That means ponies are stuck inside. And to make matters worse, the water is seeping into the barn stalls. Fortunately, the stalls have not flooded, like they did at the barn where I leased last year. That was bad! Unfortunately, Shyloh's stall seems to have the worst water seepage, but it is not pooling, just damp.
|Praying "rain rain go away"|
My work was kind enough to let me leave and go make sure Shy was not floating down the road. I packed in extra sawdust pellets around the edges of her stall, Ryleigh's stall, and Casi's stall so they can soak up water. I can't stand the thought of Shyloh standing around on damp bedding. Ugh. . .so bad for her hooves! I hope the sawdust soaks up the water until stalls are mucked tomorrow.
I let out Shy and Ryleigh to stretch their legs in the arena. They had a fun run! It took a little persuasion to get them going, but they needed to get moving!
Then they just hung out and walked around for a while, following each other like they always do.
|Butt sniffer :)|
|They love long walks on sandy arenas|
I wanted to hop on Shy bareback again, but there was no one at the barn and I did not want to get on by myself. Maybe later this week. So I groomed her and took her mane and tail braids out. Her hair is so silky smooth!
|No rides for you today :(|
I let Casi out in the arena, too!. That horse can run! And he is fast! He has the prettiest trot.
The rain is so bad that when I was driving home from the barn, there where whole sections of road where the water came past my tires! When will it end?
