Woke up at about 3:00 am this morning to the sound of a rain. It appears to be the soaking rain we needed. The mares, foal and yearlings would like to thank all of you folks to the north for sending your surplus moisture this direction. It looks like the Acadians on the list can put their rain dancing shoes on the shelf for a while.
In this photo Buzz is being sprayed by Billy with a garden hose. After Billy sprayed them for about 15 minutes the ground was fairly muddy . They noticed and pawed at the mud splashing each other. You can imagine they will have fun later this morning when we turn them out. Maybe I'll get a good shot to send along.
I noticed that some of the soybeans were turning a bit yellow. One of our neighbors just bought replacement seed for his rice field. He has a few acres of rice to entertain his crawfish. Hopefully all the soybeans and rice in the area were able to get a nice long drink.
