It was far too muddy in the paddock area. It had started to dry a bit but then it rained all night Monday and other than the lean-to, everywhere else is deep with mud, so feeling guilty, I opened the pasture to give them a dryer place to be out in. I tossed their morning hay out there and the first thing Misty did was to roll in the one muddy place out there. I've been a bad mommy, she ended up with rub marks on her shoulders from her blanket. New blanket for Misty this year. That one's going in the trash. They stood at the top and ate their hay and then went for a little trot and I didn't see them. I called and they came galloping in,well Misty gallops, Kola tries. Kola's gaited so shes more of a trotter. I yelled for them to take it easy. I'll keep a close eye on them as I don't want any injuries, but it's good for a leg stretch for them. It's dryer out there than it is in. There's really no fresh grass yet as it's still frozen under the mud. I think they appreciate it. Gosh I can't wait for this crap to dry up! Oh, And pardon my mouth breathing, suffering with a bit of cold symptoms!
