Sunday dawned clear, finally! After church I headed over to the barn to work on our water issue. At first she thought she could just push me out of the way and not put her feet in the puddle but then felt the sting of the end of the lead rope on her behind. I don't like pushy horses. They are big enough as it is and I am rather petite so I don't like it when they get pushy. I had worn my water proof boots so after I stepped into the water and proved to her that the Thing from the Black Lagoon wasn't going to jump up and kill her she decided that maybe it wasn't so bad after all to stand in the puddle. We walked through so many puddles, I'm sure the other people at the barn thought that I was nuts. Then into the partly flooded roundpen we went! Yay, more water! At this point she did fine. She tried a couple of squirrely maneuvers but nothing that couldn't be handled and pretty soon, into the water she went. She really didn't give me all that much trouble and then we worked on some other stuff and called it a day. It was a good day, all in all!
All the water outside of the roundpen is not usually there. There is a small pond over towards the left that normally you can't even see from the roundpen but with all the rain it flooded the horse pens and started to sneak into the roundpen. If the rain hadn't stopped I don't know how far it would have gone!
