Good Grief!

It has been raining for three days here. Pretty much solid... Everything and everyone on the ranch is sloggy. (Yes sloggy is a word - my daughter Andria made it up when she was little and didn't like her cereal in the milk too long - it's sloppy and soggy put together!)

We need the rain. Badly. But geez not all at once like this. It doesn't get a chance to soak in and do much good... There are a couple of dry spots on the ranch, a few of the minis have high spots under their covers that are still dry, and where we put up the carport to park my Jeep it's dry. And in the house! That's about it... luckily the foaling pen has a good spot too. Not totally dry anymore although it was yesterday... but not muddy or standing water! I'm hoping for a spotted jennet foal for Christmas but right now also hoping that Becky Lynn holds off for a few days!

Randy is in Vegas working all week and the girls leave tomorrow for a trip with their dad. So it will be me and all the critters in the mud! However Randy says it is snowing in Vegas so at this point - I will take the MUD!

Critters always have little critters when it is most inconvinent for you... so it will be the coldest rainiest night at like 3 in the morning.
