Its Raining, Its Pouring
and pouring and pouring some more.  We have a lake and where its not water it is mud.  Mercy me.  I would rather have cold and hard ground than this mess. 

When I put Sage out today she nuzzled my pocket when I let her go in the pasture.  Yes I had treats but she had not gotten any.  Yes, I gave her one it was so sweet.  Is she spoiled - the answer is of course Yes, I guess she is.

I have read the Wagon Teamster blog since he left on his first trip.  He had a bad wreck in Mississippi two or three years ago that killed some of his horses and nearly killed him.  He has currently been on trip four and was in Arizona.  He got rear ended in another wreck the other day.  His horses, nor him were injured but his trailer and wagon are.  So he called this trip over.  The horses are on their way to southern Oregon and he will be joining them when he gets back to Colorado to get his truck and a trailer to take them to Oregon also.  He met a lady friend there and is regrouping at her place.  I feel so bad for him. 

My back is better, not well but better.  I only took some ibaprofun this evening after I got dinner. 

I wonder how many pets we can have before they over take us.  This evening our grandson Skylor called and wanted to know if I could keep his cat for him.  He lives with his dad and can't have pets.  Of course I said yes.  So now we have a huge black cat named Moon.  Its a real menagerie.  Chrissy is looking for a new place where they can have River back.  I will be glad to let her go back to them.  I like her but she misses Chrissy.



  1. Ugh, the muddy season is so annoying! Luckily I have a huge covered arena and lots of covered tacking areas. But it's so annoying to be ankle deep in mud just to go get my pony! Such a bummer. Glad your back is feeling better though!

  2. Rain was overwhelming yesterday here, too. I remember your pictures from last year. EWWWWW! So sorry you get this every year.
    I read the Wagonmaster every day, too. I was sure glad he or the horses didn't get hurt in that collision but I'm so sad that he had to cut his trip short. I understand his logic and concern though, for the area he'd have to travel through and it was a sad, but wise, choice. He's such a nice guy and he brings much joy everywhere he traveled. I wish I could have met him....

  3. Nice blog of the Wagon Teamster. This is also a nice blog about a young man who is travelling with his horses from Canada to Brazil!
    Greetings Ad

  4. Hadn't heard of that blog. Sounds like maybe it's time to call it quits...too many cars and too many uneducated people for horses to be on roadways. Hope he gets ok.
    RAIN and WIND - welcome to my world! We've been having both "in spades" for the last several days. I hate rain and I hate mud. *sigh* We've had between 2-4" in the last 24 hours and right now we're in the calm between storms. Another is coming in tonight - oh boy!
