Once again

Once again I have managed to get myself into the “I need to be in two places at the same time” dilemma. Tamio cancelled because it is pouring, as did all volunteers, but David was still coming at 8 to do front shoes and check some clinches. Vet coming at 10, okay. But David shows up at 9 and I still haven’t brought the teeth ponies in from the paddock yet! I call and call Roman, who finally hears the cell phone ring and comes to the lower barn to hold, while I run to the upper barn to bring in the volunteers for floating. In a freaking downpour. Seriously. Sandy is right, someone should do a Montpelier Reality Show down here. Nothing happens forever (which is great. I really have come to appreciate uneventful. Isn’t that a Chinese curse? May you live in interesting times? Think so), then total insanity. So, I am soaking wet and covered in mud, but managed to pull yet another rabbit out of my hat. And you know what? The vet is late…

    Ahh yes…I keep telling myself “there is no bad weather, only bad clothing” as the rain runs into my boots and soaks through my slicker…but guess what, the sun has come out, the breeze is up, and maybe just maybe the paddocks will have dried out enough for this evening’s playtime…
