Well, the rain has finally stopped, the sun is shining, and maybe, just maybe, I'll be back in the saddle by Saturday. After yesterday's monsoon, I expected the arena to be completely under water, but I was pleasantly surprised by the footing today. Don't get me wrong, there's no way I could actually ride in there, but it was less soggy than I expected. My theory is that it was already so saturated with water that the rain we got yesterday simply flowed away.
Behold! The swamp!
Many, many puddles.
Lilly is bored out of her mind, but she's doing her best to stay busy by playing with the boys across the fence, snacking on tiny pieces of grass, and getting rid of itchies by rolling in the mud.
Behold! The mud monster!
Come on sun! Dry up the arena so I actually have something worthwhile to post about!
