Rain Arrives

And Comes the Cooler Weather

Would have been a nice day to ride temperature-wise, but not so with the rain.

My farmer neighbor and I went out to set stakes with depth markers in the flooded area before the water starts flowing back in so we can monitor it. Because of at least a month of very dry weather, we were able to walk into the center of the trees where most of the water collects and put a monitoring stick. Now, at last, I will have a fairly accurate way of recording just how deep the water gets over the winter.

Needless to say, I didn't ride. It was a bit too soggy.

At least I did something useful.

The Boys are making use of the run in shed on the west side of the barn. When I went out for the late night feed, it appears that all three were under the roof. Tucker was partially inside Chance's stall which opens to the shed. I guess Toby and Chance were sharing the outer portion.

Nice to see them all clumped little happy herd.
