A neighbor said we have had nearly 5".
I grained the horses and turned them out while I cleaned stalls and set them up again.
By 10 they were soaked and back in their stalls.
Phoebe went back to the porch, but not Little Wonder. He stuck it out in the barn for awhile and got soaked by the time he went back to the house. He is quite a trooper and has learned how to behave around the girls.
I made an apple pie this morning.
Just one of those days that made me want to hunker down by the fire and get cozy.
Phoebe was all about napping....
and Little Wonder wanted to play.
Eventually he gave in and slept. He is growing and now weighs about 14 1/2 pounds.
His brother's (Bug) owner had a DNA test done to determine his breeding...which means I now know about Little Wonder's background. He is a Yorkie/Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie with mixed breed (which included many from the Terrier group).
I was really thinking he was a Yorkie/Schnauzer.
Does not matter to me, and I don't care how big he gets!
At 3:30 we went out to the barn. Phoebe continued napping.
This wheel barrow was next to the porch roof on Gary's barn and it was overflowing.
I turned the horses out and cleaned the stalls.
Even tho is was still raining, they wanted to get out in the pasture.
It's very interesting to me, that they prefer to get wet...
when they have hay bags under the shed roof.
The temperature was around 55.
The outdoor arena is so flooded I had to dig 3 small ditches to try and drain it before it backs up to the barn.
Karen arrived around 5 to do evening chores.
Gary was all about having a fish fry, so we went down to the Bergen Family Restaurant for dinner.
Time to put on some PJs and get out by the fire.
