Our property is an icy wet mess. Not fit for equine, canine or human. Our horses are stuck inside for a second day, and their vet appointment is tomorrow morning. Great. The indoor arena helps, but it is not remotely the same as turn out.
The reality is, we need another pasture. A flat one, even if small. We also need another gate entrance to the existing pastures, where water/ice doesn't pool. While I am at it, we also need a second walk in shelter. Our girls need to be have a place to take cover from elements. It never ends!
I took a video clip yesterday morning that starts at the top of the pasture (gate is behind shed) and ends at the butterfly garden. With pasture water rapidly flowing across part of the garden :(
I thought the entire garden was raised enough to stay above our annual Spring thaw. Thankfully the corner section under flowing water had the least amount of plants. Mostly annuals. Guess those reseeded flowers will come up somewhere else?! Will be interesting to see how/if the garden survived. Or not.

I decided it was a good day to immerse myself in a tropical atmosphere. Post to come.
