on the opposite side to incorporate the shed (at the back of George and Heather’s stalls) and the 2 shade trees.  The result is some very happy horses.
