Mud Room

We've apparently had some pretty incredible amounts of rain while I've been away as evidenced by the mud pit that seems to be at both barns. Of course Wilbur has had a few showing in the past few days- his trainer may have referred to him as a "swamp thing," likely not fondly since she's the one having to prep him.

I'm feeling fortunate to have a basement that I can tromp into and discard my nasty boots after a barn visit! How do you manage the "messiness" of the winter months?

  1. I didn't know that Cali houses had basements

  2. It's actually a ground floor- a garage, laundry room, and storage! I call it a basement out of habit- Midwest roots :)

  3. Muck Boots and a blue ikea bag to stash them in are a lifesaver :)

  5. I have only one pair of muddy boots that reaches my house. And they get taken off at the doorway. I don't even have an entry way/hallway let alone a basement. My riding boots live at the barn and I change in and out there.
