Aw, Come On, Already!!

Not Again

Raining out. Enough to ruin my tack and soak me if I rode.

Plan was this. I had a rehearsal for tomorrow's solos in church in the AM. That was fine. Then I had two other jobs to do. One was to go get grain and the second was to mow the lawn while it was dry.

When I got home from rehearsal, I mowed the lawn. Good thing. It had dried out well enough and I did a decent job. But I still have a considerable amount of week whacking to do. I figured I'd get a bit done after the feed trip and then ride a little.

I headed for the feed store and on the way, it started to sprinkle. Fair warning. Got the feed and by the time I came home, rain. It may not continue so I will monitor it. If there is a break, I will at least lunge Tucker and Chance. Not quite what I had in mind, but some work. No point in tacking up only to get wet with the next passing shower.


  1. At least you got a lot accomplished even though the horses didn't get worked.
    Looks like we're going to get something soon, so it must be moving up this way. Hope tomorrow is better for you.

  2. I don't ride in the rain either. It's just not fun and besides it's not good for the tack to get wet. And, as Tetley lives out now, I would be putting a rug on a wet horse, not the best situation. With your retirement you will have so much more time to work around the weather.

  3. We had the rain too yesterday - but I can't work with Maisie until the vet clears us (I hope) on Tuesday - so I didn't mind as much!
