Rain, Rain...Please Friggin' Go Away!!!!

It's literally been raining for days here, it's miserable!
We've literally gotten a whopping 15 inches of rain during
The week after having a dry spell for so long. What's worse
Is our poor horses are standing in mud and water that's
Almost flooded their pen, my grandpa said the rain in supposed
To move on out soon and he is going to expand the horse pen
Saturday, thank God...I know they are miserable as well. :(


I also started working with our colt one day when it stopped,
Raining and we mounted him for the first time without any
Problem and was led around on his back, it made me so happy,
But now it makes me sad because of the weather I can't work
With him, and he is doing so so well. :(


So who wants to help me build an ark?

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

I can't remember the last time it rained here.... Maybe this hurricane will send some our way... right now it's sucking all the moisture out of the air!

LOL Small town girl.....Up here in Northern Arkansas we are having a record amount of rain this year. We have over 45" of rain this year and that is usually our yearly average!!!! Its another soggy day up here too. :roll: I feel like I'm becoming half duck!

I'm hoping the weather patterns change before winter. It has been a few years since we have had the nasty ice storms that are so famous here. I hope we don't get them this year. I wouldn't mind a foot or two of snow though...lol...I'm from Iowa and I do miss the snow sometimes.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Yeah it's winter here & feels like it's been raining for months cause we haven't really had a dry weekend in months. Our bottom paddocks are pretty much swimming pools. Should take photos of our pools I did a great slip an slide the other day only to save myself by grabbing my horses neck cover yes dangerous but I would of been flat on my back in water & mud. He wasn't too impressed & I spooked him
