    ...keep looking up at the house wondering why I am not down there feeding them. Its so rainy and icky out that I just have not been able to get up off my butt to go down and feed them. Of course the barn is probably a mud pit too!

    My two year old filly keeps looking over the fence with the cutest little face. I guess I should go out there before it gets dark! Poor things are probably hungry, but I've been waiting for an hour for the rain to let up. I just guess I'll have to get wet!

    I would rather take care of them in the rain than 90 degree weather. I gave the birds a good shower today and they loved it!!!! The puppies are out playing, the turkeys are having a blast and I am out there sweating my butt off. [​IMG]

    Haha, I don't know about that. As much as I dislike hot, humid weather, I think I dislike rainy muddy days more. I like the rain, but not when I have to get things done outside!

    Of course I think you should come back to me and ask that again when it actually IS hot and humid. I might have a different answer! [​IMG]

    in the winter i used to go out during snowstorms about 6 or more times a day to check on my babies and make sure everything was okay. i'd spend sometimes an hour out there getting the snow off the top of the pen, put in more hay, get more food, more water. oh and the duck house is about as far away from my house as it could possibly be. after that, no weather bothers me! even when its hot and humid, i've got the hose in hand, so i can take a nice "shower" and i get soaked even when its not raining, so i guess it doesn't matter anymore! lol. i sat outside for about 10 minutes in the pouring rain yesterday because my boys kept following me around, so i felt bad to leave them. they are so spoiled.
