you wouldnt think we were in a drought...

just thought id share some non horsey pics with you guys. We had some amazing rainfall last night which was so badly needed here it wasnt funny. When I got to the horses this morning, it looked somewhat like a flood zone out there so I took some pics and got some random video. Who knows when we will see this much rain again so I thought it good to get some shots.







This is where I have my jumps set up normally. They got washed away into the next property lol

I know! It's starting to rain a LITTLE bit more now in Vic. Enjoy the rain. I know when rain hits OLD, it hits HARD.

YOU LUCKY THING!!!!!!!!!!!
So jealous of you right now..........lol
Amazing pics, we really need rain at the moment, so badly, but we wont get any now till next yr, fire season has even come early for us!

So did you end up getting your jumps back?? Or does that mean that you own the next door neighbours property aswell coz your jumps were there?
Lol

ha ha I live on a property in echunga in the adelaide hills.
Its really unfair coz I know it rains, but the rain always seems to go around echunga and meadows area, but we are the hay cutters, so we needed it (ha not at the moment )

Not really looking forward to summer, now coz we are not forecasted for rain till next season now. Not much anyway.........
But then again who trusts the weather man????????
He he

ah ok! My mum lives in murray bridge these days :) not far from you, as the crow flies :)

That's what happens here a lot...we will see rain coming in from the west and think 'oh goody, its going to rain'. Next thing it takes a sharp detour and pummels the sunshine coast. Like they don't have enough water in their dams lol we are on level 5 water restrictions and the sunshine coast, only 45 minutes away, is on level 1 water restrictions and that's only as a pre-emptive measure grrrr lol lucky so-and-so's :)

ha ha that's funny.

Yeh we read around the place that the average dam capacity is like ov 65-70% and then we look out the windo and our dam is like empty and our neighbours 2 are under half.

Pretty rediculous.

They are awesome pics of your paddoks though!
