I'm so sorry for the flooding in the Colorado area right now. Breaks my heart. You are in such a tough place right now.
We had flooding a couple years ago. My horses were in a pasture with run in shelters. We did not have a barn. We were in the same situation with six inches of mud, at least! Their hay had to be thrown in the pasture and I would try to make it through this to get it there with my hips literally popping out of their sockets when my feet would get stuck. I almost gave up horses after that.
Our only semi-safe haven was our arena. It was the only thing on the grounds that was not under water. It had puddles, but was sand, so at least it would attempt to dry out fairly quickly inbetween the rain spells. I would take the horses there and clean out their feet and let them breathe.
You just have to keep trucking along the best way you can. Chin up and my prayers are with you guys over there.
