So rainy

It's been so rainy here even the arena is mud. Driving a cart is almost impossible and I miss it. I haven't been out to the stable for 4 days because of the rain.

It is like that here, also, and one day on a break in the clouds, we hitched up the Morgan and drove him down the road.

Thankfully, now that I have some grass growing in my driving arena, it firms up pretty quickly. A couple of months ago, feet and hooves sunk about 6 inches!!

I am going to try to drive the pair this morning.

How did your drive go?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

We have had rain almost everyday for two weeks. I was going to harness up the mares and go for a drive to stretch their legs today but it is so humid, we all, human and equine, don't want to be in it!

Hoping the rain holds off so we can get hay, it is getting down to the hurry up and cut stage were running low.

well, rain prevented driving until today. Yesterday was beautiful and today was good too. we hitched up the surrey ( it has a top to keep the sun off) and gathered horseback riders and off we went. There were thunder storms to the north so the way the wind blows we went on ahead.
Hubby trotted Honey on the way back and we got about 400 yards ahead. As we got to the ranch gate, it started to rain. by the time we reached the barn it was a downpour. the poor riders came up and were drenched. We were under the surrey cover so relatively dry until we unhitched the mare. I poured rain for about an hour. we holed up in the barn with all the riders. A lightening bolt struck the barn's metal roof, startling all of us. we finally got out and came on home. Left the surrey in the wash rack and the tack on a rail in the barn to dry.

In spite of the storm it was a nice ride.

We finally got some nice weather for carting and I had a gallbladder attack!!! Darn. I had surgery last Thursday and am just now feeling less pain. I should be ready to go in 4 days but what will the weather do? Sigh....
