STILL no rain here. So weird. Our little town of Trenton is "maybe" a mile north of my house, and they have huge standing puddles from rain yesterday afternoon. My house didn't even see a drizzle. How can there be such a difference with less than a mile between the two areas??? I hope we get something before this system is outta here. My rye field could sure use it. Still very muggy here too. You'd think we all lived in different states the way we report such different weather outcomes. LOL!

It has drizzled here all weekend. We fenced the horses off in a corner with a round bale and threw out some rye. I hope we get some more rain during the week ...

We finally got some here in Lubbock. 1 1/2 inches so far. Would come 36 hrs after I put out a new round bale. My hubby was at dirtbike lease around Turkey Texas and they got 5 inches today and it was still raining when he left. Said county road that is mostly sand had water up to his truck bumper. He just got a new F150 Platinum and said he wished he had taken my Duramax today. Planning on camping and riding on our friends ranch that is also in Turkey. Hope the roads to the ranch are a little dried out by then so I can get my truck and trailer in. Our anniversary is this weekend and we got married under a chuckwagon on that ranch so it is such a special place to us. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Hope the cowboys win

Enjoy that 3 yr old while he is young. Mine will be 21 next month and he called me the other day to tell me he was remembering when I paid him a penny a rock to pick up rocks in the arena. He informed that was just wrong but he admitted he had fun.

My big foxtrotter has a good solid inch plus of hair all over his body and my welsh is pretty hairy, too. Seems a bit early for such a heavy coat already so that tells me we are going to have a long, cold winter.

Anyone else have extra hairy horses already?
I noticed yesterday my mare is starting to hair up a little earlier this year. No clue why??

Local honey from the area you live in helps. One teaspoon a day. I have been doing this for years no matter where I live and have not had to fight the allergies. My husband thought I was crazy and when we were living around the dallas area he did it and he is now a believer. Now back in west texas both of us have less problems with allergies.
