Yippee! A Barn Raising

So much has happened since my last post. The barn is going up and the water well has been drilled. The heavy rains that came through this morning will now set us back for awhile but we can't help but be so thankful for all the progress that has taken place. Right now we are back to the mud and muck. As a matter of fact, the well guys were out there this evening to set the tank and were asked to leave until it dries out a bit. They were making an awful mess. Not quite sure but I think the barn will have to be put off a few days too. The concrete got poured last Thursday in anticipation of the rain today. It is going to be so nice to get out there.

Since all the workers have been out there, Jess and Bridget have been in the catch pen and they are eager to get out.
While Buddy and I were out there yesterday, I walked them over to Mimi and Alan's to get some good green grass. We had some girl time. Some of you notice that Prissy is not in the picture. We moved her up to Theresa's last weekend for Theresa to use while giving lessons. Prissy seems to be perfectly content there with the extra attention and not having to deal with Bridget being so bossy.
There has been a varmit hole behind the storage container. I kept thinking it was an armadillo. I fenced off the back a couple weeks ago to keep the horses from getting back there and stepping off in that hole and now this critter has dug trenches back there. We've concluded that it's a skunk. Whew! Now, how do you get rid of a skunk?
We've had typical Texas weather - hot and dry one day and cold and wet the next. We're expecting a low tonight of 34. Daylight Savings time change and Spring are right around the corner. I can't wait! The neighbor farmers have been busy getting the ground ready to plant. The big tractors have been running just about every day. We've been enjoying listening to the geese flying overhead as they head back north. It's amazing watching them and their aerial acrobatics catching wind gusts. Soon, God in all His wondrous majestry, will have the trees budding and flowers blooming.
Happy trails...
