Rain! So much rain! I know it is much needed, so I am not really complaining, but if it continues, I am going to need to use my kayak as my chief method of transportation.
Shyloh is completely un-bothered by the rain. So much so, that she continued to eat her dinner hay in a massive downpour, even while the other horses opted to take shelter.
|Proof that Shy is not sweet and made of sugar. . .|
Yeah, my horse is THAT hungry. . .
|Clearly she is not melting|
I did attempt to brush her (why? I'll never know) but realized it was futile after a few strokes. But I did pick her feet, which are water logged. Since Shy was so wet and so stinky and a little dirty, I just put her back in with the herd and observed her.
|She looks so terrible, but with a super clean mane!|
Shy sniffs puddles before walking in them. . .can she smell how deep they are? I think some of the dripping rain was annoying her because she would swing her head back and pin her ears, but no other horses were around her.
After Shy finished her fill of hay, she decided to take cover. As she walked into the other horses already in the shelter, she pinned her ears and they all moved over. Shy took the spot she wanted and settled in for a post dinner nap. What a brat!
|Apparently that is the best spot in the shelter.|
So why was I at the barn in pouring down rain and a flood watch? Because I had the cart guy coming down to bring me some new wheels! Woot woot! He put them on the cart for me, too. He said he was surprised by what little damage was done to the cart. Tomorrow, the frame is supposed to get welded back together and we are good to go. Except for the me part. But I'll get there, one day.
|Should have got spinners. . .next time. . .|
