So it is raining in my part of California. Yay!
The downside is that I am finally learning about the soil on our new property.
It seems that I have 10 acres of sliding material. Slippy, slidey, gooey, sticky claymud.
If I was a potter, this would be great. But, I’m not.
The horses are not sliding – yet. Their feet go further down into the sand and they seem to be OK, for now.
But me, I am like a topsoil hydrofoil. I go zipping onto my backside every time I step on a wet spot.
My boots weigh about 100lbs each right now.
What do I do? How do I keep my boots from gathering everything they touch? How to I get the mud off?
Those of you in the know, please educate me!
I’m stuck in the claymuck and can’t get up! Sigh.
