We got about 4 inches of rain in the past 48 hours. My paddocks are a mushy slippery mess. I spent some time after work yesterday between raindrops, shoveling and scrapping, trying to make a pathway for water to drain. We have a dip in front of the stall that collects water. The dip is from the horses coming in and out of their stall to their paddock. My husband is going to get some gravel and fill it in as soon as everything dries out as we think it will be a wet winter.
My daughter will be home for Christmas break, so I will head up the coast to Santa Barbara on Monday to pick up her horse and take him to a pasture in the Santa Ynez valley, where he will spend the next 12 weeks. My daughter is doubling her classes for winter quarter and won't have much time to ride. I would bring him home but I don't have a the extra stall at the moment. So he will get to enjoy his time off in a beautiful irrigated pasture.
