It has been pouring every few days here in South Central Texas and one of our stalls is pretty much under water, and the other is a mud pit except for a small area. The corral is like walking through submerged oatmeal. We have tried shoveling it all out but as soon as it starts raining again, we are back at square one. I have to keep my horses separated while I feed them or my gelding won't let my mare eat at all. So, we keep her in her semi less soggy stall until she is done eating and my gelding, I have been feeding in the turn out area. Sadly, this is sometimes in the rain. I guess I figure it is better than him standing in soupy mud. I have been checking for scratches and cleaning out their feet and surprisingly, no scratches OR thrush.
The water in their stalls has been seeping up from the ground as everywhere on our property is very squishy at the moment. I feel so bad for them right now, but have NO idea what to do. I was looking into something called a stall blanket but we can't spend that much money. We tried to shovel out a canal leading out to the lowest point out of the corral, but it just falls in on itself and clogs up the canal. Any suggestions, support or encouragement?
