Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Photobucket

Rain does not make life in the barn very happy. Patch the puppy bounces and frolics and could care less about the water and mud, of course. However, we humans are less than happy to find it shaking from him and landing on us while we're doing our chores. Thankfully, Patch would prefer to be inside the barn, happily 'herding' the manure fork from stall floor to wheelbarrow. But when the cleaning is done, it's time for Patch to head back to his room so that he doesn't end up beneath pony feet when it's time to ride.

Despite how she may look, I'm certain that Tika loves being indoors rather than out in the weather. She's simply showing her displeasure at having that unruly forelock of hers combed out. Look at those eyes! Every bit as much expression and emotion as Patch.

And speaking of expression...would you look at this?! Honestly, every time Tango comes out to be saddled, he starts sticking his tongue out. What a character! I'll bet some of you remember Tango as a baby, way back when Sandy was down at Curt's, and that adorable colt was born?

Drip, drip, drop. The rain just does not stop. Thankfully I've got both Curt's arena or the riding club for this dreary season. Cannot wait for sun.

I so hear you Tracey! This rain is awful! My creek is over it's banks, like I have never seen it before. It's just down right crazy.
My poor ponies are up to their knees in mud, never ending mud...
Tika is a doll, I love the look on her face!

I just about died of cute at the first photo. Love the ears on the last one too :)

Shirley said...

I love that first photo, what a cute little rascal! It looks like you have Tika's wild mane all civilized now. Did you get to ride her after all that hard work grooming her?

All 3 have such expressive faces. And I have to say I just LOVE Tango's cute, little, foxy, tipped in ears!

I am so not looking forward to spring and rain!

Linda said...

We're even getting rain over here in Spokane--but not as much standing water as you get, I'm sure. Just lots and lots of mud that freezes at night.

Tina said...

It's lovely seeing Tika's eye looking so soft. :)

That Tango has one fiery pair of ears. Bet he's a pistol!

My how Tango has grown and he'sso grown up he's not being ridden. Boy, time sure does fly!

No rain here today. Hope you got some of the same.There was no sun but just not having wet was good.

Do you know Tangos breeding? He looks just like my step sisters horse...exact same ears...never seen ears quite like before she got her horse Jessie.

Look at all those tipped in ears...so adorable. I certainly don't want your rain, but I'm tired of frozen ground...we're never satisfied! You are very lucky to have those indoor facilities.
