Plus a lot more in OK and TX and elsewhere this weekend – major flooding Saturday night and Sunday. Our road was blocked both north and south of our place and the north location had enough damage to require repairs.
Meanwhile, after some of his first clipping experience on Friday in the driving rain, Gman had Saturday off until Ivy worked him with Mallory’s help on Sunday in the dripping rain. He and his mama spent the weekend in the stall with the outside mares watching (Rosie and Quinn) or pestering (Alex and Indy). Bree and Lady were hanging in the other stall. Geronimo got his first taste of “lunging stage 2” with Mallory’s guidance. Considering he had been stall bound for 2 days and was still in the stall for the work, it went well.
I got a little equine therapy on Saturday when I scribed at a schooling show held at the Joyful Noise arena in Pryor. What an elegant facility. Hypoallergenic stalls, fabulous footing, beautiful grounds including way cool trail equipment. I would have liked to try a western dressage test but Splash was lame on the front right on Tuesday night. Probably tender from trimming on Monday, but he was still a little off on Friday. So, I scribed without riding. Since I wasn’t riding, the rain stayed away for the show. I am very good.
More rain expected tomorrow. Thank goodness. Its good for the corn and hay not so good for trail riding.
