    I've had my share of rainy country. I'm German
    So of course, keeping horses without drowning in mud is HEAVEN. I kinda miss 4 seasons, tho. If they'd come without too much rain...

    Ugh.. I totally agree with the mud. This is my first time owning a horse in Washington. Oh my god the mud... I can never keep him clean and he really enjoys rolling. I'm actually kind of lucky because he does try to avoid most muddy areas.

    We had 3 days of continuous rain this winter. My drylot turned into a wetlot with lake...about 2" of mud, for about a week. The " lake" remained for a while, soil is not draining there. But I completely freaked.....bad memories....

    We moved to Lemoore in 2010. That 2010/2011 winter made me almost give up horses up there! It rained for what seemed like 40 days and 40 nights straight. No sun....at all. The only dry spot was some new sand in the arena. We had to turn out the horses everyday there for there feet to get out of six inches of mud. Feeding was nearly impossible for us. No barn, only run in shelters in the pastures. My hips would pop out of socket when I tried to walk through the mud to give them hay.

    Then....when it started drying up?.....Oy, the mud turns into cement and sticks to everything. Don't want to ever revisit.

    I lived with these conditions and horses for years, but make that about 100 days......although I wouldn't expect that around here, lol

    I thought it was funny... It's not even summer. What a weenie, I warned him!!!

    WNW....normally it picks up around 2pm until 6, but it's been blowing all day today. Two good points, tho. Not as hot and no flyspray necessary...
