And the rain continues!!
We are getting our April showers in May this year.
Any one with any sense around the farm stayed indoors yesterday as it poured.
Those of us who had to be outside looked like this...
Don't be fooled by those gals' sad expressions...
they have a very nice shelter where they can get out of the rain...
but no, they'd rather stand outside looking pathetic!
Perhaps Henri needs a rain bonnet!
Even Ginger and MaryAnn had no desire to go out in the rain,
and opted for room service.
I returned to the local greenhouse for just a few more essentials.
And planted 5 more flats of flowers... in the rain!
Don't be fooled by the innocence portrayed in this photo...
it was snapped just after 5 very naughty horses escaped
through an unlatched stall door and proceeded to run willy-nilly
up to our hay field!
They were in heaven...that is until Hubbs and I captured each one of them and marched
them right back home again.
Bad horses! (and bad me for leaving the stall door unlatched!)
It seems that even on a grey and gloomy day,
we have to have a bit of excitement around here!
It has been a while since I have shown you a picture of Pete (Becky's rescue).
He has put weight on quite nicely.
Isn't he handsome?
He's made good friends with her companion horses Ava (r) and Duffy (l).
(The three of them were quite excited as my five equines dashed up the road past them!)
Pete has turned out to be quite a lovely horse...
light grey with mahogany spots.
Well, we've had our share of rain and are quite eager for the sun to shine again.
But when that happens, we will have acres to mow and trim,
and weeds, galore, to pull!
PS....Edith is still on her nest and doing fine!
