Rain, we have had lots of it. And mud. Danny and City have had lots of rolling time. Yesterday afternoon, we actually saw a little blue sky.

TODAY'S SHOUT OUT It's been raining in Kentucky for the last 100 years (or so it seems). So, our thanks goes out today to the many wonderful supporters who donated Rhino/Rambo Wugs to our horses this winter..These high-quality blankets really do keep the horses dry and much warmer--even in the monsoons. Little Mike and Tinners Way are living proof.
