another opportunity

We've been enjoying a solid week plus of riding in dryer weather, even during the recent heat, until a big storm rolled through the area dumping buckets of water. The good news is it cooled things off. The bad news is the small wooded pasture area doesn't drain correctly, the northwest corner floods, leaving us with standing water.





















We have only begun to remedy the situation. You may recall Brad and the boy who doesn't like horses recently started removing tree stumps leftover from the power line destruction. We have hopes of turning the open area into grass pasture. Believe it or not, it's already an improvement. We really don't ride much in that area anyways, for obvious reasons. Only one way to look at it in it's current condition, it's another opportunity to work with Koda and his muddy water crossing!

Water Hazard = great training opportunity!

The weather hear is horribly hot and very little rain. I can't wait to see what August has in store.

Did you guys get hit with all that rain in the last days? We lucked out up here, and we are still wet enough.

We did get hit pretty hard. Pasture flooded, ground water in our basement, garage door circuit board and satellite fried. We are still finding things no longer working. Nothing major, as long as they are only things.
