Ok I have ordered the lumber and the animal fodder, anyone want to help build an Ark???
It is so wet here, the weather says we will have an inch and a half of rain, in 24 hrs, before it slacks off....yes slacks off doesnt quit, this afternoon! (((sigh))) My poor horses are going to have to grow flippers and gills pretty soon! Check out the lower pasture this morning.
Wet, wet, wet, the lower pasture is part of a drainage that goes, through the neighbors and under the road, to the river, at least it stays down there! there is probably a 10-12 foot drop, or more, from the house down to the lower pasture, so glad!
This is my morning greater, her and Emma talk to me when I am walking out to the barn.
They were a little mad at me for taking pictures instead of feeding them, LOL, Mickey was talking real quiet here to me, come on Mom we are hungary! I love Easy's snotty look, she acts tough when she is in her own stall LOL, she is the bottom of the totem pole.
Ah, breakfast, silly old mare, hasnt much lower teeth, she drops half her grain, as you can see. Wet or dry she dribbles it all over. I usually try to get her hay around the grain pan so that it falls on the hay,(although I didnt get it so close this AM) so maybe she can eat more of it when she eats her hay. She looks great! Fat and sassy, she only gets 4 cups of Equine Sr., AM and PM, and one flake of hay, which she usually doesnt clean up. She is the messyist horse! She is one that has a race track in her stall, round and round, mixes her hay and poop, there is an acutal trail in her stall every morning.
Breakfast finally! LOL impatient old mare LOL Mickey is boss mare, she is always this shiney. I always feed them on the ground. I believe its healthier, its the way they were meant to eat.
And Emma was out in the field when I went out, whinnying to me as I am walking out.
This is the quagmire she has to go through to get in her stall. If you live somewhere dry, enjoy it!!! For 5-6 months out of the year we have pure unadulterated MUD. It is about a foot deep, as you can see by Emmas mud socks in a later picture. When the rain stops it does dry out fairly quickly, but in the mean time all the water sits on top of the ground. I have been lucky and they havnt had bad thrush problems at all, clean dry stalls over night, help with that and the rainrot, which only Easy has had a little of, but it is gone now. I used a little MTG and it cleared the rainrot right up.
Emma is so silly, the flash on the camera scares her and she jumps every time I snap a picture.
This shows that Appy eye though LOL
And she runs for the door, goofball. See the water running down her head.
I love her color, she isnt to much lighter this year than she was last year, she has been progressively getting whiter over the years.
Welcome to our soggy soggy world. Now back to working on that Ark.
Sometime soon it has to dry out so I can ride again, right? Now you can see why I havnt been riding. I could haul out to an indoor arena, but I havnt.
