More Farm Romance and Marriage Building Exercises

Today was a day full of farm romance and marriage building exercises. I finally identified the source of our leak thanks to the pooling water with the bubbles in it. We’ve had so much rain this week the puddle alone wouldn’t have been enough to identify a leak. Whenever it comes to farm management issues that do not directly relate to horse care my opinions are usually discounted around here. In discussing where our potential leak was with Jason and my dad last week I said that I was pretty certain the leak would be at either X or Y location. They both essentially patted me on the head and told me I didn’t know what I was talking about. As it so turns out the leak was located at “X.” Darn, I hate it when I’m right!

Now Jason, that is not a happy look! I thought your gender really liked playing in the mud??


To repair our leak we had to dig up one of the hydrants. We thought the problem was going to be the hydrant itself, although once we dug down it actually turned out to be the connection to the water line. The actual digging was not that bad. We’ve had inches of rain this week so the ground is more than saturated, plus the leak on top of that. However shovel after shovel of sopping wet mud gets very heavy very quickly. Jason had the pleasure of handling that job.

Muddy hands, muddy clothes, muddy everything by the end of this job!


However the absolute best part wasn’t that we were out there slogging around in the mud and on the saturated ground, it was also raining part of the time while we were working. Seriously, this day was the epitome of everything that people do not think about when they dream of having their horses at home! I mentioned in a recent post that people really

After a couple of hours of digging in, crawling in, and working in the mud we finally had our repairs done. We were so disgusting when we were finished we actually took our clothes off outside before going in the house – good thing we don’t have neighbors! Here’s hoping that we have repaired this leak, I know neither of us care to do this again in the near future!

Jason, turn a frown upside down and smile


Please let this repair be the only one that is needed!

I took this video of Cuff Links and Baby playing over the fence a few days ago. At about 14 seconds that is where they do more than just have a stare-off.
