Rain, Rain, Go Away! Come Again Some Other Day!
Are you as eager to get into spring training and condition with your critters as I am with mine?
Somehow the weather just doesn't seem to be cooperating. Here in Utah we usually have nice dry sunny weather. But lately it has been raining quite a bit. We had about two weeks of rain, then it dried up and got nice. I was able to fit some training lessons in while the weather was nice. Then the last couple days it has been raining again!
I'm sure the rain will be really good for the plants, but it makes it a little hard for me to do donkey training in my outdoor training areas! I think my donkeys would also like it to dry out a little so they can come out of the barn without getting their feet wet.
When I went out to check on them this afternoon, all the donkeys were standing under the barn roof where they could stay dry.
Here is what my training pen area looked like. I'm sure the water will dry out pretty fast once the rain goes away and the sun comes out, but right now there are puddles everywhere.
So my donkeys got out of school for one day!
Have an idea you'd like to see discussed in a future article?
