Sunday afternoon/night we got a lot of rain here in Western PA. A lot of rain with a lot of lightning. Since Sunday, we've had another day of a lot of rain. Basically, it's pretty darn wet over here.
I went out Tuesday afternoon to ride anywhere that was dry enough to ride on... I doubted the outdoor would be dry enough to not be slick. I was going to investigate it... but I never got that far!
|Dressage Horse's Day Off: Ford a pond like it's Oregon Trail!|
There's a pond on the property that's usually small and we barely notice it.
|It overflowed just a little. The cat tails mark the normal border of the pond. Where Mikey and I are walking is usually grass.|
|These pictures are courtesy of Trainer's 8 yr old step son using my phone. There were many pictures that come out with fingers, but he did a good job!|
|Walking through hock/knee deep water. It's apparently belly deep closer to the cat tails, but I don't remember the lay of the land under the water well enough to go more than 5-10 feet from the fenceline.|
|Cantering through the pond in a less deep section.|
|Back out in his field, clean and almost dry.|
