sounds so simple! I wish we weren't having massing flooding here :( the A7P by my dads is literally underwater and the highway has been closed since Mon with 2-4" more rain expected thurs - fri and evacuations expected to start thur midday if the storm goes as predicted as the rivers are already several feet above flood level into moderate flodding. This will put things into severe widespread flooding. Sucks. Even where I am 30 miles north at a slightly higher elevation is having flooding which is just insane.
Course I still need to get the geldings done, so worst case scenario I can do some limited turnout in my indoor arena where it's dry, pretty dust-free (we water it almost daily in the inclement weather and have awesome soft footing so there's almost no dust provided it's properly watered), and then they can move w/o dirt or as much of a risk of infection. Blech this weather is a mess.
Glad your gelding went well! :)
