It's been a long, long time since we've seen some of this! I am praising God we have finally gotten some rain. Seriously folks. The cracks in our pasture look like they go down about 4 or 5 feet into the ground. This can cause some serious damage to an animal who's foot gets caught.
Ah! Looking out onto the pool, you can see the rain coming down. It is such a beautiful sight!
The alpacas stayed under cover while they waited for the rain to end. However, it rained for a good portion of the afternoon. So...they were under the eaves for quite a while. Not that I am complaining!
The chickens are a different story. Usually, when it rains, they stay inside too. However, this time, most of the chickens stayed outside during the rain. I don't know if they are expecting worms to work their way up or what! They were running like crazy from one section of the pasture to the next. Maybe the grasshoppers were more prevalent in the rain? I don't know. They sure looked funny running around in the rain, though!
Ok, here is a hint for tomorrow. It's coming home in this... ooh! The excitement is building!


  1. Cyndi,
    During the depression, my great-grandfather raised chickens in his backyard, and the 1-car garage was the henhouse. Family lore was that when it rained, they had to be put into the garage. Otherwise they'd look up at the rain in curiosity and drown in it! "Too dumb to come in out of the rain." Don't know if it's true or not, but that's what they said.

  2. Ha ha ha! I LOVE it! So, true, too!
