After the storm

This morning's sky is beautiful, isn't it?

When I was walking around in the dark after the storm last night, I saw the two girl horses, Libby and Sassy, in the lot near the barn.  Chief, the temporary resident here, was in his pen.  I did not see Blue and Tude.  Blue is afraid of storms, and I was hoping he was OK. 

I checked the electric fence, and it wasn't working.  Great.

This morning I woke up at 4 AM.  Normally I'd go back to sleep, but I kept wondering if Blue and Tude were OK.  So I got up, took the flashlight, and went looking.  After walking all the way around the alfalfa patch, I found all four horses, and gave each and every one a pat on the nose.

I also checked on Secret, the calf, in the barn.

On my little walk-in-the-dark, I discovered the electric fence was totally down in one spot, and it was obvious that something had run through it.  Most likely a deer, since the horses know where that fence is by heart and never challenge it.  Cliff and I will have that to fix this morning.

I love the sunrise comes in the morning they say!  Glad all the critters were fine, but sorry you all will have the extra work to do today.  I'm hoping all the freezes are over and now everything can grow again.  'On Ya' - ma

I am glad that you and all the animals are safe. I don't know about that trampoline though. Yes, that sunrise is beautiful. It's kinda odd that Blue is afraid of storms when he would have practially walked in front of that loud train the other day. Guess he trusts where you take him. Helen

Yes that is a beautiful sky this morning, you should add that to your blue skies for the Monday Photo Shoot...its just wonderful! The garden looks real good, coming right along.  Guess there will be no trampoline jumping anytime soon...oh well. Crazy weather.

nice photos! Im glad your horses were okay. Last night after the tornado passed thru, Scooter came out of his shelter and acted spooked, running around and carrying on for half the evening.

So, I did not sleep very well thinking he knew something I didnt know!

So glad the animals didn't get out!  I bet things are sure quiet around your place so early in the morning.

Beautiful sunrise!  Does look as though a new trampoline will be in order.
