I'm an amateur equestrian with a passion for Iberian horses and tack hoarding tendencies.
Oh dear. This is what I have to look forward to once the 38" of snow we have finally melts.
Yeahhhhh. This was already fully saturated clay soil, then 6" of snow, then more rain. And plenty more in the forecast 🙄 oh well. At least I wasn't seriously planning to show any time soon! Lol
And to think, I was afraid we got spring rain too early in the year and we'd hit the summer dry spell... that's how often it has rained! Well things will be back to soppy now with our 7 or 8 inches of snow.
I hate to complain, because yesterday FB's "On This Day" had me complaining about how muddy it was in 2012 -- which ended up being a horrible drought year for us! But like.... I've had to swap boots three times already this week because the mud is so deep it comes over the top of my boots 🤷 so much precipitation!
sigh. i keep telling myself it'll get better eventually! but man, i'm kinda in a hurry, spring, let's go!!
Every year I spend some time in a phase panicking because "it could never possibly dry up again!" but ya know, it always does. This too shall pass. (I hope)
Oh dear. Well at least it's not snow. Right?
I mean, at least when it snows it's typically cold enough that the mud is frozen instead of sucking off my boots when I try to walk? 🤷😂
I keep trying to come up with a positive spin for all the rain, but I just can't :( Our arena looks similar to this in SC!
We actually had less than average precipitation this winter so all this rain is helping us catch up (which long term will be good for farmers, and me, since we work for our hay)..... But right now all I can do is be sad about the mire of quicksand that is basically our entire property. Blah 😒
Yuck!!! Rain is the worst.
I mean... At least it's not ice? 😐 Mostly I just want to live somewhere where it's perpetually 70 and sunny, however unfeasible that might be 😂 ahhhh well. It'll dry out eventually. Or it will rain so much the earth floods and we'll die -- problem solved either way 😉
Still can be a bummer, send it our way, we've had such anemic rain in Socal it's bumming me out!
I would be happy to share!! We're getting more today, so I'll think "go west" thoughts.
Looks like my place, but I’m on sand. They better not put us on drought water restrictions this year!
Timehop keeps reminding me the last time I complained this much about rain in March, we had a severe drought that summer 🙈
Water training is the new hot thing? #lookingforasilverlining #atleastitsnotsnow
No, the snow is coming this afternoon 😱
