I am praying for rain. If it happens, I am letting my pony out to play in it. Hahaha

I have washed my car and watered the lawn. I'm hoping it's enough to entice the rain gods. Of not, anyone want to plan an outdoor party with no rain contingency plan?

Sounds good. We should make it at the lake. Just for that extra "umph"

We have rain here in Katy!!!!

Heres hoping y'all get some of it too. My two ladies are having a ball and NONE of the horses are under shelters...they're all soaking up some much needed moisture!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Earlier today I was sitting on the patio and kept hearing what I thought was thunder in the distance. Then I just realized my neighbor was pulling a big seed/fertilizer trailer with her truck around her pasture. She has more faith in the weather than me. I'm not going to put my rye out until late October - early November. The fire ants will carry it off at this point.

But here just a second ago, my youngest came back in from the doggy door (that is her gate to freedom to the back yard) and told me big drops landed on her arm. I will have to go see for myself to believe it. She was playing with the dogs - it might just be spit.

Glorious rain!!

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Trying to spit a little rain here and there. Need more!

Took dog to vet. He's been limping for awhile, took him a month ago, they have me some anti-inflammatories, said bring him back if he's not better. They didn't do anything. Took him back, they xrayed him. He has arthritis. He's not even 3 yrs old yet! Gave me some glucosamine/chondroitin and Omega 3/vitamin supplements, hopefully to help prevent further erosion. Don't want to put him on stronger stuff daily because it can cause liver problems, have to do monthly blood work, and he's so old. $250 down the drain... he's worth it, but I could have use that money.... on my horses! Lol

I have ridden every horse on this property today trying to get a ride in before they supposedly get a few days off from the rain. Then after my girls got home, we saddled up again just because we figured as soon as we got them all saddled, it would start pouring. Well, we got our ride in, and no rain yet. The radar looks pretty though. Here's a shot of us. And hey, that second pic is what my backyard looks like due to the many weeks of drought. It's also what my pastures looks like. I literally freak out every time the horses come flying in for their dinner. I have visions of broken legs and flipping horses.

And no, my hands will never be used to model in infomercials.
