Halters with ID tags everyone! Good luck down there.

No halters. ID tags braided and banded into manes. Starting to see some wind here.

I have ID tags for my equines, too....they say "My name is "x" - if I am lost, please call...and then three phone numbers, my name, and home address. $7 each stainless steel engraved. Best investment yet, next to microchipping and that's something else I'm considering.

Yes, no halters here. We don't want them getting caught in anything during storms. Ours are either microchipped or branded. And, we make sure that everyone around here knows our animals (we don't have many neighbors).

Ah the sound of a generator and a box fan.....

One of my horses got a nasty nose scratch, and they are bloated fat from standing in stalls gorging on hay. I've finally gotten the shepherd calmed down and the kids are arranged to sleep in the living room bc it will be cooler. My backyard is flooded but will dry.
I'm praying the water doesn't get to my brother in laws house, a dam broke near the river, and I'm afraid it will get him, he has flooded before.
I appreciate everyone's prayers so much. My firefighter and boyscout have us hooked up as well as possible. A window unit will keep us kicking till the power can come on.
Let me say, I'm so proud and appreciative of the people in my little town, and the utility workers- they are awesome!!

I hope everyone stays safe.
Sounds like this storm is only getting stronger as it is heading up the Gulf. :(

Well, it's about to hit us in just a bit. Nothing too bad, IKE was waaayyyyy worse.
They were forecasting 4 to 7 inches of rain but it's gone just east of Little Rock and we will miss the brunt of of it... OF COURSE. I'll take the three they are saying now though! Pleaaassseeeeee gimme at least 3!!!
My Uncle in Mississippi is in bad shape. Trees down everywhere, one fell on his well house, another on his power line and RIPPED the electric out of walls! Livestock is wandering around everywhere, total mess.

Hope you all down south made it out ok!!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?
