The horses here are none too thrilled with projections of a northward turn to the Carolinas. They'll load up and go, but they'd rather not. No matter what, I think we're going to get soaked. The question is whether we get the big winds or just big rains. We're already soaked from a strong cold front that blew in today.

Happy happy ponies. It is 55 degrees this morning, and they feel good. Their winter hair is coming in well, so they're ready for brisk mornings. It's still really wet from our storms the other day, but that didn't slow Envoy down on his bolt into the pasture. Kina takes her time everywhere now, but she had her tail flagged and was snorting.

Stalls leveled today. Ugh! There's more to do, but it will require some crush-and-run. We have plans to put some behind the barn where it's always muddy, so we can just get some extra to fix Kina's stall. I think our land is floating into the creek.

Not too bad. I took quite a few beer breaks. Smile Had to share beer with the horses. Who knew? They like Alewerks Tavern Ale.

Yes, well that helps cure anything. As to the horses I had one who liked Guiness.

No night turnout for a while. Ever since we had that little tropical whatever it was, the mosquitoes have been awful. It's been cool at night, so they calmed down, but it's not so cool tonight. They're going to stay in under the fans so they don't get bled dry.

If the fans are on high the skeeters won't be able to land on them. Skeeters are poor flyers when it comes to windy conditions, thank heavens.

That's why I bring them in. I turn on the fans at the top of the stalls, and a few can get in to the far corners, but the horses are smart. They sleep right under the fans. Their hay nets hang so the top fans can blow down, and I have fans I can put in front of the doors if it's hot. That's a bit of overkill now that it's getting cooler.

That much of a breeze will keep them away. Hard to fly against what to them is hurricane speed winds!
