I had a pretty exciting weekend, despite mother nature thinking we needed 5+ inches of rain in 48 hours. Luckily our property is at the top of a hill, so we didn't have to worry about flooding (or mudslides or tornadoes) like some in the surrounding area did!!
On Friday evening, I took Gamer on her very first trail ride!! We did just shy of 2 miles and she led a lot of the way. Not too bad for only her 4th time under saddle!! Gamer's 1st trail ride - YouTube
Saturday we spent trying to get chores done between thunderstorms. Woke up Sunday morning and figured we better get the boys out before the storms started up again. DH and I left the farm at 10am and it was already 78% humidity, so was like riding through a swamp. We took the boys over to check out the trails where all the logging had been going on. We were thrilled to see the logging is done and the trails are open again!!
Had been hoping to get Dream out today, but between the 2 inches of rain we got yesterday evening and the storm before it was even light this morning, there is standing water everywhere there can be. Guess I am stuck cleaning the house.
