A Little Late

April showers...

bring November headaches.

Don't get me wrong.  I'm not complaining (ok, I sort of am), but it would have been nice to have all this rain...say..in JUNE!?!?

I feel really bad for the horses.  When it started raining, it was almost 70 degrees out--way too hot to put their waterproof blankets on, and now that they are all wet, I can't put their blankets on as the liners would get wet and make the horses even colder than they are, so unfortunately they have to tough it out tonight.

Never mind the fact that they have destroyed a brand new bale of prairie hay in two days, smashing most of it into the mud, rendering it inedible.  Never mind that they have $8,000 worth of custom-ordered, brand-new shelters available to them.  Instead they choose to stand out in the cold rain.  All money well-spent.

Swine horses.

You can make a horse a shelter but you can't make him stand in it.
