I love this rain…

Yesterday was really wet.  The paddocks are a wonderful spring shade of lush green.  Such a delight to look at after years of brown, crackely grass.

Our farm is on a sand dune.  All this rain has left the ground wet but all the horses still have good footing to run and play.  The sand has some clay in it so it has some “hold” for the foot but not enough clay that it gets too slippery.  Ideal footing for paddocks.  This year has been great, enough rain for green growth and at a rate that it doesn’t super saturate the ground.  Next week promises to be sun and warmth…ah Alberta!

Horses are going great.  Today is day off for most, back at work on Sunday.

Off to morning chores…
