Then, it never rained. I kept checking the radar, and the forecast, and decided I had enough of waiting. I headed out. First up was Jae's "lesson" on Poko.
Jae walked out, grabbed his pony, and I got tack ready. I pulled out a few options, just in case Jae preferred this bridle over that, or these reins over those. Poko was a doll, got caught, and headed up at a nice march. Tied him up, and Jae began prepping his pony. Feet picked, body brushed, and just as he was brushing down the legs, we both felt a few drops. Looked up and... we saw a large dark blob.
Ok, the storm was making a late entrance.
Checked the time, and my vet (for Cali's check up) was about to leave his clinic. Better call, since my stocks are not under cover (yet). Played some phone tag there, as the vet was already in my area at another farm call, and decided that since he was close, he'd just go ahead and drive by to see how bad it was.
No sooner was I off the phone then:
The vet arrived shortly after, and Cali got her check up after all. Jae didn't get to ride, and the arena is very gooey. I think I missed my window, but I'll give it another hour then check. The wind has picked up and things should dry out quickly.
I have to say, I spent 4 hours trying to avoid a 15 minute rain storm, and still managed to get nothing done. Silly weathermen! Noon is NOT "morning storms".
Although, I have to say the grass is VERY green all of a sudden, and we did need the rain, so except for it's late timing, I'm not complaining at all!
