and i certainly don't want to seem ungrateful BUT...the pond is full and so is the well and i really wish it would stop raining quite so hard. there is no way i can put the barn animals out in this monsoon, and i don't think i can leave them all in the barn all day either (it is comfy but slightly cramped right now.) the dogs walk to the open doors. have a look at the down pour and go back inside to find somewhere else a little drier to piddle. and i cannot find my rubber boots, which i really happen to need today so i guess i better go and buy another pair too. does anyone know if it is supposed to slow down a bit anytime soon? i wish we had a covered riding ring, then i could toss those barn guys out no matter what the weather!
